The A2O, in partnership with ABC Science and the University of New England, have developed Hoot Detective for National Science Week 2021. Hoot Detective is a digital citizen science project where participants can identify owl species, as well as other audible organisms, from across Australia. Anna Salleh’s article Listening to the planet: Understanding the science of ecoacoustics provides more information about the project. To start finding owls and other critters that call in the night, follow the link to Hoot Detective now, and happy listening!
The Australian Acoustic Observatory, recording a ‘galaxy of sounds’ across multiple ecosystems, was featured on ABC News today. Follow the story here and learn more about this world-first project.
