Hoot Detective, the citizen science project developed by ABC Science, the A2O and the University of New England, has been featured on Off Track (14/08/2021). Off Track is presented by Ann Jones and Jo Khan, and is an amazing radio program on the ABC about the sounds of nature, ecology, and the researchers behind the science. Please check out the program here, featuring QUT’s very own Callan Alexander and Marina Scarpelli.
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.
We need your help to search for night fauna at QUT’s Samford Ecological Research Facility.
By finding as many vocalisations of Powerful Owls, Southern Boobooks and Bush-stone Curlews as you can, you will not only help give a better understanding of the presence of these wonderful animals at Samford, but you will also contribute valuable data that will help us build powerful tools to make the task of conducting acoustic ecological surveys easier.

‘Listening to Nature: The Emerging Field of Bioacoustics’ is a recent story written by Adam Welz for Yale Environment 360 exploring the growing use of acoustic technologies in ecological research. The Australian Acoustic Observatory gets a special mention, as does Professor Dave Watson, one the observatory’s Chief Investigator Managers.
