‘Listening for Nature:

Using ecoacoustics to engage communities and document Victoria’s birdlife.’

Karen will provide examples of research projects in Victoria that have benefited from these new technologies, from detecting the presence of critically endangered species to engaging community groups in the assessment of bird diversity in different habitats.
