Title: Endangered Birds and How to Find Them (Using Bioacoustics) FREE!
How does a small team monitor the presence of a highly mobile, endangered bird species in an area that covers more than 3,000 square kilometers? Have the only two endemic seabirds of Hawaii being secretly breeding on an island where they were assumed to be locally extinct? How do you find one of the critically endangered hard-to-survey frugivores on the island of Trinidad? Hear from three researchers solving these dilemmas and more using wildlife audio recorders and analysis software.
