Bat Locator App Will Make You a Citizen Scientist, Brings High Frequency Bat Sounds to Human Hearing Range

Citizen scientists who voluntarily collect and record data on bats, birds, frogs or other animals, have a new tool from a Boston-based company, Wildlife Acoustics, for finding bats.

Danielle Gustafson, Board Member at Bat Conservation International, explains bat echolocation detection, which is facilitated by a technology company known as Wildlife Acoustics. The app with its hardware appliance could be called the Shazam of animal sounds. One app can identify birds by their songs without a hardware appliance, but the bat detector requires a hardware appliance that brings noises above the hearing range of humans down to the hearing range that humans can here. some bats echolocate with sounds over 100 kHz or way over 150 kHz. Humans don’t hear their generated sounds because the hearing range for humans is about 20 Hz to 20 kHz.
