It is a low-cost, open-source acoustic monitoring device used for monitoring wildlife. AudioMoth is not only sensitive to audible sounds but well into ultrasonic frequencies. It records uncompressed audio onto a micro SD card from 8,000 to 384,000 samples per second.
This units can be programmed to monitor wildlife populations by recording the calls of specific target species. Furthermore, it can serve as an alert system detecting sounds of human exploitation, such as the blast of a shotgun or the roar of a chainsaw.
A popular research tool for environmental and biodiversity researchers worldwide. Most importantly you can now find unattended AudioMoths in some very unexpected places such as rain forests, jungles, and bat caves worldwide.
