The Bookend Trust, through our NatureTrackers program, has recently launched the CallTrackers project – so anyone in Tasmania can help monitor bats through recording their calls. To build software able to identify bat species from recorded calls, we need lots of recordings of calls where bats have been identified first. We are looking for bat roosts! We can identify the species of bat in the roost, and then record them when they head off in the evenings.
If you’ve noticed somewhere where, at least sometimes, bats shelter during the day, the CallTracker Team would love to hear from you here.
