Learn with Barbastella Academy
Welcome to Barbastella Academy
Bat sound analysis is daunting, it sometimes feels like a bit of a dark art. Let us be your guide on this journey. With experience with bat sound analysis from around the world, our approach brings a unique perspective to the field, combining methods and practices from all continents. This experience is reflected in the philosophy of our training content that aims to be as accessible as possible as well as as relevant as possible to your region.
The Big Bat Course: a comprehensive introduction to bat acoustics
The Big Bat Course gives you all the tools you need to (re)start analysing bat calls, be it for research or for commercial work. Because bat sound analysis starts in the field, we'll start by covering the best recording practices as well as the equipement before moving on to the analysis part, including the use of classifiers and related topics such as where to find reliable information, critically analysing sources of acoustic, etc. This course is the most comprehensive to date and, thanks to Nils' experience on all continents, is applicable to every region around the world. The sessions will be delivered on Zoom (with recordings available on the same page) on 14, 18, 21, 25 and 28 April. Thursday sessions are at 6PM GMT, the Monday sessions are at 11AM GMT.
