BCT are developing a series of exciting new community science surveys which utilise the latest developments in acoustic sensor design, automated call recognition and interactive volunteer feedback. Follow the links below for more details.

We are currently looking to contract an Amazon Web Services specialist:

We oversee a suite of bat monitoring surveys in which participants use acoustic sensors to make sound recordings of bats. These recordings are uploaded to a sound classification system hosted on Amazon Web Services, which uses a series of machine-learning algorithms to automatically classify the recorded sounds to species. We require an AWS specialist, either an individual or organisation, to suggest and implement improvements to this system. Click here for more information and to express an interest in this contract.

Please send any queries to Katherine Boughey at kboughey@bats.org.uk. All expressions of interest must arrive by 11:00am on 15th September 2021.
