"Every continent, including parts of Antarctica is being monitored by Song Meter bioacoustics recording systems," said Ian Agranat, President and CEO of Wildlife Acoustics. "I am thrilled and amazed that our Song Meters are capturing Mother Nature's biophony on virtually every part of the globe.  From the Amazon jungle of Brazil to the lava flats of Hawaii to the forests of central Africa and pole to pole, our systems are constantly listening to a vast variety of wildlife in the most extreme and remote corners of the earth."

This milestone is testimony to the staying power and continuous improvements in Wildlife Acoustics' Song Meter platform of bioacoustics recorders, accessories and software.

"There is a renewed sense of urgency in recent years to monitor the biodiversity and health of ecosystems in the face of dramatic global environmental change," says Ian. "The conversation about the loss of critical habitat and the dramatic and alarming rise in species extinction rates has become more frequent and vocal.  I am finding that our Song Meters are quickly becoming mission-critical tools in capturing baseline environmental data, monitoring trends, and developing strategies for mitigation."

Wildlife Acoustics is constantly reinvesting in new technologies to improve the effectiveness of bioacoustics data collection and analysis.  Its mission is to serve the needs of biologists and conservationists around the globe and create tools that enable them to better understand the changes in the global environment.

In celebration of this special event, Wildlife Acoustics will showcase the field work of the recipient of the 10,000th Song Meter bioacoustics recorder.
