What is the project?

Birds are vulnerable to human-induced change in their surroundings and several species all over the world, are under the threat of population decline. For ecologists, the use of technology supplements many traditional field studies, which are usually human as well as cost-intensive and are limited in their scalability. Technology can be used to create systems which cut down human effort and can scale up to collect and analyse vast amount of data.More Info
