Introduction to Bat Call Analysis

Introduction to bat call analysis

Nine microbat species occur within the metropolitan Adelaide area, but because they are small, nocturnal and difficult to detect, few people notice them!
Specialised equipment and training is required to decipher their echolocation signals, come along to our bat workshops to learn about how scientists understand bat calls.

We are running four community workshops with local bat researcher Dr Annette Scanlon, under the guidance of local bat expert, Terry Reardon (SA Museum). At the first three workshops (Kaurna Wetlands, Warriparinga Wetlands, and Adelaide Botanic Gardens: 13th - 19th August), we will discuss the local bats and their role in the ecosystem, how to monitor bats and provide a hands-on trial of using the bat detection equipment, and install two bat detectors to collect data in the days after. For more information and to register for these other workshops, please visit 

At this workshop (The Joinery, Adelaide) you will be shown how to analyse the data collected at the previous three workshops and their results.
