Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of a bioacoustic researcher is like.
Before they can use technology to record and analyze the sounds of wildlife, bioacoustic researchers must be able to identify the sounds that different animals make. Check out these animal sound recordings from SeaWorld to explore a wide variety of animal sounds – can you tell the difference between an adult harbor seal and her pup?
BONUS! Create a simple googleslides activity with your 5 favorite animal sounds from the link above. Play them for your friends – can they guess the animal?
Optional: Share your bioacoustics activity in the Showcase and build your resume!
