Listen and Conserve with Project Terra with Mike Lanzone & Scott Whittle

June 3, 2021

One of the dreams of the “internet of nature” was a device that birders could put in their yard that picks up GPS fitted and tracked wildlife, and maybe even identifies them when they pass over your home. That device is here and it is called Terra. Mike Lanzone of Cellular Tracking Technologies and birder and writer Scott Whittle, are the creators of this magic device. They both join me to talk about what it can do, and how it will change migration monitoring forever.

If you want to contribute to their kickstarter, here’s the link.

Also, do you have birding enemies? Billy Baker of the Boston Globe thinks he does and Nate has thoughts.
