Description

Chelonia specialised in wildlife acoustic monitoring. Since 2006, Chelonia PODs have revolutionised the way cetaceans are studied in the wild. Using fully automated passive acoustic monitoring instruments, it is possible to detect porpoises, dolphins and other toothed whales (except sperm whales) by recognising the trains of echo-location sounds they produce to detect their prey, orientate and interact.
