    About This Project

    At Orcasound, we use underwater microphones (hydrophones) to monitor and conserve the endangered orcas that are iconic in Seattle (WA, USA). The expense of the hydrophones impedes our ability to grow our cooperative network. With more hydrophones where sighting networks identify individuals and matrilines visually, our goal is to develop voice ID for orcas.

    Can we build cheaper hydrophones and improve our orca call detection AI to infer which matriline is signaling?

    Blast off!
