Cotton Landcare Tech Innovations: Improved natural capital (biodiversity) on Australian cotton farms

This project is part of the National Landcare Program’s Smart Farming Partnerships initiative. It aims to build on international best practice to implement and develop cutting-edge technologies to help Australian cotton better report on and improve on-farm biodiversity. The project uses world leading expertise in automated acoustics to deploy innovative acoustic technologies to actively monitor, manage, and report on biodiversity for a subset of bird and microbat species. The project seeks to identify which bird and microbat species to target for acoustic monitoring in Australian cotton systems, and then develop automatic recognisers for these species.
