Volunteering Opportunity | Zooniverse - Identify and Classify calls

Manatee acoustic communication has not been studied extensively because it has been believed that manatees have a very limited communication system, which acts mainly as a contact call between a mother and calf. This project will investigate the form and function of manatee vocalizations, and it will allow us to learn more about what signals manatees produce, what potential function they might serve, and what differences individual manatee calls have.

As a Virtual Volunteer you will:

  • Identify and classifiy manatee calls
  • There is an online tutorial and software you will use to clasify the different sounds.
