So I put my new AudioMoth up a tree to monitor some bats for a few nights. I put it within the plastic bag provided. There has been quite a bit of water ingress (we've had some heavy rain). Curiously it seems to be working ok, and the sounds recording has worked fine. I'm guessing that if I put this within a rainforest for a month, it's quite likely to get trashed if housed within a plastic bag. Do you have any ideas as to what would help solve this? Thanks!
Hi all, We are conducting AudioMoth acoustic surveys at the same time as point-transect surveys. Secondary surveyors will be tasked with capturing acoustic data at predetermined point stations throughout the day. We recognize secondaries shouldn't hold the devices in their hand, wear it as a necklace, and so forth, because any subtle movement might distort the audio. We were thinking about attaching it to a hat (velcro?) or a headlamp. Maybe attach the device to a PVC? Does anyone have recommendations on a potential apparatus?
