Measurement and monitoring of biodiversity

Every 20 minutes, a species disappears.


Biodiversity is threatened

In the face of an ever-developing society, increasingly massive urbanisation and growing pollution, it is becoming more and more difficult to protect biodiversity. It is in under threat and to protect it, we need to combat:

  • Pollution
  • Reduction of natural environments
  • Overexploitation of wildlife
  • Invasive non-native species
  • Climate change

Lengthy and costly monitoring

Today, inventories are carried out manually and require the mobilisation of resources (people, equipment, time).

The average duration of an inventory is 2 to 3 years for a municipality, and varies according to the size, the degree of thoroughness required and the ecological complexity of the area. The results must then be analysed and formalised internally before an action plan can be prepared.

An inventory can cost up to €38,000 which is a very significant investment.


All this results in fragmented analyses over time, species counts carried out at intervals of several years and a risk of being unaware of the decline of a species due to a lack of regular inventories.


Our solution: Use technology to listen to and protect nature

Birdz has teamed up with the French Natural History Museum to put all its expertise into a comprehensive and accessible solution: a sensor to listen to nature and a portal allowing you to access biodiversity data from your local area.


How does our solution work? 

Our sensor is installed in the environment that you want to listen to and monitor. It can be positioned on the ground, on a roof or on a mast and is powered from the mains or a photovoltaic panel.


This acoustic sensor uses the latest technologies developed in the field of the IoT and sound recognition (ultrasound microphones). This allows a wide range of sound/ultrasound to be continuously monitored and for the surrounding activity to be recorded.


The information collected is then presented in a dedicated portal that allows the state of biodiversity to be easily measured via key indicators: total number of contacts per species, frequency of those contacts, changes in species abundance, as well as notes on the health of the ecosystem…
