OSA EARS / OSA Peninsula / Costa Rica

OSA EARS is a project designed to provide real time 3D sound and a cloud of species and climate change data from one of our planet’s most bio-diverse rain forests to anyone anywhere in the world with internet. A networked array of microphones, web cams and sensor banks will expand over time to cover OSA Conservation’s entire 5000 acre wildlife corridor, from ground level to canopy top. Located on Costa Rica’s Osa peninsula OSA EARS will create a broad based platform for researchers and artists interested in habitat protection, soundscape ecology, remote sensing and bird song. It will serve as a home base for cutting edge field work, offering an opportunity to develop and adapt surveillance and sensor technologies for inter-disciplinary wildlife monitoring and protection. Our technology partners are top level. We are in fund raising mode.
