One of the foremost challenges we face in conservation is understanding how effective different conservation strategies are. Such effectiveness, especially in terms of biodiversity conservation, can be very difficult to measure, time consuming, and prone to many different biases. Bioacoustics, and specifically the recording and analysis of entire soundscapes, could be a suitable tool for monitoring animal biodiversity in the conservation areas as well as sustainably managed forests.
