RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Wildlife Camera Kits & Cases

The Naturebytes Wildlife Cam Kit is a motion-sensitive, wildlife camera that anyone can build to remotely capture high definition photos and videos of wildlife. The kit is powered by the Raspberry Pi, a credit-card-sized programmable computer, making it a fun way to develop your digital making skills and provide an exciting new insight into the natural world around you.

Our Wildlife Cam Cases come as part of the Kit or can be bought separately. The cases are specifically designed to be weatherproof and can protect your tech from exposure to the elements.

Build it, set it up outdoors and share your wildlife images online with the Naturebytes community.

Naturebytes Around the World

Our range of wildlife technologies is being adapted by conservationists to research and protect wildlife around the world. Here are a few inspiring examples from thermal cameras monitoring polar bears in the Arctic to underwater cameras on the backs of turtles in Príncipe, off the west coast of Africa.

Watch How

Nest Boxes

The NestBox uses similar technology to the Wildlife Cam Kit, enabling people to live stream, capture video, photos and monitor nesting birds in their garden. The users record their observations via the online portal, creating interesting content and providing valuable monitoring data.

This kit is being brought to life with our partners the Belgian Museum of Natural Sciences as part of a national educational project in Belgium. The project is reaching between 300-500 schools each year and up to 30,000 children a year for three years!

Audio Moth

An AudioMoth is a low-cost, full-spectrum acoustic logger, made by Open Acoustic Devices. Just like its namesake the moth, the AudioMoth can listen to audible frequencies, well into ultrasonic frequencies. This amazing new technology is used by conservationists in the field to record the soundscapes of different ecosystems. Acoustic loggers allow species populations and anthropogenic noise pollution levels to be monitored. Most recently the AudioMoth has been modified to record the sounds of bats and to capture the underwater soundscape, such as in studies researching interactions between whale species and large ships.
With Naturebytes students as young as 10 have had the opportunity to use the AudioMoth to experience wildlife in different ways as part of our education programmes encouraging young people to take climate action. In our youth-led climate action labs, students record local soundscapes using AudioMoths and use computer recognition software to ID species present in the area.

Research & Development

We are developing an ecosystem of new accessible technologies that enable people to simply assemble and monitor their environments. One example of our new concepts is the Weather Station. Created in collaboration with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the Weather Station can be combined with the Cam Kit, enabling schools to simply collect images, real-time weather data and air-quality information.
