Listen for whales

Orcasound connects your headphones to live hydrophones (underwater microphones), your ears to an ocean of sound. Help us explore and conserve marine life around the globe, starting with studying and saving the southern resident killer whales of the Pacific Northwest. As an Orcasound citizen scientist, you can listen for whales or learn more about marine bioacoustics.

Orcasound is a cooperative hydrophone network and we welcome your participation. If you’d like to host a hydrophone, do research, or incorporate Orcasound into the educational or outreach efforts of your organization, you can join us as a member of the network. You can also support the network financially, as a volunteer, or as a contributor to our open-source software. Learn more about our recent projects below!
