In a remote village in rural southwestern Rwanda, community members are volunteering to record bird vocalizations in an effort to boost wildlife conservation. Using a mobile phone connected to a parabolic reflector, volunteers collect sounds from various birding hotspots. The initiative is part of a collaboration between the Planet Birdsong Foundation and the University of Rwanda to connect people with nature through bird sound listening and recording. The project aims to equip young students with the skills to observe, record, and identify bird species through their sounds. The collected data is used for scientific monitoring and conservation efforts.
