Sperm Whales Diving
Sperm Whale dives can last as long as an hour. During this time they will not be visible so PAM is the best method of detectionDownload

Use the Whistle and Moan detector to detect and localise dolphins when they are not so obviousDownload
Dolphin whistles are detected using the PAMGuard whistle and moan detectorDownload
Not sure which species?
Use the whistle classifier to distinguish which species' are being detectedDownload
Our vision for
the PAMGUARD initiative
To address the fundamental limitations of existing cetacean passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) software capabilities by creating an integrated PAM software infrastructure that is open source and available to all PAM users for the benefit of the marine environment. The PAMGUARD project was set up to provide the world standard software infrastructure for acoustic detection, localisation and classification for mitigation against harm to marine mammals.Get Started with Pamguard
Develop with the Pamguard API
Developers are welcome to modify and add to the core features of PAMGUARD.
Of course we hope that you will do so in a way which is compatible with existing features.
