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.
