Marine noise mitigation for offshore wind farm
Bioacoustics was an important part of our marine noise mitigation work for Borkum Riffgrund 1 wind farm, where we used an innovative method for monitoring porpoise activity using full-spectrum recordings instead of click detectors.
Our specialist bioacousticians also designed their own automatic classifiers to detect the porpoise clicks more efficiently.
Baker Consultants – Bioacoustics services
Leading bioacoustics service from our specialist bioacousticians
Baker Consultants has a dedicated in-house bioacoustics consultancy team with significant experience in processing large amounts of biological acoustic data. Our experience covers a variety of species, from bats and birds to marine mammal monitoring.
Operating in both the marine and terrestrial environments, our bioacoustics team offers an alternative to conventional survey techniques that can be much more cost-effective and defensible at public inquiry. Baker Consultants is actively developing innovative new ecology survey techniques that are backed-up by peer-reviewed research.
Our services include:
- Data collection, analysis and consultancy
- Signal processing and interpretation
- Remote recording of marine mammal, bat and nightjar vocalisations.

Our new remote sensing service has launched
We now offer a comprehensive remote sensing data capture and data analysis service.
Together, our in-house GIS and ecological survey experts, bioacousticians and Chief UAV Engineer and Pilot have developed an entirely new approach to gathering marine mammal and sea bird data, combining conventional boat based surveys (e.g. Marine Mammal Observer surveys and JNCC European Seabirds at Sea (ESAS) bird surveys) with innovative UAV-gathered high definition aerial photography and bioacoustic surveys of cetaceans and seabirds.
