Immerse yourself in nature – while saving & protecting wildlife

Terra allows you to listen live to the bird, animal and natural sounds around you with crystal-clear detail. Terra teaches you by automatically identifying those sounds, and giving you in-depth information about birds and animals in the Terra app. Whether it's your backyard or specially curated wild places around the globe, you’ll get a rare opportunity to enjoy nature right from the comfort of your home – while contributing to conservation and research on a global scale.
