Welcome to Terra

Save the world from the comfort of your yard

The Terra Project's goal is to connect people to nature while creating a new conservation tool to help preserve wildlife on a global scale.

We’ll do this by creating Terra devices: small, weatherproof audio and radio receivers that you put in your yard.

These devices will give you a number of ways to listen and learn about the birds and animals nearby, while collecting data for a massive conservation database.

The first step is to build a community to support Terra through a Kickstarter campaign which will launch in May 18th, 2021.

How Terra Works

Purchase your Terra device via Kickstarter and place it wherever you’d like: deck, garden, lawn, wall or roof.

Listen to your yard or

Everything is brought together with our companion app, which allows you to listen, learn, track, connect and manage your yard.
