Wildlife Products

Isoperla make wildlife products for mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. We make apps for smartphones and tablets, and physical devices built around embedded processors.


Automatic Recognition

Isoperla reinvented wildlife field guides for the mobile age with Automatic Recognition. This software identifies bird species from songs picked out of the air using the device microphone, like Shazam for birds. The The Times Newspaper called it an 'astonishingly sophisticated piece of software'.

We were the first company in the world to perform Automatic Recognition in real time. We were the first to offer Automatic Recognition on a mobile or consumer device. We are still years ahead of any one else.

Technology Experts

We specialise in resource limited devices, mobile platforms such as iOS & Android and Internet of Things (IoT) embedded processors such as Raspberry Pi. We have a comprehensive understanding of the technologies underpinning these systems. We use a blend of agile and traditional techniques to build robust well architected solutions.

We have our own highly functional application framework which supports seamless server integration, data synchronisation, mapping, geolocation and custom user interface controls.

Partnership Opportunity

Would you like to join us on an exiting new journey? We created the world’s leading brand of wildlife apps. We are now looking for partners to help us bring physical Automatic Recognition devices to market for professional use.

Our wildlife audio recorder has automatic recognition on board. The device records and stores bird song during the day and bats at night. It analyses the recordings in real-time and lists possible species, no connection to the internet or mobile network is needed.

The device can be left outside without supervision and collected at a later date. The same hardware can be used to identify birds or bats. If a signal is available it can send alerts over the mobile phone network when a particular species is identified as being present.

Wildlife App Range

Isoperla developed the world’s leading brand of wildlife apps, these have sold around $1M worth through the iOS and Android app stores. We sold this brand of apps to our good friends at Sunbird (Mullen and Pohland) in 2016. The films above relate to the products at the point at which we transferred them over to Sunbird. Please check with them about the current status of the apps before purchasing.
