Help Us Save Raven Lite!

For almost 10 years, a dedicated team of scientists at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology has provided the Raven Lite sound recording, visualization, and analysis software, free of charge to scientists and natural sound enthusiasts around the globe--including you!

We now ask you for your support to help us save Raven Lite.

Because of limited financial resources we are not able to update and maintain Raven Lite anymore. The current version is not compatible with upcoming JAVA versions and will become obsolete in the near future.

Please help us to secure the necessary funding to keep Raven Lite alive. With your support we will upgrade Raven Lite so it will continue to be compatible with new JAVA versions. We will also include new features that have previously only been available in Raven Pro:

    • Unlimited sound recording capabilities,
    • Automated animal sound detection algorithms,
    • Advanced sound visualization capabilities,
    • And much more!
