Apps for Animals
Apps to help animals
There are a number of ways you can help animals by using apps. An increasing number of animal charities are using htem to make it easier for us all to make a difference. Here are some examples - this list will grow, so please come back and visit it :-)
The Good Fish Guide is the definitive guide to sustainable seafood and its aim is to help you make the right choice when buying fish, being in a supermarket or fishmongers. You can search by a common fish name and the App explains the traffic light rating systems, so that you can easily tell what you can and can't eat, and the fish you should only eat occasionally. If you can't download apps, there's an online guide you can print off instead. Click here to download this app from the Marine Conservation Society.
Report Illegal Wildlife Trade
You can now report suspected illegal wildlife trade in South-East Asia using a smartphone app developed by the Taronga Conservation Society Australia in partnership with TRAFFIC. Called Wildlife Witness, you can take a photo, pining the exact location of an incident and sending the details to TRAFFIC. Reports will be analysed so that information can build up data over time and help further understanding of the illegal wildlife trade in the area, so that it can be tackled in the best way.
