Butterflies and Bees play an important role in the Web of Life. Many butterflies are closely linked to specific plants and habitats. Bees are one of the most important pollinators, and many flowering plants depend on them. By understanding the significance of Bees and Butterflies in our environment, we can enthusiastically participate in their conservation.
Butterflies and Bees App is an initiative of Earthwatch Institute India to facilitate easy identification of some of the butterflies and bees in the field using mobile application. It is hoped that this mobile application will help increase public awareness and generate greater interest regarding butterflies and bees amongst the young citizens in our country. The App will further strengthen our keenness to observe the bees and butterflies and help us as Citizen Scientist in contributing to the knowledge base.
The app displays information such as:
1. High Resolution image.
2. Common and Scientific names.
3.Key data like IUCN Status, Endemicity, Rarity, Size, Typical Habitat, Localities, Where to Look and Activity.
1. Multiple navigation like Pages, Slider and searchable grid view.
2. Pinch or Double tap to Zoom.
3. Butterflies & Bee slideshow widget!
4. Slideshow mode.
5. In-App brightness control.
6. Set any Butterfly & Bee picture as your Wallpaper.
7. Landscape book style navigation.

Mit der Bienen App kann jeder dazu beitragen, dass Bienen reichlich Pollen und Nektar finden: Einfach mit der App prüfen, welche Blühpflanzen bienenfreundlich sind und dann den eigenen Balkon, die Terrasse oder Garten zum Blühen bringen.
Die Bienen-App bietet noch mehr: Nützliche Pflegehinweise zu den 100 Pflanzen im Lexikon, Mythen und Fakten zu Honigbienen, Hummeln und Co. oder ein Wissens-Quiz.
Features der Bienen App
-Bebildertes Lexikon mit 100 bienenfreundlichen Blühpflanzen
-Filterbar nach ihrem Namen und bestimmten Merkmalen (Gattung, Typ, Blütenfarbe, Standort, Blütezeit, Licht, Bienen-Attraktivität)
-Funktion: „Was blüht gerade?“
-Wissensteil mit überraschenden Infos rund um die schwarz-gelben Bestäuber
-Honigbienen, Wildbienen, Hummeln im Vergleich; Mythen und Fakten; Was leisten Bienen?
Das Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft möchte mit der App dazu beitragen, einer breiten Bevölkerung die Bedeutung der Bienen ins Bewusstsein zu rufen. Wer im Gartenmarkt nach schönen Blumen Ausschau hält, kann jetzt mit seinem Smartphone ganz einfach Bienenfreundlichkeit und Pflegehinweise abrufen. Alle können mitmachen, Bienen zu „füttern“ und Stadt und Land zum Blühen zu bringen. Denn Bienen sind nicht bloß Honigsammler, sondern erbringen eine wichtige Leistung für die Bestäubung von Pflanzen, also für unsere Ernährung und für den Erhalt der biologischen Vielfalt.

WildImage can be used either as a floor plan for museums and other interior trails or can contain flow-diagrams or images that contain clickable Designated Interest Points. These interest points contain text, images, audio, video and multi-choice questions relating to the object. Users of WildImage can also complete a dedicated recording form to upload their own data to the WK Portal.
Using the online creation tool simply load up your map and add media such as text, images, audio, video and quiz questions to your Designated Interest Points (DIPs).
Download your maps to your Android phone or tablet and use the GPS marker to guide you around your trail. WildMap can be used with a live internet connection or can be used offline. In addition to providing DIPs you can also record your own Personal Interest Points (PIPs) as you walk around the destination.
You can also upload, store and visualise your PIP information as reports, charts and maps which can be kept private, or shared with the community as open projects.
Decide where you want to go, then download the relevant walk (we recommend you do this before your visit). Once there, activate the App then use your phone’s GPS to help guide you round the route shown.
As you travel along the route select the information points as you come to them, to learn more about the site’s history and wildlife, or to participate in an activity.
Fresh water is essential for sustaining all life while freshwater ecosystems provide fundamental benefits for people and nature. Yet this crucial resource is very limited and can be easily degraded. As the world’s population grows, ongoing urban expansion and agricultural intensification will increase the pressure on this resource.
To successfully manage the world’s fresh water, we need to improve our understanding of how water quality varies across landscapes and over time, yet surprisingly little data are available. Such information is difficult and time consuming for scientists to gather, which is where you come in. With your help we can vastly increase the amount of data to fill gaps in our knowledge across the globe.
The information that you will help collect will directly inform fresh water policy and practice, meaning that the world’s vital water resources are better understood and conserved. You will be joining a network of over 20 research projects that are being facilitated by Earthwatch with the support of the HSBC Water Programme.
Thanks for your help!
