About this app

This application provides access to 1,654 high quality images of 631 species of marine life of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, including over 130 species with detailed ecological information. You can browse by common or scientific name within all species at once, or by large functional group (birds, marine mammals, fishes, invertebrates, and algae). This app is lightweight and can be downloaded over a cellular connection. Each photo is downloaded “on demand” over a cellular connection, and subsequently become permanently stored on your device for immediate access in the future. You can even share your favorite photos through Twitter and email.

One of our nation’s most spectacular marine protected areas, Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is filled with an amazing array of wildlife – from tiny shrimp to giant blue whales. Stretching along the central California coast from San Francisco to Cambria, the sanctuary includes pristine beaches, jewel-like tide pools, lush kelp forests, steep canyons and an offshore seamount hosting 34 species of marine mammals, more than 100 species of seabirds and shorebirds, more than 400 species of fish and countless invertebrates and algae. We invite you to explore and help protect this national undersea treasure.

This app was funded by "Save the Earth," and developed by "hot-n-GUI" (hotngui.com).

You must know the name of what you are looking at in order to find it. If you dont, this app wont help you at all. If you run across something you are trying to ID by sight, good luck on that. You'll guess at 30-40 names then give up. Would be MUCH more useful if you could view photos, then click the photo to get an ID.
