The app is an important asset while travelling roads or hiking in nature or in urban areas to help with the situation and protect nature and the environment. By reporting your roadkills findings, you are helping by providing streamlined data for the scientific analysis of the current situation regarding the topic. With your entries, the science team then can identify hotspots at which roadkill occur regulary and adress those issues by e.g. building tunnels for migrating toads and frogs, or construct wildlife bridges over roads in cooperation with NGOs and local authorities.
Roadkill | SPOTTERON is designed for outdoor use and utilizes OpenStreetMap and is designed for modern smartphones. You can register your own SPOTTERON User within the app and start adding roadkill spots to the database.

to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment. It is hoped that this mobile application will help increase awareness and understanding about butterflies and bees amongst fellow citizens.
The Birdlife in India is truly amazing. Birds play an important role in the Web of Life. By understanding the significance of Birds in our environment, we can enthusiastically participate in their conservation.
Bird Find App is an initiative of Earthwatch Institute India to facilitate easy identification of some of the birds in the field using mobile application. It is hoped that this mobile application will help increase public awareness and generate greater interest regarding birds amongst fellow citizens in our country. The App will further strengthen our keenness to observe the environment 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.
4. Key data like IUCN Status, Endemicity, Rarity, Size, Typical Habitat, Localities, Where to Look, Activity etc,
1. Multiple navigation like Pages, Slider and searchable grid view.
2. Pinch or Double tap to Zoom.
3. Birds slideshow widget!
4. Slideshow mode.
5. In-App brightness control.
6. Set any Bird picture as your Wallpaper.
7. Landscape book style navigation.
8. Report your own sighting record
WIKWIO project aims to strengthen science and technology orientation to achieving food security by enhancing agricultural productivity in the Southern African region. Wikwio will deploy appropriate ICT solutions to build a multi-stakeholder community of researchers, extension services, civil society and farmers around an ICT knowledge base of weeds.
¡Descubre, conoce y comparte! NaturaLista te ayuda a registrar tus observaciones del mundo natural y agregarlas a una red social para gente interesada en la naturaleza de México y del mundo. Visita el sitio http://conabio.inaturalist.org/pages/ayuda para conocer cómo funciona.
NaturaLista te ayuda a llevar la lista de las especies de plantas y animales que vas encontrando. Al registrarlas podrás ir conociendo cada vez más sobre ellas y sobre la naturaleza que te rodea.
La red social de NaturaLista te permite dialogar con otros participantes y pedir ayuda sobre la identificación de tus observaciones. Sube la foto con la aplicación, envíala a NaturaLista y recibirás ayuda sobre tu observación.
CONSTRUYE UNA LISTA DE VIDA
Al registrar tus observaciones, NaturaLista te ayudará automáticamente a completar la lista de organismos que has visto en tu vida.
La naturaleza de México y del mundo está amenazada por la destrucción de hábitat, la sobrexplotación de especies, la introducción de especies invasoras, la contaminación y el cambio climático. Tú puedes ayudar a científicos, conservacionistas y a otros interesados mediante tus observaciones de plantas, hongos y animales. Quizá descubras a una planta que se creía extinta o quizá contribuyas a entender la distribución de alguna especie poco estudiada.
La aplicación NaturaLista se desarrolló mediante la colaboración de CONABIO e iNaturalist.
Mithilfe der erhobenen Witterungsdaten werden Zusammenhänge zwischen Temperaturverlauf und Naturentwicklung der Wildgehölze und landwirtschaftlichen Kulturarten erforscht und so Auswirkungen der Klimaänderung analysiert.

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!
The Project Squirrel app is part of a long-term study that uses tree squirrels to help us understand the ecology of neighborhoods throughout the country. While some places may have three species of tree squirrel, other locations may have none at all and, over time, all this may change. This app is designed to make it quick and simple to regularly enter data about the nature in your neighborhood. It also allows you to send pictures and to see where other observations have been made near you. This is a nationwide study that everyone can be involved in.
What to do:
Take a look around your home, office, school, or anywhere you are and, whether you see squirrels or not, submit your observations. We want to know where squirrels are as well as where they aren’t. You can submit observations of dead squirrels, too. All of your observations are valuable.
You can submit as many observations from as many places as you like. It’s most effective to submit at least one observation per site per season but the more observations the better.
Anyone of any age can participate. Make it an office game or a classroom project, compare notes with friends in other states, get your family involved—everyone can observe nature.
How the app works:
Once you download the app, log in using Facebook, google +, or you can make up an anonymous username. By logging in, the app can remember your location and streamline data entry.
The home page has three buttons. Using the clipboard icon you can quickly submit your data by following the question prompts. If you want to, click on the camera icon to take a picture of the squirrel or habitat and submit it with your data. The “view maps” icon will let you explore places where other observations have been made and places where more observations need to be made.
Visit our website projectsquirrel.org for more information, lesson plans that help you learn more about squirrels and neighborhood ecology, outlines for experiments you can do at home or school, and more.
The app will ask for a few permission that make it function on your phone. We will never spam you.
