Climate change brings dramatic consequences to ecosystems that face the danger of extinction. Tech companies have embarked on a mission to develop a special app which may prove to be extremely helpful for biosystems. If you want to protect endangered species closer to home, there is a new app for that. The US Fish and Wildlife Service has partnered with FishBrain, a Swedish company which owns a social network and an app which tracks weather, wind direction, water quality and other data points of interest to people who fish or are just passionate about observing wildlife.
The app will be upgraded with special features to identify species of fish and other structures of wildlife that live near water and face the danger of extinction.
The new initiative helps people log any sightings of up to 50 at risk species spotted as they cross waterways. The list of protected animals across the country include shortnose sturgeons, whooping cranes the Columbia white-tailed deer and ridley sea turtles.
A new app which can help spot endangered species will raise a little bit more awareness over the perils of our fast changing world. Wildlife is extremely diverse and we sometimes fail to understand that, as we limit our perspective to the selfish goals that define our attitudes. We ignore diversity of life and even if sometimes ignorance is bliss, in this particular case leads to dramatic consequences.
US Fish and Wildlife Service provided an entire list of threatened or endangered species, as well as other possible candidates for protection under the Endangered Species Act. The mentioned species live in lakes, streams, estuaries or other bodies of water. The US Federal conservation agency hopes the new “app” initiative will offer precious help to researchers that will have the opportunity to discover where the dwindling critters are centralized. Also, they could be offered information related to the habitat they need and the way the public could help protect native wildlife.
FishBrain is the perfect choice for developing an app exclusively dedicated to analyzing and protecting wildlife. They own the largest social network for fishing enthusiasts and they hold all the know-how needed in order to come up with the best software, a helping hand to protect the world we live in.
FishBrain developed an app to protect endangered species and this is an example other tech companies could follow in order to raise the level of awareness in matters related to the importance of protecting and preserving our environment.
