New app to help with conservation efforts

Conservation concerns in Cambodia have hit smart-phones with a free mobile application, or app, for wildlife warriors to monitor illegal trade in endangered species.

The app, called Wildlife Watch, was developed by a consortium including Wildlife Alliance, TRAFFIC and Jeff Corwin Connect.

It aims to “increase awareness and protect the wildlife of South East Asia”.

The iPhone app provides a regularly updated Incident Report that pinpoints illegal trade hotspots and allows users to report illegal handling of animals directly to Wildlife Alliance.
