New app helps 'citizen scientists' keep track of marine mammals

One of the Small Business Award finalists 2015, Dreamweave Digital, was approached to create an app which would allow registered users to help keep track of marine mammals in our oceans.

Managing director of Dreamweave Digital, Jonathan Vass, says the app is simply a tool to help citizen scientists to contribute to the knowledge of marine mammals.

He says the app will benefit marine biologists and researchers.

The app called Seafari went live this week and is free to download.

All they are trying to do is to fill in some gaps in the current knowledge about the migration patterns of these animals.

This is good for people who are interested in marine mammals to register and see where the latest citings are and be able to contribute.
