    I am the founder of WildObs and I wanted to say thank you for listing WildObs here; it is wonderful to be referenced in your magazine.

    It is great to see the breadth of how mobile devices are helping connect people with nature, and I’m excited to see the continued innovation with mobile devices and conservation.

    Making the human-nature connection even faster and stronger using smart phone technology is genius. I hope you continue to inform us of apps as they are released 🙂

    Great to see this growing trend. Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service has two apps, both of which not only help with species recognition, but also allow users to log sightings for contribution to species mapping. One is for birds, and is called “Bird in the Hand” and the other is called “Frog Log” & you can guess what that one’s for 😉
