Each month we are promoting a new citizen science app. Apps are a great way to get to learn about a new Citizen Science project, record your findings and send them off to become part of a bigger project. We are encouraging our staff and volunteers to try out these apps so please have a go and let us know how you get on.
This month’s app is PlantTracker:
Help track Britain’s non-native invasive plant species by downloading the PlantTracker app. Non-native plant species are spreading quickly across the UK, displacing native species and detrimentally affecting the ecology of many vulnerable habitats.
The first step in overcoming this problem is to determine where these plants are. The PlantTracker app helps you to identify each species and submit sightings.
Visit the PlantTracker website or download ‘PlantTracker’ app from the iTunes App Store and Android Market.
We would love your feedback on how you find PlantTracker and on last month’s app Reverse the Odds, from Cancer Research as well. Please take two minutes to fill in the very simple online feedback form to tell us how you got on.
