WHAT'S TO COME

  

HERE AT CRITTERFACTS, WE HAVE A BROAD VISION FOR WHAT WE AND YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH. TOGETHER, WE CAN INSPIRE WONDER AND APPRECIATION FOR THE CRITTERS WE SHARE OUR PLANET WITH.

   

SO LET’S ASK OURSELVES……

  

WHAT IF.....

BY SHARING A SINGLE PHOTO, YOU COULD SPREAD KNOWLEDGE AND HELP SAVE A SPECIES ON THE BRINK OF EXTINCTION?

 

 

WHAT IF.....

BY EXPLORING THE WORLD, YOU COULD HELP REGIONS, SUCH AS THE VILLAGE OF LAMAKERA IN INDONESIA TRANSITION FROM A MASS HUNTING ECONOMY TO A SANCTUARY AND TOURISM ECONOMY PROMOTING THE EXPANSION OF ENDANGERED SPECIES AND CREATING ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY FOR THE REGION?

  

 

WHAT IF.....

IT WAS EASY FOR PEOPLE TO COME TOGETHER TO ENJOY EXPERIENCING, SHARING, AND DISCOVERING WILDLIFE AND THE PEOPLE AND TECHNOLOGY BEHIND PRESERVING THEM?

  

 

OR WHAT IF.....

THERE WAS A PLATFORM WHERE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD COULD COME TOGETHER AND ENJOY DISCOVERING WILDLIFE AND WHERE EVERY MOMENT AND ACTION THEY SPENT DOING SO MATTERED AND HELPED MAKE OUR WORLD A BETTER PLACE?

  

WITH YOUR HELP, THIS IS WHAT CRITTERFACTS WILL BE. CRITTERFACTS IS MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER APP, IT IS A WORLDWIDE MOVEMENT SPREADING WONDER, EXPLORATION, COMMUNITY, AND INSPIRING LOVE AND APPRECIATION FOR WILDLIFE AND THE WORLD AROUND US. 

  

BELOW ARE SOME OF THE UPCOMING FEATURES BEING ADDED TO CRITTERFACTS THAT WILL HELP US ACCOMPLISH THIS:

CRITTERWATCH

 

  

IMAGINE DRIVING ON THE ROAD AND  A DEER DARTS OUT IN FRONT OF YOU. YOU HIT YOUR BRAKES AND NEARLY MISS HITTING THE DEER. YOU HAVE NOTICED OVER TIME THAT DEER ARE FREQUENT ON THIS ROAD AND DO YOUR BEST TO WARN OTHERS.

 

NOW WHAT IF...... 

YOU AND OTHER DRIVERS HAD A WAY OF NOTIFYING EACH OTHER OF DEER AND OTHER WILDLIFE IN THE AREA TO HELP AVOID A COLLISION?

  

THIS IS ONE EXAMPLE OF WHAT THE CRITTERWATCH PORTION OF THE CRITTERFACTS APP WILL BE. CRITTERWATCH WILL BE AN ADD-ON FEATURE THAT USERS OF THE CRITTERFACTS APP CAN ENABLE.

  

INSPIRED BY CITIZEN SCIENCE AND DATA COLLECTION FROM EVERYDAY PEOPLE, USERS OF THIS FEATURE CAN TRACK AND NOTIFY OTHERS OF WILDLIFE POPULATIONS IN THEIR AREA, HELP FIGHT POACHING, HELP DESIGNATE NEW PROTECTED AREAS, SEE WHAT AREAS IN NATIONAL PARKS HAVE MORE FREQUENT WILDLIFE ACTIVITY, AND AS MEMBERS OF THE EXPLORER'S CLUB, HAVE CERTAIN ACTIVITIES UPDATED AUTOMATICALLY VS. RELYING ON MANUAL ENTRY.

  

THE CRITTERWATCH FEATURE AIMS TO RAISE AWARENESS TO THE WILDLIFE AROUND US, PROTECT WILDLIFE FROM ILLEGAL POACHING, AND TO AID IN WILDLIFE AND TRAVELER SAFETY.
