Schermprint van de app

Een nieuwe app voor de iPad en iPhone combineert wetenschap en technologie om bedreigde Noord-Atlantische walvissen, Noordkapers, te redden. De app doet dit door middel van het verminderen van botsingen tussen walvissen en grote schepen die langs de oostkust van Noord Amerika varen. De gratis ‘Walvis Alert’ app is het resultaat van de inspanning van een breed netwerk dat bestaat uit de overheid, universiteiten, de particuliere sector en het IFAW (www.ifaw.org).

Spotlight Kenya: Satellite-tagging Tsavo elephants to reduce conflict and boost

The Kenya Wildlife Service and the International Fund for Animal Welfare recently collared nine elephants--six males and three females--bringing the total of elephants being monitored in the vast Tsavo ecosystem to twelve. Their tracked movements will assist in mapping out elephant migratory corridors, effectively equipping the Parks’ management to take intervention measures to mitigate human-elephant conflict and mount security operations against poachers.
