Whale Alert app voor iPad wereldwijd groot in het nieuws

Twee weken geleden onthulde het IFAW in samenwerking met onze partners een nieuwe app voor iPad en iPhone, waarmee schepen op de vaarroutes langs de oostkust van de VS een bijdrage kunnen leveren aan de bescherming van bedreigde noordkapers tegen botsingen met grote schepen. We waren allemaal enthousiast dat we deze geweldige doorbraak op onze persconferentie in Boston konden laten zien en delen. Maar we hadden niet verwacht dat het verhaal over onze walvis-app zoveel media-aandacht zou trekken! Via kranten, internet, televisie en radio werd onze walvis-app wereldnieuws.

Via de nieuwe Whale Alert app, die gratis kan worden gedownload in de iTunes store, ontvangen schepen actuele informatie die zij kunnen gebruiken om aanvaringen met walvissen te voorkomen. Dit eenvoudige verhaal nam al snel even grote vormen aan als de zeezoogdieren zelf waarvoor het IFAW zich inzet. Dankzij een andere fantastische technologische vinding van onze vrienden van 'Storify', kunnen we een deel van de berichten van de afgelopen 14 dagen in één oogopslag laten zien.

Volgende week komt het IFAW in Washington met nog meer geweldig nieuws voor de walvissen. Blijf de berichten volgen. Bedankt voor uw steun aan onze organisatie en ons werk voor de walvissen. Samen kunnen we ze redden!

Met veel dank,
