Wildlife Hero is a FREE mobile aplication



Invasive Species

There over 300 species classified as as invasive. In this section of the application yo find out who they are, the damage they cause and what methods are being made to eradicate them

Creating Action Areas

There are numerous organisations out there helping to control the spread of these pests - government departments, NGO’s, third party contractors, charities. Wouldn’t it be great if we could see all of these group’s actions on one map? Now creating a combined strategy is beyond the scope of this application but we can help a little by getting the action sites recorded and details of what they are doing.So if you are involved this is what you do

  • Register Your Organisation
  • Record the location of your action areas
  • Record the species you are trying to eradicate in these areas
  • Record how you are trying to eradicate.
  • Register Your Organisation
