One of the greatest dangers to natural areas is the spread of invasive species. Now you can help invasive species experts protect our environment!
The What's Invasive! app displays local lists of top invasive plants and/or animals (with images and short descriptions to remind you of what they look like) that have been identified by National Park Service or other invasive management authorities. You can browse these lists of species and if you see one of them, then click the species name to send the GPS location to the experts. You can add a photo and text notes to your observation as well.
Visit http://whatsinvasive.com for more information or to set up your own site for invasive species data collection.
What's New in Version 3.0.4
- Added sorting by common and scientific names for species lists.
When using the app as "guest", the geo-location showed me as being over 5,000 miles from a park that is less than ten miles away. It also would not let me actually select that park and get to the main app screen, assuming it has one.... Total fail.
