Coastal conservation and action around the planets Mangrove Forests

Mapping the Mangroves:

 

 

Download the app

The Mapping the Mangroves app is free and works on both iOS and Android tablets and phones.  It can be downloaded from the iTunes store or Google Play store.

 

 

Describe what you see

Each report made with the MTM app is for a single organism.  Fill out the report with as much info as you can.  The reports don’t have to be complete to be submitted.  You can fill out reports for plants or animals in the mangroves that you visit.  The idea is to collect and describe as much information as possible.

 

 

Capture photos or videos

MTM also lets you include photos or videos with your reports.  This feature lets others be at the mangroves with you.  Be sure that your images are in focus and clear before you publish them.

 

 

Upload & Share your observations

The MTM app uploads all of your reports to the MTM website.  If you have an Internet connection while you are at the mangroves, then your reports can be automatically uploaded.  If you don’t have an Internet connection, your reports will be stored on your device and automatically uploaded.
