Whale Alert

11/09/12  |  Posted by Vanesa Jeric  |  Posted in Digital Creativity

Whale Alert was formed as a group effort between 13 different organizations to help conserve one of the most endangered animals on the planet, the right whale. Their numbers have dropped to 350 to 550 remaining, and the death of a reproductive female would be disastrous to the dwindling population. The app does not give exact locations of the whales themselves which was thoughtfully considered to prevent humans from gaining further contact with the whales. The app receives data from acoustic buoys that pick up the sonar from whales, allowing the app to alert “areas to be avoided” and to slow speed to reduce the chance of an encounter. Recommended routes for safe travel are suggested, and a database of all whale management areas are given to raise awareness to travelers. Whale Alert is available for free in the iTunes Store.
