The Field Guide can be used on tablets or phones, with information including pictures, calls, habitat maps and more on a wide variety of life found on the land, in the water and skies of South Australia.
Project Manager Alexis Tindall says that experts and volunteers have been supplying content for the museum’s app since the end of 2012.
“The South Australian Museum generates an extraordinary amount of expert, research and knowledge and we’re always looking for new ways to share this with the public. The app is a resource that people can use outside the Museum, which will enrich their knowledge of South Australian biodiversity,” Tindall said.
“We’re keen to keep updating this resource, so if users’ favourite species isn’t included, they should get in touch, and we can see if we can add it.”
The app was funded as part of the Federal Government’s Inspiring Australia Science Communication grants.
