The app that's saving our native birds

25/09/2017

25 million native birds are killed every year by pests and currently 80% of our native species are in trouble - with Squawk Squad you can defend our native birds with a swipe of your thumb. 

Fraser McConnell is the co-founder and team leader for Squawk Squad, which is a social enterprise that aims to connect and engage New Zealanders in the protection and growth of our native bird life through the Squawk Squad app. Invest in a sensor-connected trap in aid of sanctuary projects, and get notified in real-time when your trap activates.

They’ve just posted a video on Facebook, launching a free education package for teachers to use in classrooms for NZ Conservation Week
