The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

MOBILE APP DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

Data Collection for Wildlife Conservation


The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a conservation organization for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.

We help create a tracking app for staff members to gather data on their daily ground and air patrols. The data helps in the safeguarding of the natural environment, anti-poaching, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, and rescuing animals especially, elephants and rhino orphans.

Easy User Interface for Pilots

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Aerial Unit conducts aerial surveillance throughout Tsavo East and West National Parks including the Chyulu Hills and Amboseli National Park, The Kibwezi Forest Reserve and many nearby group ranches. These regular aerial surveillances are vital to helping prevent elephant and rhino poaching and other illegal activities, whilst increasing security and capturing data.

The UI design of the app had to be easy for pilots when conducting low-level aerial monitoring and surveillance – simple enough to operate the app with one hand. Considerations like larger buttons and larger text, so they can quickly capture important information and go back to scanning the landscape.

Syncing Data

The data is stored locally on the device during an aerial or ground patrol. When connectivity is available, the device can be synced with the server and after completion, the data is removed from the device. Another great feature about the app is when a patrol starts, the app can track and draw your route, and drop pins on a map. All the map data is preloaded so no data service is required.
