This is a fabulous app!
You can see that so much work has gone into it and it is jam-packed with all the information you need.
It is such a pity that so many people feel only fear and repulsion over these beautiful and fascinating creatures.
Well done!

Searching the Map

A very nice and educational app. The only problem is you cannot search for a place on the maps, instead you have to try and locate it .... a search function would be useful. Overall a wonderful app!
