With Animal Tracker, you can follow the movements of wild animals all over the world that are being tracked in near-real time! These movements are collected by tiny GPS tags carried by the animals and are stored at Movebank, a free online infrastructure used by hundreds of researchers to manage, share, analyze, and archive animal movement data. You can easily participate in our scientific research projects: Upload your real-life observations and photos of our tagged animals to Animal Tracker. Your observations are crucial for our scientists! We can determine the positions of the tagged animals but we are lacking behavioral observations - we can interpret our data much better with your additional observations. Therefore: become a scientist, become an Animal Tracker!

I don’t exactly know how to use this.

How do I use this? I am sort of confused. I can only see birds. I am trying to save the animals and I would love if you could make it so we can see other animals! But overall it is pretty good!

Calm down, grumpy reviewers. This is a great app.

It takes time to tag the animals. What are you doing to help with that effort? Birds happen to be the most interesting because they often travel great distances to surprising locations. I love the app because I learned about a bald eagle named Freedom who was born in captivity near me in NC and now flies 100s of miles up to nearly Canada. I’ve seen his parents who are still in a zoo. How cool. Suggestion: Find a favorite bird, save the bird as a favorite and watch his/her movements. Find a child to share your interest. Great app, great fun. Thank you to all the people who made and support this educational and fun app.
