A must have!

This app is a must if you live in Florida! When you see a gopher tortoise, use this app to report it. This helps FWC ensure the gopher tortoise and its habitat stay safe. Simply fill out the quick questions and you can even include a pic if you snap one. There is also a cool interactive map that allows you to see the locations of all other sightings. Also has is a lot of important info about this animal. This app is fun and educational. Perfect for all year, but especially fun this summer when you don't have as much to do and have more time to spend outside. Great app. So fun. Now please make the exact same app for gators, bears, bobcats , and panthers. More like this are needed! Thanks!

Can't submit reports

No matter how many times I've tried, there is always a cryptic error when I try to submit a report, and there's no contact info to report the error to.
