(The app works on iOS version 6 or later for iphone and version 4.0.3 or later for android OS phones. It is not available on Windows phones).
Mammal Tracker will help you identify which mammal species you have seen with photos, descriptions, sounds and annotated images of those that are often easily confused, as well as making it easy to submit the record to us. We ask that you try to get photos where possible as this helps with verifying the record but you can still submit records without photos.
