Kermet, what type of frog are you?
A first of its kind, a new app released by Nokia will give users the chance find out more about the various types of frogs that inhabit the Colombian forest through an abundance of pictures and biographies.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature, IUCN, has developed their first joint effort with Nokia to develop the app called “Fantastic World of Frogs”. Users will be able to explore the world of frogs, which will help them understand the value of these amphibians with over 41 percent of the vertebrates edging closer to extinction, according to the IUCN red list of threatened species.
The goal of the app is to not only bring awareness to them but to also introduce people to thecolourful diversity of the Colombian frog species. Users can learn more about the conservation breakthroughs that the Save Our Species (SOS) are supporting, which are “protecting and restoring key sites for globally threatened amphibians”.
“We were the first company to join the SOS initiative. We believe that mobile applications offer a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness on environmental issues. This new app is a great way to teach people about the importance that frogs have in the ecosystem,” said Outi Mikkonen, Director and Stakeholder Engagement at Nokia.
Ready to download and available for use, find the app “Fantastic World of Frogs” in the Nokia store online.
