Support Forest Monitoring
We are hooked on apps. They are effective and efficient ways of collecting and obtaining data from the field in almost real time. We say almost real time because some areas of PNG do not have good internet connectivity so our staff have to wait until they are connected before their data from their phones is uploaded to our new Mother Nature portal.
We need support to:
- Purchase mobile phone data which is about $500 a month or $1,500 a month if we go with a satellite internet service provider. Big difference huh!
- Purchase more mobile phones so we can have more people out in the field collecting data. The Samsung galaxy phones we need are about $450 in PNG
- Pay for our online web hosting which is only about $100 per month.
More people looking means we have more chance of seeing the incredible wildlife that PNG has to offer so get behind this project and we will be sharing the photos via social media and our newsletter throughout the year.
The target is $52,000 per year.
