As the effects of climate change and habitat loss are seen increasingly around the world researchers and organizations need a way to connect with the general public. Mobile phone and social media use continues to increase and conservationists need to utilize these platforms in their efforts. For my capstone, I partnered with Key Conservation to add a researcher section to their mobile application. I spent the quarter speaking with researchers about what would make the app most useful for them and incorporated these ideas into new features on the mobile application. I also learned how to use Adobe XD and worked to make this part of the app fit within the platform that was already built. Through this mobile application, I hope that researchers are able to connect with people around the world who can offer help and solutions to the conservation issues we face.
