New App Identifies Hundreds of BC Central Coast Species

Starzomski Lab New App

From seaweeds and sea stars to wolves and eagles, a new digital field guide provides experts and amateurs with a tool to identify over 700 species in the Great Bear Rainforest to help deepen our appreciation of the biodiversity along BC’s central coast. The guide for phone, computer and tablet is a collaborative project developed by UVic community ecologist and conservation biologist Brian Starzomski, with UVic graduate student Chanda Brietzke and UVic alumna Kelly Fretwell, as well as support from the Hakai Institute and involvement from its researchers.
