The field guide was developed for the National Parks Conservation Association by eNature.com. At the heart of this mobile app is eNature’s comprehensive, geographically segmentable database of U.S. wildlife, both animals and plants.
eNature.com’s core content of wildlife information includes almost 6,000 individual species and is the same data set used to create the printed Audubon Field Guides. Data has been carefully reviewed and vetted by leading biologists, zoologists and other natural history specialists. eNature.com has consistently been one of the Internet’s most-visited sites for nature and wildlife information and has won numerous awards and accolades.
“With eNature’s unsurpassed wildlife content base, we are able to create a mobile app guide uniquely capable of targeting specific parks so users can quickly identify and enjoy the wildlife they come across,” stated Tom McGuire, eNature’s President.
