Putting the High Seas in the palm of your hand: Sargasso Sea iPhone app launched

Conserving the Sargasso Sea is the first-ever iPhone app developed for a proposal to protect a high seas marine area.

The app offers a map of the Study Area, nine reasons why the area should be protected (and associated images), recent news updates and links to more information about project partners and relevant international organizations. The app was developed for the general public, to educate users about the importance of the Sargasso Sea and to share information on a proposal to protect a high seas marine area in a mobile and easily portable format. Click here for free download from the iTunes store.

 Special thanks to our developer Andy Jeffrey and to Prof. Dan Laffoley for overall guidance.
