on-farm 32 on-farm anew App produced by the Invasive Animals CRC will help woolgrowers combat Australia’s worst pest animals. The ‘Field Guide to Pest Animals of Australia’ App is the first of its kind in Australia, providing iPhone and iPad users with information about 31 of Australia’s worst pest animals including wild dogs, foxes, rabbits and feral pigs. Users who download the App can access the information in any location and at any time, making it a highly practical tool for use in the field. The App contains detailed species descriptions; photo galleries of animals, footprints, tracks and droppings; and audio calls – making it a lot easier to quickly identify pest animals in your local area. It also contains the PestSmart Toolkits, maps, control techniques and quick links to plenty of useful pest control resources for vertebrate pest species in Australia. The App will be useful for a range of stakeholders including farmers, land managers, Landcare groups, students, school teachers, universities, local councils, pest controllers, wildlife enthusiasts and the general public. The App can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple App Store. The App is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The Invasive Animals CRC is looking at developing an Android version in the near future. The App is already proving very popular, with more than 3000 people downloading the App within three weeks of it being released. The Invasive Animals CRC welcomes feedback from App users to make future versions of the App even more useful.
