Ontario Reptile and Amphibian Atlas app

Most people don’t carry their desktop computers into the field while looking for critters; that’s why we made an app.

What does it do?

Ontario Nature’s Reptile and Amphibian Atlas app identifies Ontario’s reptiles and amphibians, lets you submit sightings with ease and stores a record of your submissions.

The new app:

  • Identifies more than 50 species of reptiles and amphibians that can be found in Ontario.
  • Links to ontarionature.org/atlas to provide more information on species including colour photos, descriptions and range maps.
  • Uses your phone’s internal mapping software, camera and clock
  • Allows you to record sightings in less than 30 seconds without WiFi access

Where can I get the app?

You need to be connected to wifi to download the app.

The app is available for the iPhone and other Apple devices through the iTunes store for free. Note: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad.
