Use Wildlife Management

The Wildlife Management solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you capture wildlife observations, monitor wildlife populations, and analyze trends within protected areas.

In this topic, you’ll learn how to use the solution by assuming the role of a user and performing the workflows below.

Collect wildlife observations

The Rapid Wildlife Reporter can be used to quickly capture wildlife observations in the field using a simple big button interface. The Wildlife Observation Reporter can be used to capture detailed wildlife counts, the health of observed animals, and photos of the observation. Both can be used on a mobile device in a connected or disconnected environment.
