The app will help anglers in identifying and tracking endangered wild animal species.

A week after Cecil the beloved lion was brutally hunted down the US wildlife agency is taking measure. The US Fish and Wildlife agency announced it will soon be releasing an app. The app will help protect endangered animal species. The app will help anglers to identify endangered animals.

The app will also be instrumental in tracking the endangered species in the wild. The app will be created in collaboration with a Swedish company called FishBrain.

FishBrain has before released an app which helps people in fishing. The angler app can track weather, wind direction, water quality and other details. The new app will identify the species of fish and animal dwelling near water that are endangered.

The app can be used by anyone. Anyone can log in up to 50 different animal species at risk of extinction. The logging will help conservationists to determine where the endangered animals dwell.

The information will also be helpful to researchers studying extinction. According to FWS, a large number of endangered animals live near or around lakes.

Other habitats include streams, estuaries and other water bodies. The list by FWS contains all the endangered candidates under the Endangered Species Act. Names of species at risk of becoming endangered are also included in the list.

Endangered Species include Kemp’s ridley sea turtle, shortnose sturgeon and the whooping crane. The California red-legged frog is also at risk of extinction, according to Fortune.

Many anglers may seem to be the wrong choice for conserving fish. But recently anglers have been releasing their fish back into water to preserve the species. So anglers are also extremely important in protecting the aqua habitats.

The updated FishBrain app is now available on Apple Store and Google Play.
