The Caledonian Ornithology Society is pleased to announce the launch of the OrnitO (Ornithology in Oceania) application.
Designed to make easier the visual identification of birds in the South Pacific, this application presents 201 species of birds including the birds of New Caledonia, Fiji, Vanuatu, Wallis and Futuna.
Intended for the general public, it is richly illustrated and easy to use. Downloaded on smartphone, it is a complete ornithological guide, practical to use in the field which allows the species observed to be checked.
To promote the exchange and sharing of knowledge about birds, it presents the name of each species in several languages (English, French, Japanese, Chinese, Czech) and traditional dialects.
A beautiful showcase of the ornithological and linguistic diversity of Oceania !
To find out more, the best thing is to try it right now ! It is available for free (for Android only) on Play Store or via the following link : OrnitO.
