Live Game Sightings on Google Maps
Kruger Live is a live game sightings map of Kruger Park in South Africa.
The sightings on the map are generated by park users with the Kruger Park iOS and Android app. As well as reporting live game the app's users can report suspicious activity, such as poaching, including a photo and exact location. This information is then shared with wildlife protection agencies in the park.
All the data gathered by users and shown on the map is shared with the Endangered Wildlife Trust and the University of Cape Town's Zoology Department to track dispersal and the population densities of rare predators.
