We’ve been working with World Resources Institute to build a mobile application that gives power to the people on the frontline of forest protection. Delivering near real-time deforestation alerts, fire alerts, and annual tree cover loss data—even when internet connectivity is poor or non-existent—Forest Watcher can be used offline to access information, verify forest loss alerts, and collect evidence of illegal logging activity.

Powered by Global Forest Watch, the Forest Watcher mobile app is open source, free to use, and global in scope. Available for both Android and iOS operating systems, Forest Watcher puts everything a team needs to detect, verify and report forest loss onto one device that can be carried into the forest.
