"Kurma" Mobile App 

#GS3 #Technology #Environment #Wildlife #Conservation 

  • Wildlife enthusiasts can now help scientists and conservationists by updating photos and information on turtles on the newly launched Kurma mobile application, launched on the occasion of World Turtle Day.  
  • The application will be made available on both Android and iOS platforms.  
  • This special turtle-tracking app will help in accurately identifying species and help in reporting turtle sightings, apart from enlisting the help of experts and local help centres. 
  • India has a rich turtle biodiversity. Unsustainable harvesting, illegal trade and habitat degradation, however, threaten turtles across the country.  
  • Only a few conservationists across the country work on turtle conservation, to make matters worse.
