WildObs Lookout is the latest iphone application to join the WildObs family of wildlife iphone applications. Lookout allows you to find nature around you (to “keep a lookout”) and get some ideas of what wildlife you could experience. Let crowd-sourcing help you get away from the crowds and experiencing nature…

Are you visiting a park for the first time, are you looking for something new around you? Do you have an itch to experience something new? Let the many amazing wildlife observers in the wildobs community lead you to nature. See what others are seeing, and tune in to the wildlife around you:

  • Lookout is location based, it shows you encounters around where you are.
  • Dive into each encounter:
    • Map the encounters, include your current location, launch Google maps for driving directions.
    • Expand photographs for greater detail.
    • Explore the species (locally, on wildobs and on the Internet w/ NWF.org and Wikipedia.)
    • Find more local encounters for the species.
  • Browse community encounters:
No WildObs account is required, and there is no requirement to record wildlife yourself. However, with a WildObs account you can also:
