Naturalist app and EuroBird portal
In 2017, Biom Association established a faunistic online database into which observations of birds and other animal can be entered. Using the NaturaList application data can be entered while in the field and entries can be viewed through the fauna.hr portal. You can download the NaturaList Android app here.
In April 2019, a new version of EuroBirdPortal here you can monitor movements of more than 105 bird and other animal species in Europe in real time, was released. Year after year, the number of associates on these portals has been on a steady increase and this year there were 20 957 active watchers (out of 80 000 registered ones) on the national level. That is a lot, but it is still unfortunately not enough to ensure adequate coverage of Croatia in terms of monitoring and collecting data.
