And now a research team from Queensland University has developed an app that promotes international dialogue between scientists aiming to preserve endangered species of bird.

A move which allows users to see which foreign researchers they can contact to discuss conservation strategies.
Support that could be made available for other ‘transfrontier’ animals in future.
