Customize Your Scuba Diving Excursion and Track Wildlife with New App Scuba Calendar – Available Now on the App Store
September 15, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsPlan the perfect scuba diving vacation with the unique new app Scuba Calendar! This one-of-a-kind iOS app helps users create a custom travel itinerary based on the marine wildlife they want to see at the specific time of year. The app then determines the geographic locations where the chosen marine life is most likely to be spotted. Besides being a powerful tool for trip planning, Scuba Calendar inspires a spirit of conservation by including interesting information and facts about each animal. This includes each animals' status under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and its classification under CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). Scuba Calendar is available for download on the App Store.
In addition to creating customized scuba trips, Scuba Calendar serves as a social platform for divers all around the world to contribute as citizen scientists. They can report on their own sightings, share photos and log the environmental situation of the dive site (such as marine debris, corals in distress, etc.) for collective data purposes. The Scuba Calendar app was developed by a husband and wife team who are passionate about scuba diving, traveling and environmental conservation. They want to share that enthusiasm with other divers whether novice or advanced.
"Our years of trip planning and first-hand experiences in the scuba world contributed to creating Scuba Calendar," explains Katarina Grgas Brus, co-developer of Scuba Calendar. "So many people may have their dream vacation in mind but not have the logistical data available to determine just where and when the ideal conditions are."
Scuba Calendar includes over 400 locations across 70 countries and over 30 popular marine species. Once a country is selected, the Country Page shows types and locations of other marine life likely to be spotted in that country. It also includes valuable information like local diving regulations, environmental sustainability recommendations, hyperbaric chambers and typical weather conditions for specific times of the year.
