Volunteer ecologists who help keep watch over the Ottawa River have started using a locally developed app to record and share their observations in a central database.

The app, developed by Ottawa-based non-profit Water Rangers, allows anyone with a smartphone to submit measurements such as water temperature, as well as observations about pollution, wildlife sightings and invasive species.
