It covers 150 different species, with a flash card on each one that includes a photo, fact files and information on why the animal is endangered and what is being done to save it.

The app includes four whale and dolphin species (beluga,blue whale, bottlenose dolphin and humpback whale) and each has a link to the WDCS website so you can find out all you want to know!
