Artisanal fisheries that support hundreds of millions of people worldwide are in danger of collapse. But by placing key data in the hands of coastal communities, smartphones can transform management, rebuild stocks, and encourage everyone to become part of the solution. 

In this interactive and practical session, you'll get to play 21st century conservationists, and learn how smartphones are helping to save tropical seas. Accompanied by Blue Ventures scientists, you'll find, photograph and collect basic information about some of the zoo's animals. After you've collected your data, you'll watch as it is visualised in real-time on an interactive data dashboard. Finally, you'll also get the chance to ask Blue Ventures' scientists anything you like!
