Animal stranding events can provide valuable information that helps in the conservation of marine species. The Vara2 Stranding App is a mobile phone application that helps professionals and the general public record information from such events in a standardised way.

Different versions of the app for Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and Oceania/Antarctica are now available on the Google Play Store. The app includes more than 150 species.

The objective is to connect professionals, emergency services or ordinary citizens so that if a stranding event is detected, it can be properly attended by qualified personnel in the shortest possible time.

Data collected through the app is available free to ALL those who wish to use it.
