The Mammalz App is now available for free on the App Store and as a web platform, for this generation to live stream its nature experience.
The Mammalz iOS mobile app and web platform give people around the globe an innovative, highly interactive way to connect to nature and socialize while social distancing.
The community-driven, user-generated content platform for all things nature, Mammalz, is now available on the App Store.
This free app offers a centralized place for today’s generation of socially savvy nature content creators, scientists and consumers to connect with each other and create a global community around anything that advances the human-nature relationship.
Mammalz supports live streaming, video, photos, 360/VR, and podcasts. The app goes way beyond the “like” button, with engagement tools like live stream chat, comments, direct chat, and discussion boards, all designed to help people socialize, even when times like this require social distancing.
Now sharing on Mammalz
The global community on Mammalz is growing fast, and so is the variety and diversity of entertaining and educational nature content being uploaded every day.
Live streamers take viewers along on their hikes, and answer questions about the birds and plants they encounter. A zookeeper hosts regular AMA (ask me anything) sessions via live stream. Creators inspired by Steve Irwin upload films to educate and entertain about the natural world. Science communicators take viewers into the field to demonstrate proper field biology techniques. Filmmakers around the world share documentaries about anything from conservation science, to wild harvesting a gourmet meal from the land. Behind the scenes videos and outtakes bring viewers even closer to the action and into the in-the-know fold. Wildlife and landscape photographers share their best work, along with stories about getting the shot.
Throughout the Mammalz community, a high level of engagement between creators and their audiences is evidence of how much fun people are having while learning about the natural world.
Global pandemic spotlights need to understand, respect, and connect with nature
As it becomes more clear than ever from scientists that a disregard for nature, and lack of understanding about how humans fit into nature, has landed us in the current pandemic crisis, the app’s launch is even more timely and poignant.
“The natural world is struggling with more human-inflicted chaos than ever before. Extinction rates are soaring, and the clock is ticking,” says Alex Finden, Mammalz’s co-Founder and COO.
The good news is that by simply using Mammalz, people can immediately begin to discover inspiring nature stories, unleash their creativity to share their own perspective about the natural world, and connect with a global community who loves nature as much as they do.
“Fortunately, there are millions of young people, scientists, storytellers and nature fanatics who care, including us, but we haven’t had an effective platform to communicate with until now. We are Mammalz, and we’re on a mission to advance the relationship between humans and the natural world in the funnest way possible.”
A mission to create champions for the natural world
Mammalz’s mission is to promote a greater global understanding of nature and the environment while acting as a bridge between science, media makers, and the public.
As the highly engaged Mammalz community grows, the company intends to incorporate creative solutions to solve nature’s greatest problems.
With recent innovation in data science, creating an augmented experience of nature that emphasizes education and promotes real-life engagement will become a reality. The vast amount of encrypted multimedia data will also allow Mammalz to accelerate the rate at which conservation scientists can decode, track, and put a stop to wildlife trafficking.
“More than ever, we need a safe place where we can be inspired by nature, a trusted place to communicate and interact with one another while sharing truthful, scientifically accurate information,” says Rob Whitehair, Mammalz co-Founder and CEO.
“We need to hear from diverse perspectives around the globe to widen the understanding of what nature means to the global community. This will help us gain not only more knowledge and understanding of life on Earth, but more compassion and empathy for our fellow humans.”
