Yellowstone Wolves 2020 celebrates the 25th year since the wolves were reintroduced into Yellowstone NP in 1995. In those 25 years, there has been a tradition of an annual chart giving a snapshot of the wolves in the Park. This app brings the content of the 2020 chart to mobile device users. $1 from each app sold is donated directly to the Yellowstone Wolf Project.
The app provides a map showing the locations of the packs throughout the Park. The user can touch the icon at the top right of the screen to see statistics of the content of the app. The map can be zoomed & panned. The user can either touch one of the pack territories to see the information for that pack or touch the Details icon at the bottom of the screen to see information for all packs.
The Details screen shows the pack information at the top & information about the wolves at the bottom; both of which can be paged. The user can get statistics about the pack & a legend by touching the top right icon.
The Search function allows the user to select criteria to see a specific set of packs & wolves in the Details screen. The user can touch the middle icon at the top of the Details screen to see statistics of the selected set of packs & wolves. For example, the user could search for all collared wolves or all wolves with a specific coat color.
Other material contained on the chart is in the About section of the app. This includes explanations, descriptions, legends & contact information. For example, the user can get information on how to identify packs and what coat colors are for each wolf. The user can find out how to be a part of the wolf restoration managed by the Yellowstone Wolf Project. This section also contains information about the Yellowstone Wolf Family Tree, a collection of the previous years' charts & the current year's plastic-laminated wolf chart.
