Invasive species are a common problem throughout the Hawaiian Islands and have detrimental economic and environmental effects; one example is the coquí frog. This project provided the National Wildlife Research Center (NWRC) with resources, materials, and knowledge for expanding its citizen science outreach in invasive species management. We accomplished this by designing a mobile application to track occurrences of coquí frogs. To gather information, we conducted surveys and interviews with locals and experts. We then created a storyboard for a potential app and identified options to partner with other organizations. We recommended partnering with another organization that focuses on invasive species management in Hawai'i to develop the final app from the storyboards created.
