How can people’s whale watching experience be better than it already is?

The National Parks of NSW (NPWS) partnered with Mobiddiction to find new ways to innovate their functionalities so everyone can engage in the fun of whale watching throughout the season.

“Everyone is busy engaging with their phones and computers so we thought,
why not create an app that gives people the opportunity to connect with wildlife
and nature? We can bring them closer to the whale-watching experience.”

Insights

Whale watching is a favourite pastime for all the nature lovers down here in New South Wales, due to the heavy migration of the Antarctic whales during that time of the year. Looking up sightings and spots can be very tedious. But now enthusiasts can sit back and have all the information they need ready at their fingertips.
