LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) - Visitors, volunteers and staff are helping Colorado Parks and Wildlife track wildlife in state parks with a mobile application.

The Loveland Daily Reporter-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1Wm6Egn ) that the free smartphone app iNaturalist launched in mid-July and since then hundreds of observations have been entered into the State Parks NatureFinder project.

The app allows users to post photos, sounds and observations about park wildlife. A crowdsourced identification system helps users identify the exact species they have seen.

The NatureFinder project allows Parks and Wildlife to track species presence, numbers, and animal activity and to see which species use the different habitats within the parks.
