To use the app you need an account on the Trap.NZ website which is a member of an existing project.

The Trap.NZ app works with the TrapNZ website and allows you to record trapping data on your phone. With it, you can plot traps, bait stations, monitoring stations, and bird count locations. You can also add records to installations (traps, stations and locations) when you are out in the field.
