About Hector

Hector is an easy to use elephant sighting mobile application that allows people who have sighted elephants to quickly and effectively log the sighting through an easy to use form.

Modern back-end analytics and the ability to export forms into pdf format allow for quick and useful analysis of the data captured by people participating in various projects around the world

Exciting incentives are aimed at people who have multiple interactive experiences with elephants outside of their protected environments and help researchers understand what is causing elephants to leave their protected areas as well as establish effective means of interventions used.
