Protecting the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef - One App at a Time

June 8, 2017

One of the best parts about working in such a proactive company like Axway is that I get to see exciting, transformative projects take flight. Sometimes in ways that I could never have even imagined.

Take, for example, the efforts being realized with our partner, Shockoe, in developing an app they released this week for Roatan Marine Park. The app, called RMP iPatrol, is designed to help locals and patrol agents protect the Mesoamerican reef surrounding Roatán and the Bay Islands in Honduras. It is the second largest reef in the world after the Great Barrier Reef.

Just in time for World Oceans Day, everyday visitors to this spectacular reef can now report on environmental discoveries and unusual activity in order to help sustain and protect it in its natural form. Since the Roatán Marine Park employs only a small workforce, having extra eyes on the ground will serve a great benefit with inspecting and reporting cases.

The app was built pro bono for the Roatán Marine Park. Along with reporting boating, poaching and environmental concerns, users can take and send photos and videos while marking the location via GPS. Axway supported Shockoe’s application creation for this wonderful environmental landmark by providing Axway app development and API management capabilities.

I love to see imagination take shape and create projects like these that lift not only the communities of the world we live in, but also the people in which they serve. Now, where’s my scuba gear?
