WWF – Interactive guide in protected waters

Year: 2019–2020
Client: WWF

Rules and regulations a hundred times differently

When the popular recreational area became a protected territory, people had to restrict their behaviour for the benefit of the endangered fauna. Until lately, the locals as well as visitors were forced to follow a paper manual. The rules for sailing and fishing in designated areas change throughout the year making it difficult to keep up. Our task was to figure out a way to help people to get oriented better in the Rügen waters.


Interactive guide through the protected area

For the sailing, sports or fishing enthusiasts, we created an application that presents an overall view of the current occurrence of endangered species and connected restrictions. The interactive maritime map with a simple GPS navigation will lead the user through the whole area as well as offer information about rare kinds of fish and birds that live there. People can observe the local biodiversity from a safe distance without having to extensively research the route.

Endangered species protection? Mission accomplished

Greifwald Bodden is part of the Natura 2000 framework which serves the purpose of protection of most endangered fauna and flora on the territory of European Union. Our application for WWF helps to fulfil its mission to protect the biological diversity in selected areas. In 2019, those consisted of approximately 15 % of terrestrial and 45 % of the maritime area of Germany.

“The cooperation with Ackee was a great experience for us. The whole team was utmost professional and we are very satisfied with the final application.”
