We're Live!

Thanks to WWF and a lot of hard work from a lot of people, we now have real-time, uplinked water quality and discharge information available for the Mara River, just near the boundaries of Kenya/Tanzania, and the Maasai Mara National Reserve/Serengeti National Park. This is something we have dreamed about ever since starting to work here in the Mara, and it's been such an amazing note upon which to end this field season. Not only will this allow us to stay in touch with the river from anywhere and track interesting events as they happen, but also it will allow us to better communicate the current state of the river to others. Right now, the data isn't publicly available, but WWF is working on a web-based interface to make it readily available in real-time to anyone in the world. We are so excited for all the opportunities this will open. Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen!
