In this update, many new photographs have been added (especially of birds), already reaching some 1550 among all the species included in Sparrou so that you can enjoy all the games and the cards of each species of bird, reptile or amphibian.
The goal is that at least each species has at least one image and one audio with its most characteristic sound on its file, and although there are still many to go... with your help we can achieve it 😀 Currently these are the numbers:
- 376 birds with at least one photo and 218 birds with audio, of the 638 bird species in Sparrou.
- 23 amphibians with at least one photo and 10 amphibians with audio, of the 25 species of amphibians in Sparrou.
- 49 reptiles with at least one photo and 0 reptiles with audio, of the 84 species of reptiles in Sparrou.
If you want to collaborate, HERE is the list with the photos that each species has and a button to send me your material.
New groups or listings created
➡️ Birds of the Balearic Islands
➡️ Herpetofauna of the Ter river promenade in Manlleu
Other details I would like you to read
Various errors have been fixed and the loading speed of the website and the app improved. It's complex stuff, but I keep testing and optimizing as much as I can. The project has grown a lot in terms of infrastructure too, and everything is managed by a single person, so if maintenance is not done and the code is continually reviewed, then serious problems arise 💥
Different groups have also been modified (both their species and the text of their description) as well as revised the translations of these groups in the 9 languages in which it is present Sparrou.
This is the first time I've commented on these details, but I spend far more time than I'd like each week on these types of tasks, which takes time away from creating new games and content. But a sparrow only has 2 wings 🙁
Several ways to collaborate
If you would like to collaborate with Sparrou and support the project, the easiest way is with your usual online purchases. I will receive a commission at no extra cost to you than the price you would normally pay. All information here: https://sparrou.net/colaborar/
I am also looking for help to include all the mammals that are in the Iberian Peninsula in Sparrou. And for this I need a list in excel/spreadsheet format of all the species in different languages. If you want to help, get in touch and I give you more details.
lastly enjoy Sparrou and don't forget to share it in your circles to give away environmental education. Thank you for creating a more nature-conscious world! 💚
