Spider Watch App is an initiative of Earthwatch Institute India and The Corbett Foundation to facilitate easy identification of some of the spiders in the field using mobile application.
Spiders are ubiquitous eight-legged arachnids found all around us, yet not much is known about them. This app showcases 50 common species of spiders found all around us, in our homes, gardens, and forests, to understand them for their intrinsic value to the natural ecosystem they are a part of. Spiders being carnivorous play a vital ecological role in controlling populations of pestiferous insects, such as mosquitoes. This app is for anyone curious about, and wants to be initiated in knowing the world of spiders.
