As part of the ongoing Macaque Awareness Programme, a new App on Gibraltar's Barbary Macaque has been launched by the Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, Dr. John Cortes.
The Gib Macaque App provides ample information on one of Gibraltar's flagship species such as the history of our Barbary Macaque, their ecology and behaviour as well as how people should behave around them to better co-exist. One of the innovative features included in the app is the integration of an Augmented Reality Macaque Quiz, allowing users to learn about our macaques through play.
Members of the public of all ages are encouraged to download the app and learn more about these fascinating animals, which are not only an asset, but also an inherent part of Gibraltarian culture. The Gib Macaque App is currently available on Android from the Google Play store and will shortly be available for iOS platforms from Apple's App Store.
For more information on how to play the game, please go to our Barbary Macaque App page.
