Wildlife Crime App Development

Hi,

I'm currently working with U.S. Fish and Wildlife's Office of Law Enforcement on a project related to illegal wildlife trafficking and we have an idea for an app that will help curb illegal wildlife trade.  However, neither I nor the person I'm working with is tech savvy - can anyone offer any advice and/or resources in regards to developing apps? We have reached out to the local university's (University of Washington) Computer Science Department, and they said they may have some students interested in helping, however they need to know what the time committment would be, etc. (questions I do not have answers to).  Also, is there any hope in finding someone to develop an app for free or little pay? Are there grants available? 

 

Thanks! Rosemary
