The Wild Musick framework has been created to support the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (Tourism) NZ, Department of Conservation, Ministry of Conservation, and Ministry of Youth Development. It works to encourage the youth, and families in saving birds and conserving the biodiversity of New Zealand avian population. The solution offers the following direct use cases :
1. Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (Tourism)
a. Creation of new walking trails along areas of high bird density.
b. Promoting bird watching and bird sounding trips.
c. Aligning the tourism season with bird migration and seasonal population variation of birds.
d. Promoting bird watching as a sport.
e. Family trips encouraged to record bird sounds and feeding them to the Wild Musick web service.
2. Ministry of Conservation (Bio Conservation)
a. Pest population has an inverse relationship to the bird population in a geographic area. The Wild Musick framework can assist in decreasing the pest population in an area supporting other programs working in conjunction with saving birds.
b. Saving the avian population leads to the maintenance of the ecological balance in the Aotearoa region.
c. Identification of unusual birds migration in specific areas.
d. Identification of bird songs from bird calls and identifying the breeding season and perhaps preventing human intervention during the season.
e. Identifying bird’s behaviour based on their songs/calls.
f. Identify the population density of the endangered birds species.
3. Ministry of Youth Development
a. Identify the bird sounds in the wild on youth trips.
b. Respond to a bird call for help, if we can isolate the bird sound
c. Gamify the application and ask the youth (children as well as youth) when they go with
