The Loggerhead Shrike project croudsources tracking of the titular Loggerhead Shrike, an endangered North American bird species, using birdwatching citizens to record their sightings of the species.

The app was written during Ruby for Good 2016, a non-profit weekend of hacking for nonprofit organizations. Our project is written in Ruby on Rails and features a permission heirarchy to prevent amateur users from accessing the full sighting data, while still allowing them to contribute new sightings.
