The 'MoGO Oil Spill Effected Wildlife' app can turn citizens into assistants for rescue workers. MoGO is short for Mobile Gulf Observatory and the app allows users to take photos of effected wildlife, tar balls and oil slicks. Once taken they can upload them into the database and the location of the photo is pinpointed so rescue workers can swoop in.

Now citizens in the Gulf of Mexico who feel worthless in the situation have the ability to help by just taking a photo. The MoGO Oil Spill Effected Wildlife app also encourages that citizens also report their findings to the hotline.
