In 2021 First Line Software became an official partner of the Blijdorp Zoo and helped to save two Amur leopards. Due to habitat loss and poaching, the Amur leopard is critically endangered — only 84 individuals are thought to exist.
Rotterdam Zoo Blijdorp is located in the northwestern part of Rotterdam. It is one of the oldest zoos in the Netherlands. Divided into several zoogeographic regions, the 26-hectare (64.25-acre) Zoo boasts well over 180 species. The zoo is a member of the Dutch Zoo Federation (NVD) and the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA).
In 2021 our company has also adopted two meerkats at ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo in the Netherlands! We strongly believe that adopting animals is a great way to support Amsterdam's Zoo and help to protect and care for its animals. First Line Software supports ARTIS and its initiatives for animal care, nature and environmental education, international breeding and reintroduction programs, and nature conservation. We love our planet, so we have made use of this unique opportunity to support ARTIS and its lovely inhabitants and that’s why we want to share this partnership with you!

Video guide brings museum experience to life
Museums are continuously focused on attracting more visitors by expanding the accessibility of their exhibits and programs. Technology has been proven to be an effective tool for creating interactive learning programs and making them accessible to a broader audience.
Representatives from The State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, approached First Line Software about an idea they had for an alternative to their existing audio tour – to accommodate hearing-impaired visitors. They wanted to create a mobile app for a video guide that uses sign language to communicate exhibit details.
Without this digital communication vehicle, hearing-impaired museum visitors would be limited to walking through the exhibits and reading signage that provides basic details compared to an audio tour. Or, they might simply forego visiting a museum rather than endure a subpar experience. First Line built a mobile platform to host and implement the museum video guide – at no charge - for The State Russian Museum. This platform available at no charge to other museums.
The mobile video guide platform for museums can be customized by First Line. Once requirements are provided we will prepare a project proposal for consideration. Contact us today to learn more about how your museum can benefit from implementing the platform to publish your video content and interactive programs.
