The Team WILD game is a fun and unique way to engage students, by turning scientists into superheroes!   Andrea Small, with, tells us: "From jungle to savanna, rainforest to coral reef, the Team WILD game will test students on their speed, skill and coordination.  As they play, students will discover a diverse range of field tasks a conservation scientist of ecologist must do in order to protect the world's species and habitats -- from replanting native guapuruvu trees in the Atlantic forest of Brazil to evacuating non-infected mountain chickens (a frog) from Montserrat where populations are being decimated by the deadly chytrid fungus.

Team WILD is also supported by curriculum-linked teaching resources, topic pages linked to the game content and discussion points, encouraging students and teachers to continue their learning journeys by exploring the topics touched upon in the game."  

Wildscreen USA is proud to be spearheading U.S. efforts in support of the ARKive project - the Noah's Ark for the internet era.  ARKive is a unique global initiative, gathering together the very best films and photographs of the world's species into one centralized digital library to create a freely-accessible, audio-visual record of life on Earth.
