Marine biodiversity loss has become one of the environmental concerns over the past centuries even up to now. We actually don’t have to further put the lives of the sea creatures into peril nor cause massive extinctions. Right at our fingertips, we can do our part.
World Wide Fund for Nature-Philippines (WWF-Philippines) in cooperation with AppLabs Digital Studios Inc. (ADSI) made a tap and swipe mobile application for users to virtually save and protect sea creatures from a barrage of threats.
Dubbed as EnviroPop, this time-pressured puzzle game features adorable sea creatures including Clara the clown fish, Gray the groupers, Pattie the pawikans (sea turtle), Doogie the dugong, Dolly the dolphin, and of course Chi-Chi the panda—WWF’s most recognized mascot. Basically, it is an easy peasy 1-minute game where you rescue a bunch of sea creatures by tapping 3 or more of the same hazards (rawl nets, cyanide bottles, oil drums, PET bottles, oil drums, and dynamites) out of the grid and swiping them away. You can earn 5 times your usual score when you zap out a row of hazards beside the Chi-Chi (panda) icon. Additionally, it includes Enviropedia where users can access facts about the pesky materials and the endangered sea creatures.
Our lives are inextricably linked with the marine biodiversity and through this app, we can chip in to the marine conservation fund of WWF by availing the EnviroPop app for $0.99. For more information, visit http://www.applabsdigital.com/ or http://enviropopapp.com/
