TAKE THE CHALLENGE: ENDANGERED SPECIES

The Issue:

The interaction of animals with their environments is the engine that keeps the planet healthy for all of us. But for many species, time is running out as a result of risks due to habitat loss, illegal poaching, global warming and other threats.

National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore is on a mission to save species by documenting our planet’s biodiversity and finding innovative solutions to help save threatened species and protect their critical habitats. To date, he has documented over 8000 species, creating a visual archive of life on earth in an attempt to get people to care. His mission is to use photography to inspire people to take real-world action and help save species from extinction.

 

The Game Design Prompt:

Think of ways that humans can protect the endangered species in their communities. What can we do to reverse the effects of the extinction crisis? How can we use media (like photographs and games) to spread awareness about endangered species and incite people to take action? Create a game that focuses on preserving wildlife for the future and address the issue of endangered species.
