The whole preface behind Habitat is to connect kids with nature, giving them real life challenges and experiences. It really builds a desire and a passion for being outside, teaching them about the environment and how their real life actions have impacts on the world in which we live.

The game is centered around a virtual polar bear. In order to keep the polar bear happy and healthy, kids need to complete real life actions by visiting designated nature locations. It’s perfect for kids aged 7-12 years, not only is it fun but it teaches kids ecologically sustainable habits that are both educational and empowering.

Kids will really love this game because they feel they are helping to make a difference by reducing their own footprint on the world!

Parents can get involved and will love it too because their kids will want to get out and about, exploring, discovering and playing in nature, rather than sitting at home or in the car on devices.
