Along with The Nature Conservancy’s LEAF, Nature Rocks and Nature Works Everywhere programs, the organization’s work with Five Ravens on My Bird World further illustrates the Conservancy’s commitment to educating the next generation of conservationists.
My Bird World is produced by Five Ravens and The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and features four educational games with multiple levels that teach students about North American birds. The app features stunning images, real bird sounds and over 400 bird facts and now includes conservation facts provided by The Nature Conservancy. This app is used by educators and parents to increase a child’s love of birds and nature.
“In an effort to continue to expand The Nature Conservancy’s audience, we are excited to contribute to My Bird World,” said Geof Rochester, chief marketing officer of The Nature Conservancy. “Connecting children all over the world with nature through technology is important as we grow the next generation of conservationists.”
“We developed this game to make learning engaging and fun and we are thrilled to partner with The Nature Conservancy to enhance our popular games by teaching children the importance of conservation while increasing their bird knowledge,” said Wenda O’Reilly, president and co-founder of Five Ravens.
This wonderful conservation enhancement is free to all existing My Bird World and My Bird World HD users. A Lite version of both games is available as a free trial of the app. All are available on iTunes.
