Kids play WILDLIFE DETECTIVE to learn about how foresters protect animals in the forest. State forests in New South Wales are harvested for timber for all kinds of wood products you find in your home and at school every day. But before Forests NSW harvests any trees our foresters check out the forest for all kinds of animals. Foresters take extra special care to protect any rare and endangered species. They look for day-time animals such as koalas and parrots, and night-time animals such as owls and possums. Foresters also look for animal clues such as feathers and burrows that tell them what animals might be living there.
Take the wildlife detective challenge today to see how many different animals and clues you can find!

Great little educational game
My kids (five and six) loved this and got really excited about each animal they found. Didn't realise at first that there was also animal clues to find, but that just added to the challenge. It not a game they will be playing for months. I'm really keen on my kids being aware of what's in their environment, particularly the forest and this is a great way to let them play on the ipad, but at the same time remind them about the environment they live in. It would be cool if you were able to brush ferns aside or sweep leaves away to find animals, maybe in a later version!?
