Indispensable for conservation

I work and volunteer for a zoo, which means guests look to me for information about the species they see.

This app is so beautiful and full of facts, which makes learning a pleasure. It’s been running smoothly, hasn’t crashed or glitched.

I expect to begin carrying along my iPad and share with zoo visitors, hoping the visuals will draw guests to care even more about endangered species and the global environment.

From a passionate conservationist, thank you for creating this app. Love it.

Flexible, informative, diverse and inclusive. This program can be used in multiple aspects from K to 16. As a tool it has a lot of flexibility for use in the home or in the classroom. I'm thinking of how it can be used with my grandchildren as well as in my undergraduate classes. I am sure that in the future you will see varied lesson plans being derived from BioInteractive on the use of this too. Until then explore, and suggest ideas to BioInteractive on the use of BiomeViewer.
