Condor Country, a new mobile game, allows players to experience what it’s like to save an endangered species, based on real-life conservation practices used by the California Condor Recovery Program.
Released for Android and iOS devices on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, the game simulates the actual activities of zookeepers and field biologists who are on the frontlines to help save this federally endangered species from extinction. Gamers will have eggs to hatch, chicks to release into the wild, and a flock of condors to monitor for real health threats including lead poisoning.
Developed through a collaboration of the Santa Barbara Zoo, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), and Cerberus Interactive, Condor Country is free to download for both Android and IOS; visit www.condorcountrygame.com for more information.
