Day 28: WWF Forest
A few years ago, the WWF Free Rivers app was released to explore flowing rivers and how to show the effects on wildlife and people. The latest WWF app was released a few months ago with a focus on forests. The goal is to educate the user on how a healthy forest benefits people and wildlife. You may be surprised to learn that this app was created by Assemblr.
In a guided tour, discover the healthy forest as it appears around you. Turn your classroom (or home) into a thriving forest to explore. The animals jump around the room and rain is often heard trickling or pouring down. In the journey, you’ll learn what it takes to preserve a vibrant forest while uncovering how these forests are threatened. Finish the journey by building your own beautiful forest.
