Disney is gearing up for Earth Day with its upcoming launch of Facebook game Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers, which it described as an “ecologically minded social game.”
Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers is based on scenes and locations from the Disney Animal Kingdom theme park, and the park’s scientists participated in its creation to ensure that its content stayed true to the environment.
Players will join the Global Wildlife Research team, learn about rare and endangered species, and build virtual preserves to house and protect animals and plants from around the globe, and placing animals that cohabitate well next to each other will result in extra points.
Disney said Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers marks its first Facebook game to feature animals. Earth Day is April 22.
