NOAA - Comes up with 2nd Interactive Game to bring Awareness to Saving the Sea Turtle

"WaterLife, Sea Turtles and the Quest to Nest" Save the Turtles! In cooperation of the U.S. Fisheries Service, the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Under the US Department of Commerce, these agencies have created an interactive game that explains the importance of Sea Turtles. This animated and fun series of games is aimed at 4th - 7th grade students. These games are a part of an overall strategy to encourage an interest in Science, Technology and the Environment.

In this game, players travel to a virtual seaside town located in the Southeastern U.S. There are six Stakeholders*, whose participation are very important to protecting and rebuilding the Loggerhead Sea Turtle. 

*... a Stakeholder? A stakeholder is a person, group of people or organization who each hold an important and vital role in making sure there is success in a project or cause.

 The Loggerhead Sea Turtle, is listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Players travel through a series of mini-games from the beach cleanup, to clearing a safe path for nesting turtles, to a food chain version of Sudoku. All of this is designed to improve the likelihood of survival of the loggerhead turtle.

To succeed, players must understand human actions affecting loggerheads and what people can do to improve the chance for survival of the species, both on land and in the ocean. This is the second game published by NOAA, the first game; "Where Rivers Meet the Sea" is the first game. I have put a link at the bottom of the page for each free game.

Thank you for your Public Service. Thank you for every "one thing" you do to enhance and protect the Environment. Thank you for taking a risk to tell the Truth. Peace.
