Opening the OUTDOOR section with QuestaGame
Play for biodiversity research and conservation

Contribute to biodiversity research and conservation.

QuestaGame takes you outdoors – to your backyard, a local park, a hiking trail, anywhere. See which birds, insects and other wildlife are more easily spotted in your location at the current time of year. All sightings are geo-tagged with location, date, time and submitted to your country’s national database so you are helping protect your region’s biodiversity while you play. More about the game
