Join a ClimateWatch quest!

 8 July 2014

QuestaBird is an outdoor adventure game where players compete by photographing birds, insects or other animals in the wild. Join quests, earn gold, buy virtual supplies, gain levels and build your collection while helping to document and protect Australia's biodiversity!

The sightings are verified and submitted to the Atlas of Living Australia, the national biodiversity database. There are over 2400 species of birds to look for, with the option of searching for over half a million animal species. You can take part in one of more than 20 quests, or set up your own for people to take part in.
