Zealandia Bird Card GameSubmitted by Ingrid Hutzler on Wed, 21/06/2017 - 15:42
Thanks to the Birds NZ Project Assistance fund, around 4,800 students from over 150 schools around Aotearoa have been exposed to birds through the ZEALANDIA Trading card game!
The project ran over three months and the funding enabled 15,000 cards to be printed. Due to the success ZEALANDIA will continue to make the game available for free to schools around Aotearoa.
The cards use learning through play, collectability and competition to make NZ birds fun and memorable. The resource has shown a great increase in bird id and awareness over a short time period.
