The Daily Explorer's Animal Jam is a online playground for children who have a passion for animals and the outdoors. This online experience allows children to create and customize their own animal characters. From there, the players build a den, go on team adventures and chat with friends.
National Geographic partnered with the Wildworks to create Animal Jam. The objective of Animal Jam is to inspire children to learn more about the natural world. The game gives children the ability to learn fun facts, learn about Animal Conservation in Kimbara Outback and chat with scientists such as Dr. Brady Barr, who is a herpetologist. The game also teaches children how to collaborate and the skills needed to do so effectively.
Animal Jam is a free game to play; however, players have the option of purchasing a membership that provides additional game accessories such as animals, items and dens. Not all educational content requires a membership. The proceeds from the membership feature allow the game to remain free of advertising during play.
The chat and social networking features have moderators who help create a safe environment for children. The game provides educational resources to further advise children how to remain safe online.
