"Animal Jam" is a free-to-play online game with optional paid memberships. The game allows players to adopt and customize virtual pets and use them to play games. The site also features a blog and chat. A paid membership grants access to a wider variety of pets and customization options, as well as members-only activities.
In addition to games, "Animal Jam" also offers downloadable and online educational tools. The "Animal Jam Academy" features videos about animals, printable activities, and coloring sheets. It also posts information about online safety and behavior. The site and chat are moderated for questionable content. As of 2015, the site meets the standards of the Children's Advertising Review Unit's Kid's Privacy Safe Harbor Program.
"Animal Jam" was created by WildWorks and the National Geographic Society.
