My Conservation Park
A Facebook game that’s actually Good for Something:
MyConservationPark links virtual parks to those in the real world
Fort Lauderdale, Florida and New York, New York, (June 23, 2011) – Good World Games and Orangutan Outreach are excited to announce their partnership in MyConservationPark’s orangutan mission, a fun, new Facebook game that allows players to manage their own Orangutan Park while helping to save orangutans in the real world.
There’s an abundance of online social games at present but how many games are addressing the world’s problems? Enter MyConservationPark, an innovative social game with a green, planet-friendly mission: protecting endangered animals.
In the Orangutan Park, your “hero” must be protected from an ever-growing number of human and environmental threats raiding their habitat. Conquer these challenges successfully and you will be rewarded with cash and karma. Enrich your hero’s habitat and balance the eco-system by buying native flora and fauna. Hire staff like rangers and veterinarians to defend your hero and keep the habitat sustainable. Good World Games donates 15% of player in-game purchases directly to Orangutan Outreach. Friends can visit each other’s parks to help protect and enrich each other’s conservation habitats.
Gregory Sukornyk, CEO of Good World Games, announced: “Orangutan Outreach is a leading organization in fighting for the protection of orangutans and we are excited to partner with them for the game’s orangutan mission. When players buy virtual goods with real money, they are funding Orangutan Outreach’s conservation programs in the real world.”
Richard Zimmerman, Executive Director of Orangutan Outreach added: “We are thrilled to be partnering up with Good World Games on this exciting new online venture. Connecting with the gaming community on Facebook will definitely be a win-win for players and orangutans! Raising awareness via MyConservationPark will have an enormous impact on the lives of orangutans in the wild as well as those being cared for in real-life rescue centers.”
