Experience the adventure of real outdoor quests - for real wildlife!

QuestaGame takes you outdoors - to your backyard, a local park, a hiking trail, anywhere - for you to discover, learn about, and help monitor biodiversity. Join quests and compete with other players to photograph animals and plants in the wild and ultimately help create a sustainable future.

Urban biodiversity is often an undervalued topic. At Melbourne University there is scarce information about the different species that live or use the campus ecosystem. Therefore identifying the species that are around not only helps to create awareness but also serves as a way of gaining a better understanding of the biodiversity using urban spaces.

Not just for fun but a serious side of adding to the Atlas of Living Australia biodiversity database.

The original concept

The Wildversity Clan

QuestaGame is a citizen science app that helps you discover the biodiversity around your university and neighbourhood.

Simply take a photo of a bird, insect, plant, mammal - just about any living specimen - and submit it to QuestaGame's experts. You can use your device's camera or your own camera.

You'll receive an identification and/or verification of the specimen, and the data will be added to national and global biodiversity databases to help map and protect biodiversity.

Your sightings are geo-tagged and added to your collection for easy tracking and future reference.

---

Your goal is to add as many unique species to your collection as you can.

There are two ways to do this:

  • Take photos of unique species yourself
  • Receive species from other players who join your quests

---

Free to play!
Start playing the world's first mobile game that takes you outdoors to discover and help preserve life on this planet.  It's free. The sightings you report contribute to biodiversity research and conservation.

QuestaGame is supported by a network of professional scientists and amateur naturalists who help identify players’ sightings

Description

Experience the adventure of your local wildlife!

QuestaGame takes you outdoors - to your backyard, a local park, a hiking trail, anywhere. Join quests and compete with other players to photograph animals and plants in the wild.

The game includes all species in your country, using national and global databases.

See which birds, insects and other wildlife are more easily spotted in your location at the current time of year. Then join quests, earn gold, buy supplies, gain levels, build your collection, join clans, conquer territories, move up the leader board and become one of the great adventurers of all time.

All sightings are geo-tagged with location, date, time and submitted to your country's national database -- so you're not only mapping your conquests, you're also helping scientists, researchers, planners and others record and protect you region's biodiversity while you play.
