Wild Eyes

Nature Missions for Kiwi Kids
Learn nature ninja skills, get crafty, hunt poo and discover amazing stuff outdoors.
What? Never hunted poo? Don’t worry, it doesn’t run fast…

Wild Eyes offers a new way for Kiwi kids to connect with nature. It triggers them to see and enjoy the wonder, excitement and adventure that our natural and scientific world can contribute to their lives.

Wild Eyes offers a digital springboard for NZ kids to get outside to explore and learn. It enables them to engage with the natural world in fun and dynamic ways and provides digital rewards for completed missions. For this first generation of digital natives Wild Eyes creates a relevant social currency by allowing them to share and connect their passion for the natural world online, with a community of their peers.

Wild Eyes wants New Zealand kids to exchange their square eyes for their wild eyes. Rather than couch kumara sitting glued to screens and disconnected from the natural world, Wild Eyes aims for kids to enjoy playing, creating and learning outside. Ultimately we aim for these Wildings to become advocates for their native taonga and resources, and become the scientists, kaitiaki, conservationists, ecologists and artists of the future.
