DISCOVER, LEARN, EXPLORE!
Collect virtual animals and learn about the wildlife in Britain. Keep your ears listening and your eyes open, you might see the real thing!
Pocket Pals is an app that connects people with wildlife and the environment through their mobile phones. The app utilises GPS on mobile devices, allowing players to walk and locate digital animals. Through the excitement of exploring and tracking animated animals, users will learn how to identify and classify British fauna, from quirky Pine martens to less known but equally marvellous animals such as the Sunfish.
Pocket Pals aims to engage young people with wildlife with a free-to-play app featuring charismatic virtual animals based on the wildlife of Britain. Pocket Pals is made by young people for young people, in an attempt to make wildlife cool and fun. Having an interest in the natural world should not be stereotyped as an 'old man's hobby', but instead be enjoyed by all, and especially our future generation.
Our Subscription Pack includes various features that encourage users to nature reserves.
This includes GPS virtual locations such as animal hotspots where animals spawn more frequently. Visitors can complete a Pocket challenge whilst visiting the reserve, this will include tasks such as finding x number of Pocket Pals. A Champion Animal is an extra special animal in Pocket Pals and its profile will have a direct link to the organisation's website or any page they desire. We're also developing Augmented Reality Trails; users will be able to scan codes along a trail at a reserve to bring virtual animals into the real world.
