WWF Together App

A bone crushing bite from a jaguar

An app from the World Wildlife Fund about endangered animals may first appear a little off topic. After all, what has this got to do with getting the kids outside?

Explore the globe
Quite simply we believe one way to get your children to enjoy the outdoors is to develop an appreciation for it. That means understanding the environment and the nature that lives in it.

Now you are unlikely to come across Giant Pandas when out for a walk with your kids, but this app is designed to help people of all ages learn a little bit more about some threatened species.


WWF Together

Discover about endangered animals in the WWF Together app
The app is available for Android, iOS, and Kindle….and has stunning graphics.

Once you’ve worked out the basic navigation, you can explore lots of interesting facts about each animal, and each animal shows it slightly differently so it doesn’t get repetitive.

It’s a great app to spend a few minutes with your kids to explore some interesting information. And I bet there’s stuff in there that you didn’t know about.

I didn’t realise the a new born Giant Panda is about the size of a stick of butter!

Animal Origami

Cool origami in the WWF Together app
A theme throughout WWF Together app is the origami shapes of the animals.

Once you’ve completed an animal it will reveal how to make it out of paper.

Unfortunately the video that shows it is very fast. You’ll have to keep pausing it. There are some step-by-step instructions but unfortunately we found the app crashed each time we tried to load them. We’re hoping they fix that soon.

One of our daughters spent a good while with the app (she took the screenshot pictures shown here). She really liked the app, but was disappointed the step-by-step origami instructions didn’t work.

Downloading the App

Giant Pandas
It’s certainly worth checking it out, and if you can, load it on a tablet for the best results.

Hopefully the origami instructions will work for you as they look quite fun.
