To save our birds, you need to trade, draw & play to create a feather cloak of 15 cards in one bird realm: forest, settlement, sea, or extinct.
But BEWARE! Each card sports some predators – will they threaten your realm?
Fun & educational, Cloak of Protection, holds a mirror to human behaviour and the consequences of that behaviour for conservation of our native bird species.
Players develop understandings that help them make choices leading to positive action for the environment. The game contains competitive and collaborative elements, developing stategic thinking.
