If you’re looking for a fun interactive experience, check it out for free at https://atlanta40.scienceatl.org! The Atlanta40 project was sponsored by Emory University.
So, are you ready to become a BIG TIME micro-conservationist?!
Tell me more!
Local community members came together to curate terrific content that is iconic, memorable, and very “Atlanta”! Each species has a video, description, more info, image, and fun micro-conservatoin act.
The project is accessible on both desktop and mobile devices. We recommend you try it out on your phone so you can do it easily on the go!
Once you sign up, you get to explore species and items in different category stages (common, cultural, agricultural, etc).
The stages unlock as you complete simple micro-conservation tasks for each species. Don’t worry, they’re don’t ask too much of you! For instance, the Peach conservation act is: “Think of a tree you see every day. Give that tree a name”.
Featuring Celebrities and Community Leaders
Prominent organization leaders and celebrities including singer Eric “Ricky” McKinnie of the Blind Boys of Alabama contributed informative (and hilarious) videos for each of the species. Even Atlanta United’s adorable Spike the Service Dog makes an appearance!
