Wildlife Expertise - It "Pays to Know"
QuestaGame is designed to help promote environmental discovery, education and conservation. Toward this goal, QuestaGame has created a Biodiversity Expertise Fund. This not-for-profit fund is meant to help motivate people to learn about the environment. For every sighting correctly identified through QuestaGame’s BioExpertise Engine (see http://BEE.questagame.com) - or through an official QuestaGame partner site - the Biodiversity Expertise Fund makes a donation to the charity of the user’s choice.
The amount rewarded per correct ID depends on such factors as the difficulty of the sighting and the quality of the response, as determined by the community. QuestaGame makes a monthly donation to the Biodiversity Knowledge Fund. The more money available in the Fund, the more money can be distributed through BEE - which raises the value of wildlife expertise and contributes to researcher’s understanding of biodiversity and how best to protect it.
