Operation Resilient Planet The Operation: Resilient Planet game empowers school-aged-children as they travel to some of the most unique underwater ecosystems in the planet and gather cutting -edge data about some of the planet’s most vulnerable creatures. Kids use fun, exciting, and authentic tools like remotely operated vehicles and “Crittercams” to assemble an understanding about some of the most endangered marine species in the world. Together with close collaboration with some of National Geographic’s leading ecologists, players uncover groundbreaking ecological theories that have only recently emerged in scientific journals.
The first mission occurs in the Gulf of Mexico. Explosives on an oil platform are in the process of being placed and time is running out. Below the surface of the waves, many species must be protected, and Dr. Bob Ballard (the discoverer of the Titanic, who does the voice acting in the game) is asking for help to save the turtles.
The second mission occurs in the pristine Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument where two ancient predators seem to be at odds with each other. A leading expert in the area suggests introducing a shark cull, but not so fast! Players investigate the delicate relationships between species in this unique environment and have the power to preserve one of the last pristine ecosystems we have!
