Connect with Nature does exactly that – it connects you to the amazing wild spaces on your doorstep. Our missions and challenges are designed with adventure in mind – to get you up close to the natural wonders of the UAE and give you a taste of real-world conservation work.
Download the app to unlock these missions and challenges at sites around the country and to find out how you can earn badges and rewards as you Connect with Nature.
So how does this all work?
When you go to one of these sites, you will be able to view challenges in four categories: Adventure, Science, Heritage and Creativity. You can then take on these challenges to earn badges and complete the mission.
You can also earn social badges by sharing articles, photos, content and other badges through social media. The more badges you earn, the more rewards you can collect throughout your Connect with Nature journey. You can track your badges, mission progress and achievement level at any stage.
Each time you complete a challenge you will earn a badge. More adventurous challenges can only be taken on at specific sites – which means you need to get out there and rub shoulders with nature to earn a badge.
Its up to you how you complete the challenges – you can complete them all in one marathon session, or take your time over multiple visits. Whatever you choose, you’ll be able to check your progress towards the Location Mission Badge in the mobile app and see what other challenges you need to complete to earn the badge.
Players that receive their Location Mission Badges will find themselves eligible for more and more unique rewards as new locations are revealed and unlocked… And when we say unique, we mean contributing to science by tracking elusive snow leopards in Mongolia, and a host of other unforgettable once-in-a-life-time conservation experiences that will set your CV on fire.
How to Play
The blue and orange badges represent the basic rewards; earn as many of these as possible, as they will contribute to your badge progress.
Location Missions are groups of special challenges that are linked to a featured nature hotspot in the UAE. Players who complete all of the challenges in the Location Mission will earn a unique Location Mission Badge.
The blue challenge badges can be earned multiple times and added towards your total number of that badge type. As you collect more of these badges, you will progress through Prestige Levels in that challenge category.
