Things seem to be going well for our brave monkey protagonist, Bubbles, in our new game Bubble Safari. Bubbles has a lady friend. He’s got a group of close animal pals. He’s surrounded by an all-you-can-eat fruit buffet in a lush jungle. It’s a primate paradise. But, suddenly, Bubbles’ life is turned upside down when a group of poachers capture his sweetheart and friends.
The sad part is that too often the same thing happens in real life to Bubbles’ wild kin. Starting today, we want to give our players a chance to help fight off real-life poachers and protect endangered primates from the illegal wildlife trade.
We’re proud to kick off Bubble Safari’s first Zynga.org initiative with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). Now in Bubble Safari, players can purchase an exclusive, in-game starter pack, and 100% of the purchase price will go directly to the WCS to help take care of our animal friends. Starter packs include bundles of in-game Safari Cash, Coins and Power Ups -- all at a special discount. The program marks the first time we’ve incorporated a game’s central storyline into a Zynga.org campaign.
