Boo the caribou spends her days happily playing with her mom and dad, learning how to break through the snow to reach the tasty grass below. But everything changes when rain comes to the normally frigid Arctic. Ice is much harder to break through than snow! Experience the emotional yet uplifting plight of the caribou as you learn about the science of the Arctic.

It takes skill to bounce your hoof off of different surfaces and reveal enough grass for your family. You'll carom through 16 different levels, each illustrated with striking original watercolors.

Rain on snow events are occurring more and more in the Arctic. You'll learn about this challenge and how we can help the caribou! A Caribou's Tale is based on real science facts, with educational material written by environmental scientists at University of Washington.

A Caribou's Tale is a project of EarthGames and the University of Washington. Check out our other science-based games on the App Store, including Infrared Escape, Erode Runner, and Climate Quest.
