The Conservation Museum is a place for Jammers to learn about endangered animals, and what they can do to help. Visit the Conservation Museum to learn about animals, print worksheets, and tell us your ideas on how to help endangered animals in the real world.
The Gem donation box in the Conservation Museum is one way that Animal Jam helps support the mission of the National Geographic Society to inspire kids to care about the planet. A significant portion of all revenue Animal Jam collects goes to support National Geographic's worldwide conservation efforts. To date, Jammers have enabled the Animal Jam creators at Smart Bomb Interactive to contribute over $3 Million to the National Geographic Society's work. The Gem donation box helps us determine which individual projects and animals kids would particularly like Animal Jam to support. This is a precursor to the Play Wild Fund, which will give kids direct control over where their contributions are channeled. We're planning to launch the Play Wild Fund later this year. Until we do, we are finding ways to give Jammers a voice in the way we support the conservation of wild animals and places! You can read more about ongoing NGS projects here.

In 2012, monkeys became endangered in Jamaa. Due to the generosity of our Jammers donating a whopping 100,000,000 gems, we were able to successfully conserve the population. Monkeys are now back adventuring the lands, all thanks to the efforts of our Jammers. What endangered animals would you like to help save and bring to Jamaa?
