Our coral reefs are an important part of the environment. However, they have sadly suffered because of different anthropogenic activities. With this, NASA has launched a video game that can help save the world’s coral reefs.
NeMO-Net is a video game that allows you to help save coral reefs by identifying and classifying corals that are in our oceans to better understand these ecosystems. Over the years, NASA has collected several images of the ocean floor, and they need your help to identify them.
According to NASA principal investigator Ved Chirayath, “NeMO-Net leverages the most powerful force on this planet: not a fancy camera or a supercomputer, but people.” He adds, “Anyone, even a first grader, can play this game and sort through these data to help us map one of the most beautiful forms of life we know of.”
NeMo-Net is now available for download on the Apple App Store to play on iOS devices and Mac computers, with a forthcoming release for Android systems.
