At each stop the families answered questions and completed challenges. As they learned about each location’s natural history, the tasks revealed a letter, which at the end would help them to unscramble the final password. BZS educator Dr. Alex Amat kept in touch with each family via WhatsApp to occasionally help where necessary, and in turn they sent her their answers, photos, and video recordings of their adventures.
Some families completed “The Hunt” in one day, while others fit the different locations into their schedule over a period of a few days, accommodating naps, meals, and age of the crew. Word spread, and “The Hunt”, which was originally available for the few days before Christmas, was extended to accommodate requests from families that wanted to participate in the fun.
