A rainforest-themed room escape game is set in a shopping mall, where participants have to solve five puzzles related to wildlife to identify the master of the rainforest.

Tasks include finding the number on the wings of a bug, counting the legs of a real crab and flipping the number plate inside the cage that has a nontoxic snake.

The game is part of a nature themed exhibition held in Beijing's Chaoyang Joy City from April 22 to May 23. The exhibition, organized by Naturewin, also includes a wildlife photo exhibition and a market highlighting the benefits of ecology.

Founded in 2016, Naturewin is an institute that focuses on nature education, global eco-travel and ecological protection consultation. Zhao Chao, founder of the institute, said that some of the profits from the market will be used to sponsor frontline wildlife conservation in China.

Zhao thinks the children of this era are immersed in an electronic environment and consequently have less access to nature.

Besides the traditional way of introducing children to nature, he says he needs to find creative ways of educating children, and the exhibition is one way to do this.

"It's a reproducible mode that we can move to many other places," he says.

"To let more kids like nature, they will care for nature and learn about nature. So, when they grow up, even though they don't find a career path in this field, when they make decisions whether at their work or for their family, they may choose a more sustainable way," he says.
