Parents & legal guardians must accept all responsibility for their children playing this game. This game is an educational simulation of birdwatching (i.e. birding) and conservation. Actual birdwatching and conservation in the field/wild/nature should be done with adequate hands-on training by experienced adults and conducted with them, as there are of course dangerous situations that could arise.
