Game developers for biodiversity.

Pelimetsä is a project of the Finnish game developer community for the protection of old Finnish forests. The trees and the forest floor are a permanent storage for carbon, and a haven of vulnerable biodiversity.

In support of the work of the Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation, over 330 acres of forest have been permanently preserved.


Currently Pelimetsä consists of two locations: one in South Finland, one in Lapland.
