MyConservationPark is a Facebook game that’s actually good for something

MyConservationPark is a Farmville-style Facebook game that lets you administer a nature preserve, juggling animals, plants, structures, and people to protect the habitat of endangered wildlife. But this isn't just a whole new way to annoy your Facebook friends with environmentalism; it also makes a difference in the real world. Fifteen percent of any in-game purchase goes directly to conservation groups. Sure, maybe you shouldn't be spending your money on Facebook games, but who are we to judge? You have to get through your work day like everybody else, so you might as well be helping save gorillas or whatever while you're at it. Does Farmville give money to independent farms? Does YoVille give money to endangered yos? Does Bejeweled Blitz give jewels to anybody ? Okay then.
