The calendar is sold to raise money for children in developing countries and the profit from the 2010 calendar went to WWF´s work to promote sustainable development in the western part of Papua, Indonesia. The player takes the role of a young girl from Papua on a mission to try to convince the locals that they should take better care of Papua´s environment and wildlife. Wawi receives a camera from her mother and with the camera under her arm she ventures into the jungle and out to the sea to take pictures of Papua´s extraordinary nature.
