Keep the pond clean.

You can recognize a healthy pond by clear water. You will see various water plants and fish such as pike, roach and tench. And there are various aquatic creatures such as beetles, bugs, snails, caddis flyers and dragonfly larvae. Bread, leaves and dog poo provide nutrient-rich water in the pond. That sounds good, but too much food in the water is not good for some animals and plants. The water becomes cloudy and the oxygen content in the water decreases. This causes the pond to smell and fish to die.    

Twist the taps!

Do you know how to ensure a clean pond? Answer the question at the back and turn the taps! Besides this bathtub object with the taps, we also created another concept where the visual changed by sliding the lever at the bottom of the board. Ultimately we opted for this concept so that we can use clear yes or no questions.

Epilogue :)

We went looking for a fun, interactive variation of the 'no feeding ducks' sign that can already be found in many parks. By visualizing the different states of a pond and having the park visitors think about the desired behavior at a pond, we hope that the information will stick longer and the pond will remain healthy.
