Traveling through the forest, over the desert, into the ocean, and up to the mountaintops, geocachers witnessed 13 species of Hidden Creatures around the world. We created an infographic to showcase six fun stats from the campaign. From stats to photos, here’s a look inside Hidden Creatures:
Spotted: Three legendary creatures hidden among towering trees and overgrown greenery. Be on the lookout for the hairy Bigfoot (and its enormous footprints), glorious Unicorn, and whimsical Fairy. Navigating through a mossy forest and looking for objects should feel familiar to all geocachers.
For the next four weeks we will be highlighting the different habitats these Hidden Creatures call home. If you find 100 caches in the first week you will earn all of the souvenirs at that time. You can take your time and cache over all four weeks or challenge yourself to find them all as fast as you can!
With eight years of Geocaching HQ experience, graphic designer Roxxy is one half of the creative creatures that make up the design team here at HQ! She’s been designing souvenirs, geocoins, art, and more since 2010 and she is the artist behind the mythical beings of Hidden Creatures. We chatted with Roxxy to learn how Geocaching souvenirs come to life!
