In this paper we present educational game developed with major aim to educate and raise awareness of people about ecological issues in reserves of nature. In order to fulfil this aim, we decided to implement simulation game based on prey predator model. Another part of the game are flesh cards, with questions and answers targeting specific problems and species in nature reserves. Case study given in this paper is Special nature reserve Uvac from Serbia. This is the only one reserve in Europe which is the habitat of griffon vulture, which is endangered species, very important for protection of nature, preventing expansion of various infectious diseases. Developed game shows what would happen if there is no enough prey population (carcass in the case of Uvac) and also when there is no enough predator population (griffon vulture in this case).
