Connecting urban citizens to nature with VR

The Forest and Wildlife team travelled to three separate Cambodian forests to document them with 360 images and sounds. They built these into interactive VR experiences and a map-based application. The goal is to connect the residents of Phnom Penh, particularly youth, with the diverse biosphere that is at risk of destruction.
