VR for good

We are using the power of VR to educate and tell important stories of conservation projects around the world.

Fighting plastic in indonesia

The annual consumption of plastic bottles is set to top half a trillion by 2021, far outstripping recycling efforts and jeopardising oceans, coastlines and life on the planet. The demand, equivalent to 20,000 bottles bought every second, is driven by an insatiable desire for bottled water and the spread of the “on the go” culture in Asia Pacific.

The Banda Islands in Indonesia are part of the Coral Triangle. While traveling there earlier in 2018, I found that the oceans are facing enormous pressure from plastic pollution. Working together with a local school, we brought an underwater VR experience to the children to allows them to experience the difference between a healthy reef and one destroyed by pollution.

Marine Megafauna Foundation

Sustainable Seas and Reef Closure Programme

Reef closure success

For many coastal communities in Mozambique, fishing is a primary source of food and income. Many families depend almost entirely on the resources of the sea for survival. Although fishermen traditionally use rods and lines, overfishing has meant they now resort to gill nets to sustain their catch.
The foundations flagship conservation initiative, the Sustainable Seas Program, aims to empower communities to manage their marine ecosystems in a sustainable way. This journalistic piece takes you to Tofo in Mozambique to witness the opening of a six-month reef closure.  Meet members of the foundation and the local community to hear what they have to say about the initiative and its impact.
