EarthXR, a branch of EarthXFilm, is bringing the world to your screen through a new partnership with Wild Immersion. Endorsed by primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall, Wild at Home will kick off Climate Week on Sept. 21 with 360-degree immersive videos of our planet.
Wild at Home, which is being lauded as the first virtual nature preserve, allows viewers to experience the African Savannah, Asian landscape, and Amazon Rainforest through a smartphone, tablet, or VR headset.
“Wild Immersion has harnessed emerging technologies to inspire wonder through stunning encounters with wildlife in their natural habitats for viewers at home or in the classroom, helping to deepen our connection with both ourselves and nature, and expanding our empathy and passion to protect living creatures,” Director of XR Programming + Partnerships for EarthXR Tiffany Kieran said in a statement.
Launched in 2017, EarthXR is dedicated to interactive storytelling designed to further engage and inspire environmental awareness through immersive technology.
As people continue to stay home throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, they can experience the world through technology while learning about wildlife in different regions of the globe.
The goal of Wild at Home is to safely educate audiences on the threats that animals and their habitats face so everyone can become part of a global solution to preserve the planet.
“While the world is asked to stay home to protect humanity, animals are still in a very endangered state,” CEO of Wild Immersion Grégoire Moisson said in a statement. “Our urgency, next to that of our own safety, is to protect biodiversity, which is both a tremendous gift from our Mother Earth and an important component of our global life cycle.”
Wild at Home experiences will be available beginning Sept. 21 and will cover the wildlife of Africa, Asia, and the Amazon of South America. The experiences can be viewed on any device at the link here.
