‘ In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught ’
– Baba Dioum
Whilst experiencing nature firsthand is irreplaceable, our modern lives can leave us feeling distanced from the natural world. With this alienation at a time when the world’s wildlife needs us the most, we at Biome feel it’s our duty to develop new ways to tell wildlife stories, push conservation issues into the spotlight and inspire the next generation of nature lovers. What better way to help people care about an issue than transporting them straight to the frontline?
That’s why we use Virtual Reality (VR). To establish an emotional connection with wildlife we need to feel present in an environment and meet our wild character face to face. Through this emotive medium we can engrain an outlook of delight, wonder and respect for our planet. Virtual reality can help write the narrative that defines our relationship with the natural world.
At Biome we pride ourselves in creating purposeful high quality 360° experiences, with a strong narrative that are stitched and edited to perfection. Our films are made to be accessible to all, with entertainment and education critical throughout.
VR has a huge appeal. Some stories can simply be watched sitting back at home; others in public attractions, like zoos, shopping centres and museums; whereas some experiences belong in the classroom.
