Conservation Using Technology
Staycation Safari was created for the purpose of global National Park conservation.
By highlighting and showcasing the wonders of nature in our national parks worldwide using 360° VR technology, it increases awareness of these amazing and diverse ecosystems.
And this awareness often leads to a desire for a better connection with nature (e.g by visiting a national park) and the realisation that conservation is imperative to preserve that connection.
Bruce Whittaker, the founder of Staycation Safari, has been using new technologies to raise awareness of African National Parks and game reserves since 2003...
