Walk With the Elephants

We’ve got (happy) family things going on this weekend, so my posts will be a bit on the brief side. Hope you enjoy them nonetheless!

This is a great find shamelessly stolen from the lovely Andrea who writes the ARHtistic License blog. On Fridays, she publishes “Creative Juice,” an awesome list of internet finds. Check it out!

Today, I am thrilled to bring you an amazing virtual reality video that allows you to walk with elephants. This is turning out to be something of a large animal kind of a week! National Geographic produced and hosts the VR experience which allows you to get very close to African elephants in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.

“This is the second episode of “The Okavango Experience,” a 360-degree, virtual reality series following National Geographic Society’s Okavango Wilderness Project. An international team of scientists, guides, and support staff, led by conservation biologist Steve Boyes, is exploring and surveying the Okavango River Basin, which stretches from southern Angola, through a narrow strip of Namibia, and into the delta of northern Botswana.”

If you have a VR headset, Nat Geo recommends you view the video that way, but you can still enjoy it if all you have is a computer or phone!

You can view the video and read more about the project on the Nat Geo Okavango Wilderness page. You can also view episode 1 here.
