Introducing the NZ-VR Project

Introducing the NZ-VR Project
Today, a virtually real experience of New Zealand’s wild places is available to every New Zealander on their smartphone, desktop computer or headset.

Just visit www.nzgeo.com/vr

Using specialised 360-VR video technology, a team from New Zealand Geographic—with funding from Foundation North and NZonAir—has produced VR experiences across six sites from Niue to the Hauraki Gulf.

For the first time, you can glide with stingrays at the Poor Knights, swim through swaying sargassum weed at the Three Kings, dive with pilot whales off the edge of the continental shelf, explore the shallows of Parengarenga Harbour, experience the charms and challenges of the Hauraki Gulf and even swim with humpback whales in Niue!

NZ-VR production is continuing across the North Island in 2019, and into the South Island thereafter. New VR experiences in new places will be released as they are finished. See all the NZ-VR sites currently available.

The project is produced in association with WWF, and The Sir Peter Blake Trust who will be visiting schools with high-quality VR headsets and curriculum connected lessons. Register interest for your school.
