A VR quest to make you care about endangered species

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Initially, Dragayeva’s team thought all it would need to do was drop food in front of its cameras and the animals would be drawn to them and more or less ham it up.
  • When you shake the PS4’s controller and drop a bundle of acacia branches for the elephants to eat, an adorable juvenile cautiously trudges over to inspect the noise.
  • A soothing female voice with a British accent explains that acacia branches are an elephant’s favorite food and that the massive mammals use their tusks as a sort of helping hand while eating.
  • Now, the voiceover explains that because the meat wasn’t a fresh kill, the big cat ignored it.
  • On the other hand, one of the baboons was so interested in the camera that it licked it, broke the mount, knocked it to the ground and batted it around.
