The creator of augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) content for schools and education, VictoryXR, announced a collaboration with Big Cat Rescue, which you might have previously heard of through the Netflix show ‘Tiger King’. The partnership will bring the wildlife sanctuary’s VR experience to students across the US through the company’s VXR.Direct’ school curriculum creator platform.
The ‘Big Cat Rescue VR’ experience first debuted in the summer of 2020 but lost the limelight due to the aforementioned Netflix documentary featuring Carole Baskin, Founder and CEO of Big Cat Rescue.
“We are particularly happy to have created this relationship with VictoryXR because they have already proven to be thought leaders in this field,” said Baskin, adding, “Their relationship with schools will help us reach students everywhere.”
Big Cat Rescue VR will be available everywhere, at schools, for homeschool families, etc. through the VXR.Direct platform. The platform will offer an ‘all-you-can learn’ solution comprising content from Carolina Biological, Rome Reborn, and learning units from a holographic version of American high school science teacher Wendy Martin.
Students get to experience being a wildcat tracker assistant as well as learn how to find and protect tigers in the wild. The experience will also teach them the methods to assist in the search of a missing tiger through a guided forest experience with a Big Cat Rescue tracker.
“When we launched the virtual reality frog dissection, we won an international award. But still, it’s the inside of a frog. I love this Big Cat VR because we are rescuing fully intact animals and that’s a fun outcome,” said Steve Grubbs, Founder of VictoryXR.
