Dive In Honduras
With the emergence of 360 video technology, the world is one step closer to fully experiencing the vastness of the Oceans. Running Wild Media teamed up with Kodak PixPro 360 VR Cameras to highlight some of the best the Ocean has to offer. We are creating a completely immersive show that will allow viewers to experience this unexplored world instead of just view it. Our co-founder Justin Grubb and Miss Scuba International 2018, Brittany Novick, host the series underwater to give the viewer immediate feedback on exciting animal behaviors.
For the first part of the series, the videos were shot on the coast of Honduras around the Bay Islands of Utila and Roatan. Both locations are havens for wildlife and coral reefs which are all becoming increasingly rare around the World. During the series, viewers or, experiencers, will expect to see lionfish hunting, amazing sections of coral reef and plenty of sea turtles.
The first season's episodes are still being completed, but following the creation of this series, there will be an educational outreach campaign aimed towards the island of Roatan to engage young Hondurans in ocean conservation. Many of the children on the island surrounded by reef, don't often get to see the reef because of a variety of limitations. This series will break those limitations and bring the ocean to the classroom with the help of MarAlliance and the Roatan Marine Park.
With your help, we can offer the students this immersive experience using Virtual Reality headsets to truly understand their impact on their local ecosystems. The money will be used to buy the classroom materials necessary implement these learning experiences. A donation of $100 will purchase one headset for a student to use during the classroom visit. Headsets for this project are Razergon VR all-in-one headsets produced by OQTAGON. $25 will bring the Roatan based team to a school.
Any help would be a direct life line to these critically threatened ecosystems.
