Come Forth for Wildlife’s Virtual Reality Exhibitions will reach 8,800 people over at least 10 exhibitions held throughout the project.
During these exhibitions you can experience life as a Common Toad when trying to cross a road and learn more about the dangers of roads to wildlife including amphibians and reptiles. When will wildlife be given the green light? Our roads make great efforts protecting people when crossing but this same protection is not afforded to our wildlife.
Our Virtual Reality Exhibitions will currently be held using tablets whilst virtual reality headsets cannot be used for hygiene purposes – but you can still experience the exhibition from start to finish! Our first Virtual Reality Exhibition took place in July 2021 at Sterling Mills Shopping Outlet, Clackmannanshire with passers-by learning all about the experiences of toads crossing roads.
We have so far engaged 3,709 people at 5 Virtual Reality Exhibitions.
Our Virtual Reality Exhibitions were at the Stirling Science Festival and the Stirling Climate Festival in October. These will continue to run at different venues throughout the winter months – if you missed us previously then you can also see all events here for exhibitions coming up.
