Virtual Reality and Digital Wildlife Conservation

How we connect to and support conservation programmes in far off places is a concern for us all. Experts from organisations including WWF and the Zoological Society of London will explore this challenge and show how we can participate in citizen science through the use of connected technology.

Through debate and live demos we'll uncover new ways to get closer to animals in the wild, and to use digital technology for global conservation.
