This project is based on 360 degree images and videos taken during a study abroad experience in Australia. The videos are compiled into a longer viewer experience showing sea life that is being conserved on the Great Barrier Reef. On our trip, we primarily focused on coral preservation, by doing reef surveys to determine how much of the reef has been damaged. We also participated in the reef restoration process which involves cleaning seaweed off of coral in order to allow sunlight to reach the coral, which is a vital component for healthy corals. The video footage can be viewed in a virtual reality headset to enhance user experience for watching the video.
