Marine Mammals Alive Exhibition

This research will explore how virtual reality underwater experiences can promote public appreciation and participation in marine conversation. The viewer is presented with an immersive underwater experience using the Oculus Rift that features 3D computer generated animations. Visitors to the exhibition will be asked a series of questions before and after the VR experience. These questions will investigate the visitor’s knowledge of marine mammals residing in Malaysian waters and their role in the marine ecosystem. They will be queried on previous participation and willingness to participate in marine conservation activities.
