Virtual Reality Meets Nature Conservation

The Jardin d’Acclimatation has introduced a new marquee attraction called “Wild Immersion”, a virtual reality experience that plunges visitors into the heart of nature and wildlife. This spectacular attraction has been developed in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute. 

A haven of greenery in the heart of the city, the Jardin d’Acclimatation has always been a place where people can reconnect with nature.  With a resolutely contemporary vision, the Jardin has welcomed virtual reality to create an exciting new attraction called Wild Immersion. This immersive experience takes visitors on a fascinating journey into the heart of a virtual wildlife reserve.

A Journey Through Virtual Habitats

In the heart of the Palais d’Hiver in an interactive environment with lush vegetation and sophisticated sound, Wild Immersion offers a tour of the world’s flora and fauna in six films lasting 12 minutes each. Viewers find themselves face-to-face with animals from the Amazon rainforest, pandas in Asia, whale sharks in Oceania and elephants in the African savanna. What’s more, this virtual wildlife tour leaves no carbon footprint while heightening awareness of the threat to endangered species.

Educational Impact and Environmental Benefits

The Jardin d’Acclimatation has made a strong statement by welcoming an attraction with a powerful educational message for young and older visitors alike on the importance of protecting nature and wildlife. To prepare the attraction the Jardin teamed with the Jane Goodall Institute founded by the celebrated English primatologist Jane Goodall, who dedicated her life to protecting animal biodiversity. One percent of revenue generated by the attraction will be donated to the institute to help fund its natural reserves.

Practical Information for Visitors

  • Entry to Wild Immersion Alone: 10 euros
  • Combined Ticket (Entry, Wild Immersion, and 3 Attractions): 16 euros

This new attraction stands as a testament to the Jardin d’Acclimatation’s ongoing mission to blend educational initiatives with innovative entertainment, making it a must-visit for both young and old alike, keen on experiencing the wonders of nature while supporting conservation efforts.
