Tigers need our help. When WWF-UK searched to find a memorable and emotive way to raise awareness of the threats these impressive animals face in the wild, we had the answer.
The Tiger Experience not only raises awareness of the tireless efforts of incredible rangers, but also inspires the nation to help us protect the tiger for generations to come.
Kerry Blackstock, Director of Public Fundraising, WWF-UK
The tiger is the largest and most iconic of all the big cats. But threats like poaching and habitat destruction means that tigers are now one of the world’s most endangered animals. WWF-UK looked to deliver this hard-hitting message in a bid to secure vital support for its work.
What we did
We combined Virtual Reality (VR) with CGI 360˚ film-making to create a powerful experience that allowed participants to come face-to-face with tigers in the wild. WWF-UK’s celebrity ambassador Will Young publicly endorsed the campaign, which ran for several days at Westfield shopping centres. You can see the VR film and read more on WWF-UK’s site.
How we did it
Our immersive campaign put participants in the shoes of a ranger, walking through an exotic forest where tigers roam. Knowledgeable brand ambassadors talked visitors through the experience and answered questions to help build understanding and inspire members of the public to take out a tiger adoption or join WWF.
