Following the ceremony, special guests attended a reception hosted by the Rwandan government at the Ellen Campus, where attendees and other visitors had an opportunity to interact with Immotion’s VR pods. Thrilled by the enthusiastic welcoming at this new venue, Immotion President Rod Findley said, “We are incredibly honored to have the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund feature Gorilla Trek, our marquee zoo attraction, at their world-renowned Ellen DeGeneres Campus.”

The Fossey Fund’s integrated approach to conservation includes close collaboration with local governments and communities and with partners around the world.
One of the four strategic areas of focus for the Fossey Fund is conservation education. “Immotion has been an invaluable partner to us and its VR experiences are the perfect tool to spotlight conservation issues around the world,” said Dr. Stoinski. “We are grateful for their involvement as it will create opportunities for schools, organizations, and guests of all ages to experience gorillas in a fully-immersive way.”
