The virtual ecotourism team is currently collecting spherical panoramic images for our upcoming tours and we have collected these gallery images in preparation. If you are interested in creating spherical panoramas for your own conservation site, please contact vecotours [at] gmail [dot] com and we would be happy to walk you through the use of this great technology and feature your photos on our site!

The Virtual Ecotourism team has also been experimenting with an even more interactive form of panoramic photo. In partnership with a team of students from the MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management (2011-2012) at The University of Oxford, we have created an audio and video enabled pano.
The BCM team created the necessary media for a pano outlining the ecosystem services found in a child’s bedroom. Ecosystem services are an incredibly important topic in current conservation debates, and this pano breaks down a difficult concept for a non-expert audience. The virtual ecotourism team hopes to utilize this type of interactive pano in upcoming tours.

Please note: This pano was created as a school project and will not to be used for commercial purposes. The pano was created by students, however some images within accompanying videos were found using Google Images and photo credit is available upon request.
