DPI NSW set out to create an innovative approach to educating producers on riparian zones and building native habitats for the endangered regent honeyeater. By using 360 video, producers were immersed into examples of properties that had implemented best practice riparian zone management and native habitat creation giving them the feeling that they had visited the property. The experiences were deployed onto a branded virtual reality application that is used at field days that DPI NSW attend to disseminate the knowledge to producers. A highlight of the project was capturing a pair of critically endangered regent honeyeaters nesting in their native habitat.
