Everything you need to know about For Our World – an incredible online wildlife experience.

Now that August is well underway, it’s safe to say your kids are probably looking to make the most of the remainder of their summer holidays.

Anything that gets them exploring the great outdoors with a new perspective and purpose is the perfect summer activity, especially if there’s an added educational bonus too.

That’s why, this summer, SSE Airtricity and Dublin Zoo are bringing the wildlife into your home with For Our World, an interactive and fun online learning adventure.

For Our World is a series of interactive online learning adventures, to teach kids all about conservation and encourage them to explore the environment they live in.

The series features portraits of Dublin Zoo animals, such as the Humboldt Penguin and Western Lowland Gorilla, taken by renowned wildlife photographer Mike Brown.

Throughout the series Mike will give kids some insight into the conservation projects at Dublin Zoo, and set mini challenges for them to do at home, encouraging them to get outdoors explore their own local area and learn all about biodiversity, animal habitats and the environment.

Every fortnight until the end of August, new content will be added to the site here, featuring facts and information about the animals at Dublin Zoo and the conservation projects they support. So not only will kids get a unique insight into the Zoo’s wildlife, but they’ll also learn more about the habitats they live in too.

Capturing the wildlife at Dublin Zoo in incredible detail, these never-before-seen images have also been rendered with artificial intelligence to give them an incredible 3D effect. So, no matter where you are nationwide this summer, your family can still enjoy the magic and excitement of Dublin Zoo from the comfort of your own home.
