Leading VR company Oculus has teamed up with National Geographic and Felix & Paul Studios to put together an immersive VR experience that makes it possible for people around the world to explore the natural splendor of Yosemite National Park alongside none other than President Barack Obama.

This VR experience, dubbed 'Through the Ages: President Obama Celebrates America's National Parks' is available for purchase via the Oculus Store for Gear VR. The journey includes as many as ten different 360-degree videos in different natural locations, and allows you to feel like you're standing with the President himself as he goes about delivering his narration and speeches in an effort to raise awareness about park conservation efforts.

This innovative project speaks to the ability of VR experiences to enrich conservation efforts by capturing people's attentions.
