There are only four northern white rhinos left in the world, three of which are guarded by heavily armed rangers in Kenya and one of which sits at the San Diego Zoo where scientists are working to possibly clone the animal in order to save it from extinction.

This story is at the heart of Kel O’Neill and Eline Jongsma's in-progress documentary The Ark. And to tell it, they have decided to employ virtual reality.

"We want the viewer to feel as though they’re a floating ball of consciousness while they watch the piece," O'Neill tells MIT Technology Review.
