Northern Michigan University organization raising awareness through Virtual Reality

MARQUETTE –Today, Students Against Animal Exploitation hosted a unique immersive experience into the lives of farmed animals.

Students Against Animal Exploitation is a group of Northern Michigan University students who are educating students and community members about animal agriculture, and the various ways animals are exploited by society.

Farming is their primary focus, but also animal testing and fashion.

Today, in Jamrich Hall they hosted an event called “Virtual Reality” using IAnimal, which is footage from Factory Farms from the perspective of animals.

“Virtual Reality is a really fun and engaging way to learn about animal agriculture. A lot of people don’t know where their food comes from and the processes that it takes to make the food. We just want to educate people, so they can make informed choices. Animal agriculture causes a lot of health problems and environmental destruction,” said Mandy Moseley, Founder of Students Against Animal Exploitation.

Students Against Animal Exploitation is hosting an event on Earth Day, where they are showing a documentary that explains the effects of animal agriculture on the environment.
