Virry Academy is a playful, cutting edge learning tool for children. You probably would not even imagine that these things can be done in Virry:
- give water to real giraffes by shaking iPad or iPhone,
- literally call out the lioness and watch her appear,
- smile to the macaques and see how they react
- spin around in cardboard glasses, and let timorous zebra sniff your face!
Yes, quite unbelievable but it’s true. We chose the best wildlife conservancies and wildlife parks for partnership as we strive to take communication between kids and animals to a whole new level, and nurture an empathetic connection with wildlife.
Progress from being an Intern of Virry Academy to the Head of Meerkats, Minister of Rhinos or President of the Council of the Elephants by collecting awesome badges. Badges are awarded for playing Interactive games, watching live cameras and making screenshots as a real wildlife photographer, spinning around in 360/VR videos, creating and showing your friends best moments from live video-library covering a wide range of species.
Wildlife is not abstract anymore as Virry makes wild animals your close friends. Not every scientist can boast of such a powerful tool to watch wild species every day.
28 unique games with real animals: Macaques, Orangutans, Lion, Flamingos, Rhino, Giraffes and Meerkats.
12 live streaming, high-definition cameras to turn your mobile device into a window to faraway wildlife.
150 best moments from the live stream, with weekly updates.
Explorers’ diary and photo ops let you save and share your adventures.
VIRRY encourages discovery and problem solving, helping kids to better understand nature and the world around them. But it’s not all about action. VIRRY also encourages kids to be more empathetic. Don’t scare the animals! Let them come to you. These empowering moments teach important skills that are often overlooked in ordinary games.
To play VIRRY on Apple TV, please install the free VIRRY Controller app on your iPhone or iPad from the App Store: this allows you to interact with the animals through your TV.

Ratings and Reviews
Imagine a zoo that’s always open—that's Virry. This inspired app takes young explorers on safaris with a dazzling array of exotic and familiar wildlife. Kids can even help care for the animals. We’re delighted by all the animal facts, but the best part is how it fosters creativity and emotional connections with nature.
Best ever app! My son loves the animals. He learned a lot from the games. For example, now he can sit still and speak in a hushed voice which he learned in the lion game. It's a bless in many situations when we want him to be quiet. Meerkats, egg time. It has become a catchphrase to announce his dinner. It's fun for him and helpful for us. We all love it.
This is FANTASTIC
What a wonderful app!!! I'm always a bit worried about children's apps and whether they'll negatively impact their development BUT Virry does the opposite, this allows users to genuinely interact with animals LIVE!!!!! love the lion especially, and the orangutans are lovely!!
