English Synopsis
To get 200.000 extra visitors to the Antwerp Zoo, we focused on a unique and highly emotional event: the birth of a young elephant. So we built a digital platform, allowing people to follow the story on a day by day basis. They could do this by reading the baby elephant blog, by seeing regular ultrasounds, by consuming engaging user generated content, by participating in the crowdsourcing of the name of the baby elephant, by registering to receive regular updates about the baby and the mother elephant’s condition. Gradually, KMDA (Antwerp Zoo) and Boondoggle made them ready for the climax: the live broadcast of the birth, something never done before, that wrote digital history.
