National Geographic is one of those channels that you know as a parent you can watch with your children and you don’t have to worry about what they will show. My children are fascinated with animals and all things related to our Earth. Nat Geo always gives them a chance to learn about wildlife right from their living room. AND it’s a great way to get my oldest to unplug!
On Sunday, July 9th, National Geographic will be hosting the network’s greatest event to date! EARTH LIVE! Below is some information about the show. This will definitely be one not to miss! Some of the highlights will include:
- An underwater vantage point with cinematographer Andy Casagrande reporting amongst a feeding frenzy of bull sharks in the South Pacific
- Up-close views of humpback whales from a scientific-data-collecting “snot-bot” drone
- Full-color views of wildlife, including a pride of lions in the Masai Mara, Ethiopian Hyenas, and 20 million bats flying in the skies of Texas, lit only by the moon via new low-light camera technology that allows shooting at night that looks as if it’s shot during the day
- Soaring birds-eye views from a modified lipstick camera fitted onto the back of a Golden Eagle
- Life in the ocean depths from a submarine with Dr. Bob Ballard on one of his Nautilus expeditions, famous for discovering the Titanic wreckage
- Ocelots in Brazil, weaver ants and crocodiles in Australia, hyenas in Ethiopia, monkeys in India, Macaques in Thailand, wolverines in Finland and much more!
The earth’s wildlife population has declined by more than HALF since 1970, according to a recent study by the World Wildlife Fund. National Geographic’s “EARTH LIVE” aims to connect viewers with wildlife like never before on a one-night journey across the planet.
