WildEarth is super excited and proud to announce that LIVE safaris are back! On the 2nd November 2014, if all goes to plan, WE will begin broadcasting twice daily 3-hour safaris on the Internet. We will be traversing both Djuma and Arathusa game reserves and that means that all our favourite animal characters are back: Karula, the Nkuhuma lion pride, Shadow, Mvula and so many more.

This time we are broadcasting from 2 safari vehicles [the Jigga and now also "Wendy"] in the same show. That means that Will Fox [director] will cut between the two vehicles so that you see far more sightings and less driving around. To begin with Pieter Pretorius and Hayden Turner will be presenting from 2nd November to the 7th December. After that Marc Weiner and Scott Dyson will be joining us [8th December] and will carry us through to the 31st January 2015, when this series is scheduled to end.

In addition to broadcasting every safari LIVE on the Internet on wildearth.tv we will also be broadcasting on National Geographic's Big Cat Week website and during Big Cat Week [29th November to 7th December] we will be broadcasting our PM Safari LIVE on NG Wild and National Geographic TV channels in High Definition.
You will be able to ask questions via email and also Tweet using the #safarilive hashtag to help identify the cats we see and ask the hosts questions.

Welcome to the Chula Vista Barn Owls

WildEarth would like welcome the 'OwlCamGuy' and his Owl Channel to our growing group of passionate live wildlife broadcasters. 

The OwlChannel is the home of a family of wild barn owls. The owl box is located on the property of a home in Chula Vista, CA, USA and is known among its followers as The Hideout. It has two cameras inside it. Two other boxes on the property, The Lookout and The Outpost, house outside cameras. Together these four camera allow viewers to follow the coming and going both inside and outside of the HideOut in great detail.

The current pair of Barn Owls, Hans and Didi, tried for the their clutch in March of 2014 but were unfortunately unsuccessful. They are now back and have been seen mating, so we're crossing our fingers for more success in the next breeding season.

The cameras can be viewed on wildearth.tv as well as the OwlChannel's own website. Checking out and liking the OwlChannel's FaceBook page is another good way to easily follow Hans and Didi's continuing adventures.
