Wild Earth TV - Live from the African Bush

It took me a while to write about Wild Earth TV because I got hooked into watching the great wildlife videos on the site. Wild Earth TV provides live video feeds of animals in Africa. As I write this the feed is showing a giraffe eating. While watching the video feeds, registered users can chat with each other about what they're seeing. If the video feed is not live when you visit the website, you can choose from any number of recorded videos. I have embedded below, a video of water buffaloes.



Applications for Education
Wild Earth TV could be a great place for your students to see African wildlife. Students could watch Wild Earth TV as part of a lesson on wildlife habit and make observations about the habit and foods that various animals prefer.

Another live wildlife video feed you may want to consider is National Geographic's WildCam Africa.
