Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden,Roodekrans Johannesburg, South Africa.
This LIVE camera is dedicated to broadcasting the wild Black Eagles of
Roodekrans from Johannesburg, South Africa. This latest conservation project
focuses on the ambitious task of capturing the breeding cycle of the black
eagles as they attempt to raise a new chick. What makes it so ambitious is
that the nest of this particular pair of eagles is embedded into the sheer
rock face of a 50 metre (164 feet) high cliff. To bring the story to
people’s computer screens would require not only the use of some ground
breaking technology but also an installation team complete with avid and
experienced rock climbers.
The 2013 Black Eagle Cam has added improved streaming quality and glare reduction technology. Infrared LED lights which provide night vision will allow the viewer to witness the family 24 hours a day. Additionally, an omnidirectional microphone will capture the ambient sound of the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden, the massive waterfall adjacent to the nest, and hopefully the high pitched calls of the Black Eagle as well.
