The white sand beaches of Destin and Santa Rosa Beach are well suited for the annual turtle migration ad nesting season. This year, we get a great insight with a live stream camera with infra red lighting to witness the hatching.
Turtles hatch during a full moon cycle, so the case of the Henderson Park Inn nesting in Destin Florida should result in a hatch this year of August 13th. FLV Hosting is a leading provider of live streams, and has supplied the live stream as a cross promotion with 30a Television and Henderson Park Inn.
“We are excited to be able to bring live stream technology to such a wonderful nature event,” said Mike McGuinness, VP Sales at FLV Hosting. “This is an event that not many people get to experience during their lifetime, so we are very pleased to be able to make it accessible to everyone, regardless of their location.”
A super close up of the turtle nest is not completely practical to ensure the safety of the turtles, and the infra red camera and stream will not affect their proper hatching. Sometimes bright lights near the beach confuse turtles, who mistake the lights for the full moon, so head inland instead of the Gulf of Mexico. An infrared camera is used as it will not affect the turtles as they hatch and rush to the sea : Live Webcam Turtle Watch in Florida at Henderson Park Inn

Sicily covers the largest land area at 25,708 km and currently has just over five million inhabitants. It is also the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea.
Sicily is directly adjacent to the Italian region of Calabria, via the Strait of Messina to the east. The early Roman name for Sicily was Trinacria, alluding to its triangular shape. Sicily has been noted for two millennia as a grain-producing territory. The original inhabitants of Sicily were three defined groups, the most prominent and by far the earliest of which was the Sicani. Historical evidence has been discovered in the form of cave drawings by the Sicani, dated from the end of the Pleistocene Epoch, around 8000 BC, and is correlated with extinction of dwarf hippos and dwarf elephants.
Mount Etna, located in the east, is the only volcano on mainland Sicily and is the tallest active volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world. Sicily has its own unique culture, especially with regard to the arts, cuisine, architecture and language. More webcam from Italy : Here
In this fast paced world of blue tooths and blackberries, we can get just about anything we want, at anytime. You can buy shoes, get directions, find phone numbers, update your Face book page, grab sport scores or witness live birth. Witness live birth?
“It’s been months of very impatiently waiting,” Terri Petter with Wolves-Woods and Wildlife said. Petter has set up a webcam in a spot where one of her wolves, Kootenai, will give birth near Farmington.
“She’s getting big. She’s starting to pull her hair out of her stomach to make her bed and we have a box all set up. It’s her den. It’s all clean and ready to go and the camera’s set up,” Petter explained. Read the rest of this entry »
Inside view : Webcam images are sent back more or less daily at roughly the same time of day. One webcam (daily image) is pointed north at the Arthur Clarke Mars Greenhouse located at the Haughton Mars Project Research Station on Devon island in the Canadian high arctic, in Nunavut close to the North Pole. This greenhouse was donated by SpaceRef Interactive, Inc. in 2002. Another webcam shows images from inside the greenhouse where plants are now growing: Webcam images and more webcams from Polar World
