NatGeo Goes Wild
August 12, 2007 9:00 PM
It's a real zoo online, especially now that the National Geographic Channel's broadband site NGC Wild! is adding a new Wildlife Conservation Society category.
Short-form videos available in the category will highlight the Wildlife Conservation Society's research efforts around the world and at its five zoos in New York City, including the Bronx Zoo.
One set of videos, narrated by actress Glenn Close, features wildlife from Gabon, one of the last unspoiled wild areas in Africa. Another group features video from a "Crittercam" worn by a lioness that allows viewers inside the lives of a lion family.
Since its launch in May, NGC Wild! has streamed more than 500,000 videos, including a record 50,000 on Aug. 7. -- Jon Lafayette
