“Dr. Paul Spong has devoted the past 30 years to researching wild orcas in their natural habitat.One night some twenty years ago—when the ocean was still and a full moon lit the sky—Dr. Spong heard the breath of the passing orcas. He felt that if only the whole world could share this moment, it would surely change people’s sense of the world.
This moment inspired the concept of the Nature Network: stations set up in Nature that transmit live images and sound to people around the world. Implementing the concept, which at the time was technically very difficult, becomes much more feasible with the widespread use of the Internet. This site has been conducting a variety of experiments since 2000 towards realizing Nature Network.”
