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.(Source)

The black eagles are wild and the botanical garden you are watching LIVE is their home. The mountainous area where they nest each year is under threat of urban development. You can help by signing the petition below:

UPDATE Aug 21: There are now 2 eggs on the nest.

    How can they set up devices like this without harrassing the eagles? I know they need to be recognized as endangered, but at what cost?
