Tomorrow with Mike Fitz: Death in Nature

Many of explore.org’s most popular cameras show unfiltered views of wildlife. As wild beings, animals often demonstrate resiliency in the face of hardship, but they sometimes encounter challenges they cannot overcome. Some of the most powerful and moving live cam moments are associated with death.

Join me tomorrow, March 20, at 1 p.m. Pacific (4 p.m. Eastern) for a live chat about death in the animal world. Bring your questions or submit them in advance in the comments below. Tune in on our Live Events page.

Watching an animal die can be a powerful experience. Death conjures strong emotions like loss and pain, but it also provides lessons in survival and raises difficult questions about the appropriateness of human intervention.

Keep exploring,

Mike Fitz
Your resident naturalist for explore.org
