June 2nd 2015 | The 2015 Cahow nesting season has been a great success with 57 chicks hatching and now starting to fledge out to sea.
Over the next few nights the LookBermuda | LookFilms team will shadow Terrestrial Conservation officer Jeremy Madeiros as he conducts Nocturnal Expeditions to observe as the chicks leave their burrows at night to exercise and imprint on their surroundings. It is this rarely seen imprinting process that will allow them to return to the exact location of their nesting site after 3 to 5 years at sea.
The team will be beta testing new custom built above ground infrared cameras and lighting and if all goes as planned will be live-streaming the resulting footage on to the internet in realtime via the CahowCam live feed which can be seen below and here:
Viewers who would like to follow these Expeditions in realtime should check back to this page on the nights of the 2nd/3rd and 4th/5th of June and optionally subscribe to our Newsletter and select the alert notification option for when these streams go live.
CahowCam Educational Broadcasts | Later this week the team will be beta testing its new multi camera live switching setup to live stream Jeremy Madeiros conducting a Cahow health assessment that will be viewed in realtime in classrooms across the island. This will serve as a test for the Interactive Live Educational Broadcasts that are being developed for next season. Interested teachers and students should subscribe to our Newsletter selecting the appropriate options.
