We've all been there: Sitting (slouchy, actually)... bored on Sabbath... watching a nature video... from like 20 years ago. Nothing wrong with nature videos, but some can really put you to sleep!
Instead, let's say that you have a friend who is on an African safari and is armed with a video camera. Just imagine that this friend of yours emails you videos of the animals he's watching as it happens! To me, it's so much more interesting to see what an animal did just a couple days ago, instead of couple years ago. I don't know about you, but it makes it a lot more real to me.
Earth-Touch is a documentary company that has come up with a quick way to film wild animals in a remote area and show it to the world within 48 hours (whenever possible). It's actually kinda cool 'cause they film all these animals, from lions to seals to caterpillars in high definition so that quality-wise, it looks really good! Earth-Touch edits their videos lightly so that you're basically seeing what the cameraman saw through his camera lens just a few days ago!
The film crews that are with these animals don't script their videos (which aren't long), and post field reports just about everyday on the Earth-Touch website. The website gets updated very often, so there's a pretty good chance they'll have something new for you to watch each Saturday! No more slouching for you! ;)
3 ways to see God's creatures as filmed by Earth-Touch:
1) By visiting the Earth-Touch website
2) By subscribing to the videos on iTunes
3) By subscribing to the videos through RSS
There are several different kinds of video series offered:
• Featured videos
• Wildlife Highlights
• Marine Channel

• Kids Channel
Some of the videos are available with or without commentary and in high definition or standard definition. Note: As with a lot of nature videos, some videos may be too gruesome for some younger kids.
