National Geographic Channel presents many shows in many themes, including exploration & adventure, history & events, people & places, animals & nature, and science & technology. There are many different online nature shows available on National Geographic Channel. Here is a list of the top 10 online nature shows on National Geographic Channel’s website.
1. Finding Blue Whales. Whales are being tracked south of Baja. The search for the great blue whales’ breeding grounds by scientists continues. Though this is not an easy task, the possibility of finding something worthwhile aboard the Pacific Storm, including the discovery the mating, feeding, or breeding, of blue whales, prompts these scientists onwards. This show is ideal for those that study blue whales and their habitats.
2. Rhino Rescue. A herd of endangered white rhinos are introduced to a new safe habitat, with some from an anti-poaching unit, though some are doubtful if this new safe habitat is what these rhinos need to survive. With elephants, yaks, zebra, and various birds, the rhinos will have many other animals that compete for sustenance from the grasslands. This show is ideal for nature habitat units.
3. African Tiger Fish. The search at Elephant Island, far upriver, will continue with DNA testing of caught African Tiger Fish, with their huge, powerful teeth, to understand the link between this animal and the river that it thrives in. This show is ideal for fishermen and biologists.
4. Inside Darwin’s Mind. This show contemplates naturalists and birds, as Darwin separates the two species of flightless birds, reaching the conclusion that birds use their wings for floating, paddling, running, as well as flight.
5. Kangaroo Kama Sutra. With female kangaroos producing one egg per cycle, the hard part of breeding for most male kangaroos is fending off other male kangaroo rivals. As the sperm travel up the female kangaroos birth channel, chemical secretions lead these sperm towards the female egg. This show is ideal for kangaroo observers.
6. Fire and Rain. Behind a haze of heat, the land distorts. With the promise of relief, a storm approaches. In the anticipation of rain, bolts of lightning set the land on fire! The dying inferno burns itself out, turned away by the wind. After the fire is depleted, the rain begins. The cool downpour brings a carpet of pink lilies across the plains, just a few days after the rain. This show is ideal for nature observers.
7. Hyper Hurricanes. A ring of thunderstorms surround the calm eye of Hurricane Andrew. The sunshine gets through the eye of the hurricane. Onlookers can only watch as Florida is evacuated of hundreds of thousands of civilians. This show is ideal for those that live close enough to observe hurricanes.
8. Surfing the Atmosphere. The fluid nature of the atmosphere is demonstrated by Troy Hartman, as he falls vertically and moves horizontally through the air, changing his trajectory and utilizing his board as a rudder. This show is ideal for those that are interested in surfing the atmosphere.
9. Development of Ocean Waves. Exploring the development of waves in Hawaii, the raw power of the oceans are seen in action. More than just forms of white water, the ocean displays its extraordinary ability of carrying energy around the planet. The process is triggered by the breeze far out in the sea. The first ripples act as sails, growing into deep swells, and carrying the wind across the water. The ocean transfers the energy of the wave to the water in front of it. This movement of energy can carry on, pretty much, infinitely, until the land obstructs this movement. The energy captured from the wind is released near the shore in the form of a large wave, capable of landing with the energy of a 4-ton wave. This show is ideal for ocean wave observers.
10. Origins of the Atmosphere. The atmosphere’s weight is like a layer of water 34 feet deep, covering the Earth. The atmosphere is a combination of gases and fluids, with clouds forming around the tips of mountains. Tornadoes are like giant whirlpools. The tropisphere has waves, reaching over a mile high in Queensland, taking the form of a visible cloud. The atmosphere has a force of over 14 pounds per quare inch pressing down upon our bodies, with the air inside our bodies pressing outwards. Ideal for atmosphere observers.
