“National Geographic Crittercam: the World Through Animal Eyes”
is open at Wildlife Experience, 10035 S. Peoria (at Lincoln),
Parker through Jan. 5, 2011. A small scientific video and
data-gathering tool was developed that can be safely attached to
wild animals, allowing us to see their world from their
perspective. This 6,000-square-foot exhibit visits seals and sea
lions, a great white shark, sea turtles, whales and penguins, plus
beginning developments in the terrestrial version of the study with
bears and lions. (The Crittercam had to pass a baby lion’s chew toy
test). The final part of the exhibit focuses on Crittercam
technology, developed by National Geographic marine biologist Greg
Marshall, with hands-on activities. Visit thewildlifeexperience.com
