The Internet and mass proliferation of capable devices has allowed almost anyone to broadcast live video. Many have taken advantage of it in the form of things like Periscope and Facebook Live, using it to broadcast behind the scenes footage and discuss trending topics, but Explore has used it for a rather neat purpose.
I'm a fan of live video. The immediacy of it feels more intimate, the real-time interactions feel more meaningful, and the fact that it can't be edited lends it a certain je ne sais quoi. Explore is "a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes" and features a huge network of live nature cameras. They're currently broadcasting from Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, where over 100 brown bears come to catch and eat sockeye salmon. It's a great alternative to seeing photos and videos after the fact, and in my opinion, it lends an excitement and immediacy to the affair that draws the viewer in.
