"It was more significant than anything I've seen before," De Grazio said.
Climbers are aware of the risks of the sport and that granite erosion takes place on El Capitan and in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, he said.
Since 2011, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has received 2.8 million views on its three most popular animal cams: the sea otter exhibit, the kelp forest tank and the aquarium’s vast open ocean exhibit.
“We want people to be amazed and inspired by the animals,” said aquarium spokesman Ken Peterson.
Longtime climbers of Yosemite National Park's iconic El Capitan said Thursday they've never seen a rock fall like the one "the size of an apartment building" that plunged down the vertical face of the stunning rock formation, killing a British climber and seriously injuring his British climbing partner.
"I've seen smaller avalanches and smaller falls before where you would just see a tiny dust cloud, this was covering a good portion of the rock in front of us," said John De Grazio of YExplore Yosemite Adventures, who has led climbers scaling El Capitan for 12 years.
On Wednesday at noon, biologists will be releasing three condors on camera that were raised in captivity.
The solar-powered “condor cam” allows the public to watch the huge, vulture-like birds feeding, grooming and flying in real time, and enables scientists to monitor them more efficiently.
It’s the latest example of how inexpensive video technology and high-speed Internet connections are changing the way the public interacts with wildlife — from sea otters at the Monterey Bay Aquarium to pandas at Washington, D. “We put the camera right on top of one of the main feeding areas so we could zoom down and get identification of each individual,” said Kelly Sorenson, executive director of the Ventana Wildlife Society, a nonprofit that has worked to bring condors back from the brink of extinction.
But on Monday, with some high-tech help, the bird watching got a lot easier.
The first camera to capture live streaming video of condors in the wild was turned on in the remote hills of Big Sur.
They posted pictures on social media showing billowing white dust moments after the crash.
