Dr. Paul Spong has devoted the past 30 years to researching wild orca in their natural habitat in Johnstone Strait, Canada.
One night some twenty years ago, when the ocean was still and a full moon lit the sky, Dr. Spong heard the breath of the passing orca. He felt that if only the whole world could share this moment, it would surely change people's sense of the world.
This moment inspired the concept of the Nature Network: stations set up in Nature that transmit live images and sound to people around the world. Implementing the concept, which at the time was technically very difficult, has become much more feasible with the widespread use and development of the Internet. Since 2000, this project has been conducting a variety of website-based experiments in the process of realizing Nature Network.
