Ambitious Europe Wide 'Nature Live' Hosted by RTE on Sunday May 6
03 May 2018 :
Ireland will host 'Nature LIVE', an ambitious new concept in wildlife programming as it broadcasts live to Europe from the banks of Dublin’s River Liffey.

Derek Mooney and Colin Stafford-Johnson host the show in Ireland.

Anchored by RTÉ presenter Derek Mooney, with wildlife film-maker Colin Stafford-Johnson presenting from the Blasket Islands, this one-hour television programme hosted by RTÉ in partnership with other broadcasters will feature some of Europe's extraordinary wildlife - beamed in live by satellite from the continent's most remote locations - from polar bears in the Norwegian Arctic to flamingos in southern Spain, and from basking sharks off the west of Ireland, to wolves in Slovenia. Like a Eurovision for wildlife, the show will broadcast live from seven breathtakingly beautiful locations all around the continent.

From the frozen Scandinavian Tundra to the mountains of Spain’s southern Atlantic coast; from Slovenia’s glacial lakes to Amsterdam skyscrapers; from Romania’s remote Carpathian mountains to Ireland’s historic Blasket Islands - Europe is home to a stunning variety of birds, animals and marine life, and this unique event will show viewers what is happening this very minute in wildlife habitats right across the continent as leading wildlife broadcasters from Ireland, Spain, Netherlands, Slovenia, Romania and Norway will be standing by their satellite dishes, ready to beam pictures of nature as it happens.

The public can take part by sharing their own pictures and videos of nature and wildlife using #naturelive from wherever they live in Europe. The day kicks off with the Dawn Chorus, which will air on RTÉ Radio 1 from 12am through to 7am. Millions of birds will join in nature’s symphony broadcast live from over 20 locations across Europe.
