Let’s slow things down

Here at WWF, we want to do our bit by looking after our community and sharing the inspiration and joy provided by nature. We know things are stressful and uncertain at the moment, so we encourage you to take a few minutes to soak up the calm and relaxation in our top slow TV videos. We hope these leave you feeling inspired by the beauty in this world and put a smile on your face for the rest of the day.

1. Welcome to the world, hatchlings!

Hawksbill turtles can spend hours finding the perfect spot and digging their nest. Around  six weeks later, the hatchlings climb their way up from a roughly 45 cm-deep nest and make their way to the ocean.


2. It’s raining (sweet potatoes and carrots)


Did someone say five minutes of brush-tailed rock wallabies eating carrots? We’re in!

In partnership with the NSW Government's #SavingOurSpecies program, WWF supporters recently helped provide much needed supplementary feed for bushfire-impacted brush-tailed rock-wallaby populations in the Blue Mountains. Check out these guys enjoying the spoils.

 

3. Minke whale feeding time

Scientists in Antarctica attached a camera to a minke – one of the most poorly understood of all the whale species. In an incredible bonus for researchers, the camera (which adheres with suction cups) slid down the side of the animal – but stayed attached – providing remarkable video of the way it feeds. Check out the whale cam in action!

 

4. A turtl-y great view

Want to see what life is like under the sea? Come swimming with a graceful hawksbill turtle in the Great Barrier Reef.  Australia has some of the largest remaining nesting populations of these magnificent creatures. 

 


5. Penguin parade

Each evening, Phillip Island’s little penguins return ashore after a day’s fishing. Thank you to our friends at Phillip Island Nature Park for sharing this heartwarming footage.
