Get up close with exotic animals and birds without leaving your couch

Can you imagine being a foot away from three panda siblings enjoying themselves on a swing? Or swimming with manatees, or watching a polar bear take a leisurely walk in the Tundra region. Sure, you can always watch National Geographic, but can you see the drama unfold live? Explore.org has an exhaustive list of live cams that take you close to nature in a way that seems otherwise impossible.

Sustained by viewers’ contributions, Explore.org is the world’s largest live nature cam network, which virtually takes you to natural habitats of animals and birds. This makes you privy to wildlife in the vast lands of Africa to aquatic wonders of Australian reefs to animals thriving in the snow on Pacific islands. Several internationally popular sanctuaries and massive aquariums are part of the project too, and the visuals promise to stun you. Bonus, cat and dog rescue videos!

Explore’s ‘Zen cams’ make for great viewing to induce afternoon naps (hey, I know you take them too). Expect soft meditation music with visuals of great white sharks swimming in the ocean, or enjoy an out of the world (literally!) experience with the unique NASA cam which streams the Earth’s orbit.

A boon for children stuck indoors (and by extension, for mothers), Explore cams can take kids up close to honeycombs buzzing with worker bees, or they can just watch four alligators sunning themselves in a swamp in Florida. For everyone feeling a bit down due to the current gloomy situation, nature promises to give your mood a good boost. And now, excuse us as we go back to watching our favourite Canadian bisons get into a water fight.
