Thanks To Live Cams, You Can Enjoy Live Videos of Puppies, Bears, Giraffes, and More Animals

There are numerous species of animals on the planet, some easily accessible, while others would require a lot of planning just to see. If you’re an animal lover, here’s some good news… Live Cams. These cameras are placed in strategic positions in different enclosures and even in the wild to capture incredible moments from a wide variety of animals. 

Take a look at some of them from across the world; perhaps, you’ll be opportune to visit these places one day.

Jelly Cam

If you’re anything like SpongeBob SquarePants, then the sight of a jellyfish must be one that is sure to make you smile. The Jelly Cam at Vancouver Aquarium features the Pacific Sea Nettles [1].

These incredible creatures have a distinct umbrella shape which becomes flattened when swimming. This feature with their lobes gives the appearance of an eight-pointed star to them when they’re swimming. It’s a truly relaxing sight to witness [2].

Decorah Bald Eagles

In Decorah, a city in the northeast corner of Iowa, a pair of bald eagles has nested in the Decorah Trout Hatchery for over 10 years.

The Decorah Eagle Cam provides live streams and videos of the majestic birds. The birth of 3 eaglets was perhaps one of the most incredible moments for them, and it was live-streamed for an audience of millions of people [3].

April the Giraffe 

At the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, live a pretty famous giraffe and her family. Ever since a live feed of her enclosure began in February 2017, the reticulated giraffe known as April has grown quite popular.

The birth of her fourth child, Tajiri, was witnessed by millions of people online. The birth of her last calf, Aziri, was also live-streamed to a massive audience.

The Live Cam continues to capture her so fans can ‘drop-in’ for a virtual visit [4].

Sea Otters at the Seattle Aquarium

Adaa, Lootas, Aniak, and Mishka – the ‘Fantastic four’ as they are fondly called are the northern Sea otters who call the Seattle Aquarium their home.

In the wild, sea otters typically live in Rocky coastal habitats and often hold hands while sleeping so they don’t get carried away by the current. 

Tune in to the Seattle Aquarium Live Cam anytime from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST and watch the otters enjoy a mini version of their natural habitats [5].

Kitten Rescue

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t think of kittens as adorable animals. Kitten Rescue is a non-profit charity organization that sees to the welfare of cats in Los Angeles, California.

You can share in on the cuteness by checking out the Kitten Rescue kitten cam. They even have a room for just nursing mothers with litters of kittens. Chances are you will fall in love with one (or 10) of them and decide to adopt them. The kitten rescue team encourages you to do just that.

Also, if you’re confused about how to take care of kittens, they have a Kitten Care Handbook to help you out [6].

Pacific Walrus Beach

As the best-known WISGS (the Walrus Islands State Game Sanctuary) island, the Round Island in Alaska is one of the largest haul-out sites for Pacific walrus in North America.

The live cam captures thousands of them resting on the Rocky shorelines during the summer. If you tune in, you will also be entertained by seabirds such as puffins, and kittiwakes, as well as Steller sea lions and more [7].

Giant Pandas

The National Park zoo in Washington, D.C. is home to a pair of giant pandas, Tian Tian and Mei Xiang. They were flown in from the China Research and Conservation Center for the Giant Panda, Sichuan, China in 2000.

The pandas, with their distinctive black and white coats, are considered national treasures in China, and if you watch the live cam of the national zoo, these adorable creatures will most likely become treasured by you as well. Check out the panda cams here.

What’s more? They had a cub in 2005 – Tai Shan who has, however, been transferred to China. Watch these bears frolic in the grass, and chew on bamboo sticks and you’ll want to thank the zoo for setting up the cameras [8]. 

Puppy Playroom

At the Warrior Canine Connection, recovering warriors help to train service dogs for the benefits of other veterans. This they do by the provision of a human/animal bond which has been known to be highly beneficial for both parties. 

After they are born, the puppies begin their journey at the “Healing Quarters” of the Puppy Enrichment Center before being placed in homes with loving “Puppy Parents.” 

The puppy playroom cam provides you with cute videos of these puppies having a great time. Also, most of them have Facebook pages where you can also check up on them [9].

Brooks Falls Bearcam

Brooks Falls Wildlife Viewing Platform in Brooks camp has webcam feeds to bring you incredible footage of the Katmai brown bears.

The best time to tune into the webcam is during the daytime in July as this is when you will most likely catch the bears fishing. You will be thrilled to witness the Sockeye salmon jumping the falls and the ingenious technique the Katmai bears use in ‘fishing’ [10].

Africam

Discovery Channel and National Geographic are amazing for watching and learning about animals in Africa and across the world. But, you know what will be an even more intense experience? … going on a safari to Africa. Sadly, that might not be a reality for most people. 

However, despair not, you could go on a virtual safari to Africa with these six live safari cameras from African. The HD cameras with their incredible soundscape create the semblance of you being on an actual safari in Africa.

The Africams include the live cam at Kruger National Park, Tembe Elephant Park, Nkorho Bush Lodge South Africa, Pilanesberg National Park, Naledi Private Game Reserve, and the Olifants River [11]. 

Technology has made life so much easier and better for us. With a good smartphone or personal computer and high-speed internet connection, you can tune into these cameras and from the comfort of your bedroom, go on a virtual trip around the world. 

So, what are you waiting for? Give it a try today and have a great time with these astonishing creatures.
