Check out these aquariums' & zoo’s live camera feeds and hang out with the animals..
Free online visits to some zoos and aquariums around the country. One of my favorites is the Shedd Aquarium. Here's the links.
With over 4,000 animals, the San Diego Zoo is one of the largest in the world. It’s currently closed but you can still take a peek at the animals through the zoo’s 10 different live feeds. The zoo streams videos of penguins, baboons, polar bears, apes, koalas, giraffes, owls, elephants, tigers, and condors all day, every day. There are even archived videos of the zoo's pandas .
Aquarium of the Pacific’s underwater cameras. You can watch sharks lurking in the Shark Lagoon, float with the jellyfish of California and Oregon, and explore the famous Blue Corner off the coast of Palau. All you have to do is visit their website and click on the adventure you’d like to take.
Smithsonian National Zoo’s camera - watch giant pandas Tian Tian and Mei Xiang play, eat, and sleep. You’ll be transported into the life of a panda 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and truly learn how they live.
The zoo has two different cameras, so visit their website and pick which one you want to watch.
Monterey Bay Aquarium has a camera that portrays the relaxing life of a sea otter. You’ll see them playing in the water, swimming on their backs, and can even watch live feedings a few times a day. Monterrey Bay also has some other live cameras such as sharks, jellyfish, and the kelp forest so there’s always something for everyone.
Check out Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens’ Facebook Live videos. The zoo is hosting a video series called Home Safari where each episode features some of their adorable animals. My favorite is the Fiona Show about a baby hiipo who is just adorable. This is a photo of her.
You can catch a new episode every day at 3 p.m. ET on the zoo’s Facebook page.
