Hang out With Animals at the Virtual Zoo While Staying Indoors

To provide quality entertainment for those spending (LOTS of) time indoors at home, many museums and other cultural institutions have made virtual tours of their facilities available for free viewing online.

For all the animal-lovers or parents of them out there that miss going to the zoo, this one’s for you! Many different zoos have started making live streams available as well! This is a great way to “go out” and have fun without actually stepping outside.

The Benefits of Cute Animal Live Streams

For everyone spending a lot of time inside and working from home, live streams of cute animals might be just the right thing to provide a bit of distraction and enjoyment. According to research done by psychology students at Hiroshima University in Japan in 2012, taking breaks to look at images of cute animals can improve people’s work performance and enhance their focus on details. Besides enhancing work performance, it’s known that images of adorable animals also help relieve stress and relax. That’s why these live streams are such a great option.

Live Stream From the Zoo

There are numerous zoos that have set up live-streaming cameras in certain areas of their enclosures. For those who love aquatic life, the Georgia Aquarium offers a live stream of their Beluga whales that are known as the friendliest whales in the ocean. A live stream is also offered by the Monterey Aquarium that includes the coral reef, sharks, penguins, and a jelly cam. Another great option is the Atlanta Zoo panda cam. Pandas and their adorable antics are always fun to watch. Pandas can also be seen in the San Diego Zoo cameras, along with apes, elephants, koalas, and more. If anyone is interested in seeing giraffes, a rhino yard, and gorilla habitats, the Houston Zoo’s live stream is available at any time!

Taking a few moments to enjoy these live streams can certainly help shake away the monotony and recharge our batteries, so be sure to look up your favorite zoological parks and check out their live cams!
