Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, quarantine can’t stop us from exploring the world and seeing all kinds of weird and wonderful beasts. With some of the world’s most famous zoos and wildlife centres setting up webcams and virtual experiences, you can now go on your own virtual global safari, and get up close and personal with Japanese snow monkeys, beluga whales and many more fantastic creatures!

Why not get the kids together for an evening and explore them together on a big screen if you’ve got one? It’s sure to be a big hit with little adventurers, and a chance to see animals they may never have encountered before.

San Diego Zoo

San Diego Zoo is one of the most famous zoos in the world for a reason. It boasts a huge variety of animals from everywhere around the world and now has a host of live streams from different enclosures including the baboon cam, the penguin cam, the panda cam and many more. This is a great one to check out for sheer variety!

Melbourne Zoo

Another highly esteemed zoo, Melbourne Zoo has set up cameras at various points throughout the zoo. But of its many cams, the most popular one right now is the one focused on the baby snow leopards. The cubs were born in late January and all have unique markings. You can check them out every morning when they’re being fed.

They also feature the occasional livestream with echidnas, koalas and baboons. Visit Melbourne Zoo online here.

Japan’s Jigokudani Yaen-koen

For a unique treat, check out this Japanese livestream that features the renowned wild snow monkeys. They very much enjoy hanging out and having relaxing baths in the natural hot springs. We wish we could look as serene as this!
