If you’re looking for something to keep your kids occupied (or cheer yourself up), the pile of live streams at Explore.org are a perfect way to peek at cute animals and nature scenes from around the world.
The site catalogs hundreds of cameras in all manner of locations. You can watch Great Horned Owls on one stream, rescue kittens on another, and scenic mountain slows or ocean views on yet another.
The streams are cataloged by general subjects like geographic location and type of animals, or themes like cuteness or general mood. Scenes from the International Space Station are cataloged under “Zen Cams”, for example, and the puppy cams are under “Dog Bless You.”
Whether you want to see rescue workers playing with puppies and kittens or gorillas grooming themselves in the wild, there’s a little bit of something for everybody. You can check out the full collection here.
