Explore: Pearls of the Planet

Get ready to witness astounding sights and adorable animals with Pearls of the Planet, a library of live cameras from animal sanctuaries, research centers, and conservation projects from around the world. On the page linked above, visitors can see live footage of amazing wild (and sometimes domesticated) animals and entrancing ecosystems, organized into thematic groups. There are more than 60 livecam themes to check out, arranged in alphabetical order for easy browsing. Highlights include "Project Puffin," "Owl Research Institute," "International Wolf Center," and "Aquarium of the Pacific," among others. Once users have selected a theme to visit, they will be taken to a page with live camera footage. There, readers can click "Facts" for details about the footage being viewed or scroll for information about the camera location and to see photos taken on-site. There are also links to blog entries and related content. Visitors are sure to find something to enjoy, whether searching for meme-able moments or just a bit of zen in the workday. Pearls of the Planet is operated by Explore (previously featured in the 06-17-2011 Scout Report), a multimedia organization dedicated to documenting extraordinary causes. In addition to live camera footage, Explore's website includes a "Blog," "Newsletter," and more than 250 documentary "Films," which can be accessed through links at the bottom of the page. Follow Explore on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (@exploreorg on all platforms).
