Cut Stress by Watching Animals

If you can’t get out into the natural world, let it come to you.

SMITHSONIA­N’S NATIONAL ZOO & CONSERVATI­ON BIOLOGY INSTITUTE

Check out one of the museum’s six live feeds to see black-footed ferrets, cheetah cubs, naked mole-rats, lions or elephants. Volunteers aren’t currently operating the cameras, so the animals may not always be visible. And while naked mole-rats don’t top the cute animals list, it’s still a treat watching them nibble on vegetables. nationalzo­o.si.edu/webcams explore.org/livecams/african-wildlife

SAN DIEGO ZOO

The San Diego Zoo runs live cameras from 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Eastern and rebroadcas­ts the day’s stream at night. There’s something here for everyone: Hippos, baboons, rhinos, tigers, giraffes and more. zoo.sandiegozo­o.org/live-cams

WOLONG GIANT PANDA RESERVE

This breeding center at the Wolong National Nature Reserve in China has live feeds of pandas in 11 different yards. Toggle between the feeds to see the gentle giants playing together, lounging on logs or chowing down on bamboo. explore.org/livecams/panda-bears

KATMAI NATIONAL PARK

If you prefer admiring animals in their native habitats, this national park in Alaska is home to roughly 2,000 brown bears, and its cameras capture them from multiple angles and locations. See them fish for salmon or swim in a river against the backdrop of breathtaki­ng mountains. explore.org/livecams/brown-bears
