Spy polar bears, gorillas and bald eagles without leaving your sofa


See Polar Bears in Canada

For wintery scenes that will make you feel all warm inside, watch the bear cam at Wapusk National Park in Canada. Here you can see polar bear cubs tumbling in the snow or shadowing their mothers as they learn the skills needed to survive in the Arctic. If you want to really feel as if you’re there, you can take a ride in the Tundra Buggy that takes you on a journey across the wilderness. If the vehicle comes to an abrupt halt, it’s just a polar bear who has decided to do a vehicle inspection.


Watch Hippos in Kenya

If you want a front row seat to the action, you can’t do any better than watching the Hippo Pool animal cam in Laikipia County, near Lightfoot favourite Ol Lentille. These lumbering beasts love nothing more than taking a dip in the pool then sunning themselves on the shoreline. Elephants, hippos, wildebeest and zebra are all known to quench their thirst at this African oasis.


Spy Bald Eagles in The USA

A trip to the US isn’t complete without seeing a bald eagle – even a virtual one. Check out the bird cam that sits high above the town of Two Harbors. If you log on now, you can get a bird’s eye view of the nest and see the newborn chick inside. You can see the chick’s parents return with fish that they have caught along the Californian shoreline.
