Like many activities around the world, the Monterey Aquarium in California was forced to implement containment measures. To participate in the fight against the spread of Covid-19, the facility will remain closed until April 8, but for our good luck, we will be able to visit it online thanks to 10 cameras installed in the enclosure.
Specifically, the live views feature its sea otter tank (a visitor favorite), seaweed forest, aviary, penguins, open ocean tank, jellyfish tanks and beautiful live views of Monterey Bay surrounding the aquarium. Free webcams are available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monterey time on the aquarium’s Facebook page, YouTube channel and website.
If you’re lucky, you’ll even get to watch the animals being fed. Although most of the more than 500 Monterey Aquarium staff work from home, key employees for the animals’ survival remain to maintain the building’s operations and care for its inhabitants. These employees include safety teams, maintenance workers, and workers who feed and care for the animals.
A great way to relax in quarantine, observe life inside one of the world’s largest aquariums and keep yourself entertained in a different way. Here are some of the cameras from the Monterey Aquarium below >
