The best wildlife livestreams to watch around the world

Thanks to the wonders of technology and the dedication of conservationists, it's now possible to watch a range of wildlife around the world via webcams from the comfort of your home. Here is an extensive list of species you can livestream, including eagles, owls, puffins, hummingbirds, elephants and manatees and how to watch.

Red-tailed hawk.

There is a huge variety of animal livestreams available online – pandas, puppies, kittens, donkeys, sheep and more. We have focussed on wild animals (including wildlife rehabilitation) in our comprehensive list of wildlife webcams to livestream around the world.

Some of these cameras are seasonal, for example they may only be active during the nesting season. However we have decided to include them here anyway, and will endeavour to regularly update which cameras are online or offline.

A few of these cameras have associated citizen science projects running in conjunction with them, encouraging viewers to identify and record the species seen. Details can be found on those websites.
