You no longer need to leave the comfort of your home to get up close and personal with Canadian wildlife, thanks to explore.org’s livestreams. The vessel ‘Beluga Boat’ allows you to watch the migration of over 55000 Beluga whales from Arctic waters to the Churchill River Estuary in Manitoba.
The Beluga Boat has multiple cameras which livestream the movements of the whales all day throughout the summer months when the beluga’s come to raise their calves and feed in the warmer waters. Viewers can follow along various pods—which travel in groups up to 25—on their journey, and observe the behaviour and dynamics of these mesmerizing creatures.
