Armchair Travel

Travel plans may be off, but armchair travel can take you even farther. Where will you visit today? Here are some ideas from Librarian Kate!

  1. Take a space journey and visit NASA’s image galleries!
  2. Or visit the depths of the ocean at The Deep Sea.
  3. How about museums all over the world? If you want more, using the terms “free virtual museum tours” will bring up further options.
  4. Check out how the penguins are doing at Jenkinson’s Aquarium in Point Pleasant by viewing the livestream on their website.
  5. Take a look at the bald eagles at Duke Farms in Hillsborough.
  6. Cape May Zoo employees will conduct a virtual tour every weekday, starting at 11:30. Each tour features a short clip of a different animal and an education lesson about it.
  7. Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden employees will highlight different animals at 3 p.m. each day on their Facebook page.
  8. San Diego Zoo has various live webcams, from koalas to tigers.
  9. Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute has live webcams of its naked mole rats, giant pandas, and more.
  10. Ocean County Parks & Recreation: The naturalist staff will broadcast some of the department’s animals in the Nature Center displays in the future. Check the Facebook page for updates. What additional gems have you discovered in your explorations?
