It is said to be the world's largest indoor aquatic habitat with more marine life than any other aquarium
Let's face it, people. We're going to be stuck inside our houses, and be practicing social distancing for the next few weeks. While you might feel like tearing your hair out, remember you are not alone in this. Yet, you can still make the most of it, and explore the world virtually. From museums to rides, there's a lot you can tick off your list from the comfort of your home. Although the Georgia Aquarium is closed to its visitors to curb the spread of COVID-19, and if you love all things marine, you can now observe them through their live cams, reports Narcity.
Regarded as the largest aquarium in the world, the Atlanta-based marine display is home to amazing sea creatures that are spread over a massive one million cubic feet of water. You can now view their live-streams of their exhibits that include fascinating marine life, like piranhas, sea lions, beluga whales, penguins, and jellyfish among many others. It is the perfect way to take a quick break from working at home or to unwind at the end of the day and watch the myriad of fish from your home.
From stingrays to whale sharks and more, there's never a dull moment. The quality of the live stream is high definition and so clear that you might just forget you're at home watching them from your phone or computer. The Beluga Whale live cams provide oodles of entertainment to the viewers as they swim and play around. Watching the marine life will also give you a sense of peace during this tumultuous time.

In spring, the Georgia Aquarium family will welcome a baby Beluga calf, and this has gotten people excited all over the world. Apart from the above-mentioned sea animals, you can also enjoy watching California sea otters, African penguins, puffins which will make you feel like you have taken a deep dive in the Great Barrier Reef. People tuning into the live cam might also encounter various species of Jellyfish as they keep swimming gracefully in their vibrant blue habitats. Since its inauguration in 2005, the aquarium has been visited by around 18 million people from all over the globe, and even holds a record in the Guinness Book for having more aquatic life than any other aquarium.
Similarly, zoos have also followed the same idea and have begun live streaming. For example, the Cincinnati Zoo has introduced a new Facebook Live "Home Safari" show that is scheduled to air on weekdays at 3 PM ET, and each episode will feature a new animal every week.
