With attractions, events, and other businesses shutting down across the province, Ontarians are finding new ways to explore without going outside. You may not be able to go to the Canadian Polar Bear Habitat in person, but you can still watch the bears as they explore their snowy homes. Ontario's live polar bear cameras will transport you to an arctic wonderland.
No need to bundle up for this chilly adventure. You can journey to this winter oasis from the warmth of your home.
The Canadian Polar Bear Habitat in Cochrane, Ontario, is home to four fluffy bears named Ganuk, Inukshuk, Henry, and Eddy.
The habitat is usually open to the public, but like many attractions, it has had to close due to the COVID-19 virus.
However, you can still visit the bears thanks to the live cameras available online.
Watch the bears explore their environment in real-time with these four cameras, accessible from the organization's website.
With changing viewpoints of each enclosure, you'll be able to see the bears as they play, nap, and enjoy life.
The bears may not always be in view, as they sometimes prefer to spend time inside. However, you can often spot one of the furry friends on the camera.
With so many venues closed, this is a great way to see one of the province's attractions without leaving your home.
Ripley's Aquarium also has a live camera that will take you deep inside a shark tank.
There are many other places around Ontario that offer virtual tours and online activities, so you can still have some fun in isolation.
Check out the ROM, Casa Loma, and more with these online adventures.
Grab some hot cocoa and embark on this beary cute adventure to the arctic with the touch of a button.
