100,000 Belugas Whale-Come You To Their Livestream Where They Explore The Ocean.

With countless wonders that take place under the sea, it’s simply not possible for us to witness them all. Thanks to folks at places like Polar Bear International and Explore.org, however, we’re able to get glimpses into worlds we’d otherwise miss through the use of livestreams. In fact, a popular one that focuses on belugas is live at this very moment!

According to Polar Bears International, summertime is when two-thirds of the beluga population temporarily migrate to southern Canadian waters. That means there are around 100,000 whales making their way to their new home. They choose this location because it provides them with ice-free, shallow waters, something that is needed for the safety of their newborns.

The cameras needed to capture these magnificent creatures were set up the weekend of July 15, just in time for Artic Sea Ice Day.

“Arctic sea ice regulates our planet’s climate and is essential for polar bears and humans alike,” Krista Wright, executive director of Polar Bears International said. “… As we expand our operations across the Arctic, we believe it’s more important than ever to work together to slow global warming and preserve Arctic sea ice along with the creatures that depend on it.”

Watch the beloved beluga whales explore the ocean in the livestream below.
