We’ve all had fun with virtual visits to an amazing array of museums, theatrical performances, and concerts from around the world. But those of us who yearn to get out and see some farm animals and rich soil may still be wanting. Take heart…we have some terrific live FarmCams lined up just for you!
If you are watching late at night, the animals may be in bed, but you can come back and try them in the morning.
Farm Sanctuary – Watkins Glen, New York
Farm Sanctuary is a rescue, education and advocacy shelter located in New York state’s Finger Lakes Region. The farm is home to over 800 rescues that include cows, turkeys, pigs, sheep, and many other critters. Check out some of their cams below.
Sheep Barn Cam
The Kentucky Equine Adoption Center – Nicholasville, Kentucky
The Kentucky Equine Adoption Center is a safe haven for horses that have been abused, neglected, or surrendered by owners who can no longer care for them. This pasture is absolutely beautiful, too!
The Donkey Barn – Service Dog Project – Ipswich, Massachusetts
The Service Dog Project raises and trains Great Danes as service dogs for people with mobility issues. In addition to that wonderful work, they have a barn and pasture for very special rescue donkeys. Enjoy this live cam from the Donkey Barn!
If you want to see more animal cams, the ones that are featured on YouTube we have shared here are all made possible by EXPLORE, a nature cam network that offers an amazing selection of live cameras of animals from around the world. You can visit their site here. One of my favorites is the Redwood Grove Condor Nest cam located in Big Sur, California. Amazing!!

This Site Was Inspired By An Interest in Protecting the Environment:
We had the privilege and joy of learning from Dr. Charlie Stine who instilled a love for the natural world through incredible field trips with the Johns Hopkins Odyssey Certificate program in Environmental Studies. At the time, the program was endorsed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Sadly, after Dr. Stine retired, the program was phased out. We hope that we honor his legacy by shining a bright light on environmental issues and sharing good news about the success of various conservation programs when possible.
