Live Animal Cams Bring The Natural World In To Your Home
Millions of people all over the world have an interest in wildlife whether it is about a specific animal or simply the topic of wildlife in general. Wildlife is a very visual subject and many people explore their interest via photographs and recorded video. However, there is nothing better than watching animals in their natural habitat going about their business in real time. Steaming live wildlife cameras have made the viewing and studying of these animals so much easier and a whole lot more pleasurable.
Wildlife tourism has experienced incredible growth in recent years as more and more people want to see rare and exotic animals in their natural habitat. Wildlife tourism is a key part of the tourism industries in numerous countries around the world including many African and South American countries, Australia, India, Canada, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Malaysia and the Maldives. There are now many companies offering customised tour packages and safaris within the wildlife tourism sector to cater for this ever growing demand.
Wildlife safaris and customised packages in this industry are often expensive and beyond the financial means of most people. This is one of the reasons why so many people now watch live wildlife cameras to enjoy the natural world from the comfort of their own homes. All you need is a reasonable broadband connection and then you can watch pretty much any creature of your choosing online in real time.
Many zoos, safari parks and aquariums have set up live animal cams to give individuals globally the opportunity to enjoy their wildlife online. This is also a great way of advertising their businesses. If you want to broadcast your own live wildlife cam to the world, it is easier than ever before and very cost effective whether you are an established wildlife business or just a private individual. You simply require a reasonable wildlife camera, a computer and a decent broadband connection. You then need to choose a company to host your cameras data. Two of the world’s leading companies in this field are UStream and LiveStream, who offer both free and paid live streaming plans. The free version is paid for by advertisements that are shown prior to your live feed playing.
If you just love wildlife there are plenty of sites online that give you the opportunity to watch the live animal cam of your choice. A site that I look at regularly is http://www.wildlifewebcams.co.uk. They offer a live wildlife cam directory showing a wide variety of animals from all over the world. What’s more, they also give more detailed information about all the animals shown including links to authority sites and news articles.
If you are a broadcaster and are looking to get your live wildlife cameras out to a global audience, have a serious look at both UStream and LiveStream.
