Monterey Bay Aquarium
886 Cannery Row, Monterey
The live Open Sea exhibit cam flows live footage of schooling anchovies, gliding hammerheads and girthy bluefin tuna – from above. A young marine-lover stares up at a leopard shark, while a link provides access to all sorts of resources to recruit your own ocean advocates. An electric orange scorpionfish shows off the toxic dorsal spine that helped earn it a spot in National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore’s PhotoArk project. And those are just three recent posts on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Tumblr account, one of the best portals to the profound oceanic riches found on MBA’s wider website, including links to Seafood Watch, feeding schedules, exhibit updates and the whole live cam fam’ – with the jelly cam, the kelp-forest cam, aviary cam, sea otter cam and penguin cam.
