This Koala Livestream Is the Cutest Thing on the Internet — and There's Even a Cuddle Train Camera
Starting to feel the stress (and squeeze) of hunkering down at home for the foreseeable future? Us too. We have just the thing to ease your worry.
Although Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world’s oldest and largest koala sanctuary, is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the cuteness continues online. The Brisbane-based sanctuary has installed eight different koala cams across its 45-acre property for nonstop streaming of happy koalas going about their happy days.
Whether you tune into the semi-outdoor Koala Forest cam, where many koala mums reside with their joeys; the Jumping Koala Joeys cam, where you’ll find energetic year-old koalas who have recently been weaned off their mothers; or the Lone Pine Koala Train cam, where — yes — a “koala cuddle train” is a regular occurrence, you’re sure to find a soothing sight, courtesy of one of nature’s cutest creatures.
The cameras are on 24 hours per day, so you never have to miss a moment of the koalas’ aww-inducing antics, but if you need a late-night pick-me-up, tune in from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m. EST (12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Brisbane time) to catch koala feeding time. Koalas love them some fresh-cut eucalyptus leaves.
And if you want to hang out with other adorable animals while you’re stuck at home, check out these live zoo cams featuring pandas, giraffes, beluga whales, and more.
