explore.org is the largest live nature network in the world, streaming nearly 150 live nature cameras on 4 continents, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. July and August kicks off two initiatives that their millions of viewers love - the post-hibernation return of the Brown Bears live in Katmai National Park. And, some incredible Shark live streaming footage that celebrates the truth and beauty of their misunderstood role in the world. Far from fearsome creatures, they're vital to the health of the ocean and world's ecosystem.
"explore.org is a welcome family and purity is our currency. In turbulent times, we're an oasis of peace to find yourself, meet others, and learn and grow." -- Founder, Charlie Annenberg Weingarten
