Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo Tiger Cubs Webcam


Lunch is over, but the day still drags on.

You thought a fourth cup of coffee would give you the pep to make it to 5:30 p.m., but now you aren’t so hopeful. Thankfully,  Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo has something more powerful than a punch of caffeine: an adorable webcam live-streaming its new baby Amur tiger cubs.

The webcam, sponsored by Blue Buffalo, is offering animal lovers up-close access to the zoo’s two female tiger cubs born on Nov. 15, 2017. The camera is located in the cubs’ nursery, where the little ladies are currently being cared for.

The best news is that this cub-cam is on and providing pure cuteness content to your computer every day from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST, which means it’s there for you right in the middle of your workday.

Along with getting to “aww” over the striped sweethearts, viewers can also see the around-the-clock work the zoo is putting into hand-rearing the cubs. Unfortunately, after the two rare tigers were born, their mother wasn’t providing for them. Keepers stepped in to move the duo into the nursery, a risky but necessary choice to keep the cuties alive.

“Accredited zoos do much more than simply display animals to visitors,” Zoo Director Gregg Dancho said in a statement. “Zoos like ours play a vital role in conservation, through saving species at risk of extinction in the wild. Through the generosity of Blue Buffalo we are now able to share images of the cubs with the world.”

Amur tigers are critically endangered. Poaching, climate change and habitat destruction have caused their population to drop by 95 percent over the last 100 years. New arrivals, like the Beardsley Zoo cubs, help protect the species by keeping the limited pool that’s left of Amur tigers genetically diverse.

You can watch these two little miracles, who are saving their species just by breathing, on the Beardsley Zoo website. Once the cubs are old enough, they will be moved into a refurbished tiger exhibit at the zoo for public display.
