A high-definition camera has begun streaming live video over the Internet of Arctic terns that are nesting on a remote island off the coast of Maine. Explore.org, in collaboration with the National Audubon Society, went live with the camera Wednesday on Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge. Explore.org said it is the first time it knows of that a camera has streamed video of Artic terns. The goal is to engage the public and spur interest in seabird restoration, while helping in scientific research. The videos can be found at explore.org/birds.
