Humboldt Penguin Cam

Remember Monty, the Humboldt penguin? He became famous for his adventures around the Zoo as he visited his animal friends. He’s now live on Zoolife, and so is the rest of the penguin colony. Tune in to see their adorable faces and occasional sassiness.

Watch them bask in the sun, swim in the water, and even observe preening behavior by zooming in up close!


Amur Leopard Cam

Marta the female Amur leopard cub was born in August of 2021 and is the first Amur cub born at the Zoo in 20 years. This birth is very important in terms of conservation as Amur leopards are the most endangered big cats on the planet, period.

Watch Marta, her mother Ajax, or Marta’s dad (and Ajax’s partner) Kasha live on camera at the beautiful Santa Barbara Zoo.


California Condor Cam

Peek into the lives of these very cool vultures, the majestic California condors. Four of these big birds call the Santa Barbara Zoo home, and you may see both juveniles and adults in the same space. The juveniles still have black feathers on their heads, while the adults drop their feathers and just flaunt pinkish-yellowish-orange skin on their heads. The Zoo participates in the Condor Recovery efforts and houses different birds at different times according to their welfare needs.

Watch the condors live on camera at the beautiful Santa Barbara Zoo.
