PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Kids are stuck at home, but some of the live programs available online can open their world.  

You can start the day with a trip to South Africa for a live safari on Wild Earth, which livestreams sunrise and sunset trips daily.

Closer to home, the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown has an interactive zoo school weekdays at 11 a.m. 

At 2 p.m., head into the city to the Philadelphia Zoo to learn about the different animals in the zoo from their keepers. 

At 3 p.m., hop over to the Cincinnati Zoo for its home safari.

Afterward, there’s still time to travel to California, where the Monterey Bay Aquarium staff are narrating facebook live videos and answering viewers' questions.

For a more relaxing livestream, check out the Smithsonian's National Zoo's Panda Cams, where you can watch the zoo's 2 pandas 24 hours a day. 

You can also go under the sea with The Nature Conservatory’s Reef Cam, where you can look at reefs and observe schools of fish in Port Phillip Bay, Australia.
