Want a live-streaming peek into the daily lives of a famously mustachioed marine mammal?

Thanks to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and media group Explore.org, you can watch Pacific walruses hustle and bustle around the remote beaches of Round Island, Alaska—a popular hangout spot where more than 2,000 to 3,000 blubbery beasts can congregate at a time.

“To most, the creature [walrus] is a caricature that will only be seen at a zoo or in a depiction from mass media,” said Explore.org founder Charles Weingarten in a statement. “We are honored to bring people up close to observe the walrus in their natural habitat and we are thankful for the opportunity to partner with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to preserve this wonderful the pearl of our planet.”

Four cameras have been installed along the beachfront this year.
