The live stream lets you watch the adorable puppies as they glide across the water on their backs, snuggle up to sleep, or get playful during playtime.
The cameras are active for most of the day, allowing you to watch the otters go about their daily lives from morning to night.
And while you might scoff at their idea of using the otter’s live camera to calm you down, there’s actually some evidence that the activity is good for your health.
A study conducted by the University of Leeds and in partnership with Western Australia Tourism found evidence to suggest that seeing cute animals can relieve stress and anxiety.
The study monitored participants’ blood pressure and heart rate while enjoying 30 minutes of cute animal footage.
These animals included kittens, puppies, baby gorillas, and even quokkas.
The research for the experiment took place during the winter, when the students studied were stressfully anticipating their next exams.
In each person studied, they found a decrease in anxiety, blood pressure and heart rate after observing the cute animals.
Specifically, on average, blood pressure levels dropped from 136 to 88 and heart rate fell 6.5%.
Anxiety levels in the participants were also reduced by 35 percent thanks to the fluffy animals.
Convinced now? Well, here is where you can keep up to date with otters.
