Twitch now lets users and zoos stream the lives of their furry companions, as part of Animal Week.
Animals, Aquariums, and Zoos
The company kicked-off Animal week with a new live stream category – Animals, Aquariums, and Zoos.
The best part – the streams are interactive. For example, users can feed ducks by going to /DashDucks and using bits. They can also visit /TurtlesAndChill and spend some time marveling at turtles with a relaxing soundtrack.
Furthermore, the platform is launching new emojis to compliment the category.
Helping the Animals
Twitch explained in a blog post: “We’re working with zoos, aquariums, and animal non-profits to elevate the animals, their conservation, and the restoration and conservation of the environment they need to thrive.”
So, the company is currently supporting:
- Best Friends Animal Society – helping cats and dogs across America to live a better life
- Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary – a charity helping endangered British Wild Hedgehogs.
- Monterey Bay Aquarium – a nonprofit public aquarium, focused on ocean conservation.
- WolfConservationCenter- protecting and preserving wolves in North America.
All interested parties can visit the Creator Camp on Charity Streaming and learn how to start their own stream.
