Explore.org now has four cameras on two Maine islands where people can view terns, puffins, ospreys and other seabirds over the Internet.

Explore.org in collaboration with the National Audubon Society went live with the camera Wednesday on Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge.

Explore.org says it's the first time it knows of that a camera has streamed video of Artic terns.

The goal is to engage the public and spur interest in seabird restoration, while also helping in scientific research. The Arctic tern population in the Gulf of Maine has declined about 40 percent in the past decade.
