Daniel Swain in Mashable: Popular wildlife cam just became a dreadful fire cam

One of these many blazes, the Dolan Fire, is a grim scene on the normally pleasant explore.org wildlife webcams in the Ventana Wildlife Society’s Condor Sanctuary, located some two miles from the Pacific Ocean in Central California. (The organization explore.org operates many livestreaming webcams, including the famous Alaskan bear cams.) “The magnitude and geographic extent of the August 2020 lightning fire siege in northern & central California is truly stunning,” Daniel Swain, a climate scientist at UCLA and the National Center for Atmospheric Research, tweeted Wednesday.
