While people across the nation self-quarantine at home, many museums, zoos and animal care facilities are inviting the public to enjoy wildlife from their couches. Here are just a few ways to enjoy animal life while staying safe at home.
South Carolina Aquarium
Locals can join the Aquarium for a “virtual road trip through South Carolina” every day at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Facebook. The Aquarium will be hosting virtual visits showcasing the state’s regions and the fascinating wildlife that call South Carolina home.
Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute
All Smithsonian museums, including the National Zoo, continue to be closed with no definitive reopening date. Their website offers several webcams (including one monitoring baby cheetah cubs!) and provides a link to educational activities for children related to the animals.
Lions, tigers, and meerkats, oh my!
