5 Zoos Around the World That You Can Virtually Visit During Lockdown
The recent Covid-19 outbreak has interrupted everyone’s travel plans. Whether you were due to go on an overseas adventure or were looking forward to a luxury staycation, with flights cancelled and lockdown enforced there’s nowhere we can explore at this moment than that of our fridge.
But, even when you can’t go away, you can still play. Thanks to the digital world we now live in there are a number of fantastic zoos around the world that offer live streams of their animals so you can visit the lions and tigers while you stay in your PJs.
San Diego Zoo
Head over to the Pacific coast of California and explore San Diego Zoo via its incredible live cam footage. Thanks to the amazing global volunteers you can observe the many animals at the zoo from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m pacific time.
At San Diego, you can watch the baboons, penguins, polar bears, apes and so many more.

Wherever you are in the world you can catch a glimpse of the giraffes, zebras and rhinos, get a birds-eye view of the penguins and watch the herd of elephants munch on their lunch at Dublin Zoo.
Thanks to the high-quality webcams that the zoo has installed in the animal’s homes you can check in on the animals every day and pass some time whilst stuck inside.
