Stuck at Home - Visit the Zoo

Hippos, otters and penguins can be viewed through webcams, virtual tours and “home safaris.” And at one aquarium, penguins strolled through the exhibits.

As Americans adjust to staying home during the coronavirus pandemic, which has closed schools around the country, zoos and aquariums are trying to fill the void of children’s activities with “home safaris,” virtual tours and webcams.

With U.S. health officials urging the public to practice social distancing and pare down gatherings during the outbreak, zoos and museums are offering more remote programming.

The Dallas Zoo, which is closed at least through March 20, began sharing behind-the-scenes footage and educational videos on social media, using the hashtag #BringTheZooToYou.
