The novel coronavirus outbreak has people staying home practicing social distancing, and in response, an Australian zoo is bringing the animals to you.
The Melbourne Zoo installed livestream cameras in its penguin, lion, giraffe and baby snow leopard cages for those who are staying home and away from public spaces.
Even during these uncertain times, animal lovers worldwide will be able to enjoy the simple pleasure of going to the zoo while staying inside to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Zoos Victoria has set up livestreams at the Melbourne Zoo and in Werribee Open Range Zoo enclosures.
