The world is coming together in a lot of ways right now to get through this pandemic and I’m continuously amazed by the measures people are taking to keep the little ones at home entertained.

As you know by now, there is currently an abundance of programs, classes, shows, and much more, available online to help you pass the time. One of those things in the much more category are zoo and aquarium webcams!

These webcams are typically up year round, but now seems like one of the best times to utilize them.

So take a field trip to one (or all) of these zoos and/or aquariums, without spending a dime and without leaving your couch.
