Zoos Across The Globe Offer Creative Ways To Connect With Animals From Home

Many zoos across the globe have temporarily closed their gates because of the current worldwide health crisis. 

The zookeepers and animal health staff are continuing to provide care for all of the zoo's animals but the human connection with the zoo visitors is missed. 

Here are some of the creative ways you can easily bring the zoo home.

Zoos Rating Species In The Form Of An Amazon Review

Back in 2018, there was a glorious weekend in which several zoos took to Twitter and with the hashtag #rateaspecies, zoos, scientists, and academies of sciences all aired their thoughts on their animals in the style of an Amazon review. 

It was a wonderful animal-filled weekend and we felt it was time for it to resurface, once more. 

We give these zoo rated animals a 4.2/5 stars and their attached photos a solid 12/5 stars.

Zoo keepers filmed Jack's first steps, which were taken just an hour after he was born. Because the weather was so cold during his first week, Jack wore a coat to help him stay warm! Luckily, the cold spell did not last and the zoo captured photos of Jack and his mother, Sarrai.

Bactrian camels are native to the steppes of Central Asia. They have two humps, in comparison to the one-humped Dromedary Camel native to the Middle East and northern Africa. They were domesticated thousands of years ago and transported humans vast distances in ancient times. Able to survive up to 10 months without drinking water, Bactrian camels are listed as Critically Endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Fewer than 1,000 Bactrian Camels survive in the wild; interbreeding with domestic populations is diminishing the genetic integrity of the species.
