The Coronavirus has over 25% of the US locked down and is impacting the daily life of nearly every person in the world. Travel may seem inconsequential in this current state of the world, but for many of us, going to our favorite destination is a critical way to have fun and escape the day-to-day grind.
Since travel has all but halted in most of the world, we want to bring some of our favorite destinations to your living room, home office, TV, or wherever you are quarantining.

The Gorilla Habitate Cam – Live View
From the site: Our western lowland gorillas share their expansive outdoor habitat with a small family of red river hogs. The gorilla habitat is large, and the gorillas have an indoor habitat as well, so you may not see them on camera all the time.
The Elephant Yard Cam – Live View
From the site: What’s going on in the elephant habitat at the Houston Zoo right now? Find out with our live webcam below. Before 10:30 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m., our elephants may not be visible on the webcams. Zookeepers clean the yard and put out treats in the morning, while the elephants are in their barn having their morning bath. In the late afternoon, they go back in the barn to have dinner. Then, they have the option of spending some time inside or going outside. View now.
