San Antonio Zoo Launches Streaming Series So We Can Look at Cute Animals Instead of Coronavirus News

It's hard not to panic when we're stuck inside reading news about the COVID-19 pandemic all day.

But the San Antonio Zoo is here with a cure.

To stay connected with the public while its doors are closed — and help us calm the fuck down while they're at it — the zoo has launched a new media page featuring live feeds of resident animals, educational videos and even zoo yoga.

Currently, the page has two live animal cams: a calming look at floating moon jellyfish — which can also be viewed on Twitch — and a "kangaroo cam" featuring the zoo's two Matschie's tree kangaroos, Omeo and Libby.

For anyone hungering for fresh content, the zoo will livestream new videos on Facebook Mondays through Fridays: Animal Chats at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Zen Zoo yoga at 10:30 a.m.
