Environmental & Science Education
Edward Hessler

With humans staying inside or when we venture outside further avoiding the accumulation of crowds what do wild animals think...behave? They--some of them--have started coming to us and where we live. 

.Washington Post, reporter Terence McCoy has a nice story about what is happening and to match that story includes quite a few stills and a couple of videos. He writes, 

"For centuries, humans have pushed wildlife into smaller and smaller corners of the planet. But now, with billions in isolation and city streets emptied, nature is pushing back. Wild boar have descended onto the streets of Barcelona. Mountain goats have overtaken a town in Wales. Whales are chugging into Mediterranean shipping lanes. And turtles are finally getting some peace."

Moves wildlife viewing up several notches without having to leave and go poke your nose into their daily round. In addition, for them this is a "Do Not Disturb" sign near their homes.  It also, in some cases provides some benefits.
