Hi everyone, Miss Justine here. As I sit here at home with my children I realize that what I miss the most is not being able to connect with nature. I love going on nature walks with my little ones and explain to them all about the animals around us. Sure, we go for walks in our neighborhood, but how many times can you talk about squirrels? Usually, when the weather starts to get warm, my family and I love to go to zoos, aquariums, and animal farms in our area. Since these places are currently closed, my kids and I were very sad. Then I discovered that zoos and many other places have animal cams set up. I thought I would share what I have found. Enjoy some zoo cams from around the United States.
