Like many attractions, the Toronto Zoo has temporarily closed its doors due to the threat of COVID-19. Since we can't bring ourselves to the animals, the zoo is now bringing the animals to us. You can still get your dose of adorableness by tuning into the zoo's new streams. The best part is, you don't even need a ticket. The Toronto Zoo's live streams are spreading cuteness across the 6ix when we need it most.
With attractions and businesses shutting down around the city, things can get pretty lonely.
You can now spend your isolation with animals from the zoo to keep you company.
The Toronto Zoo is now offering live streams through their Facebook page, and you can tune in to watch all sorts of activities.
The first live video released during the closure featured a polar bear training session.
"The Zoo conducted a Facebook Live Keeper Talk at Polar Bears (posted on our timeline)," the Toronto Zoo told Narcity in a statement. "We will continue to try and provide content to the public during our closure period."
Since then, several other live videos have been streamed, including a visit with the gorillas and a penguin birthday celebration.
Learn about giant snakes, see elusive "ghost cats", and watch fluffy grizzly bears indulge in a snack after waking up from a long nap.
Ripley's Aquarium is also offering live streams of their aquatic life during their closure.
You can even take a plunge under the water with their shark cam.
If you've been going through animal withdrawal, then these live streams are the perfect remedy.
The zoo also has podcasts you can tune into to learn more about their furry residents.
Head over to the Toronto Zoo's Facebook page to see their past videos, or catch one of their live streams to make isolation a little cuter.
