National Zoo and Aquarium Month

Hi everyone. After listening to the news, I bet there are a lot of people with mixed feelings about the lockdown slowly easing, or that it will soon be coming to an end if you’re like me and you’re concerned about venturing out, especially when there is still no vaccine available, don’t panic you are not on your own, it affects more people than you know, especially when it as been a few months since you have been outside your house, other than your garden. The best way to deal with your anxieties is to talk to someone. Don’t forget the guidelines that are set, for a reason, follow them and keep safe.

This month is National Zoo and Aquarium Month and the time couldn’t be more perfect to start planning a day trip to the zoos and aquariums as they re-opened this month, or why not make a donation to your favorite.

Why not launch into summer by visiting a zoo or aquarium near you, but make sure you book your ticket online otherwise you will not be allowed inside as they won’t be handling any money for obvious reasons. All around the country they are getting ready for when visitors start coming to the parks and making sure it’s safe for everyone. The parks offer all year long programs regarding wildlife and educational fun for all the children.

What The Zoo and Aquarium Offer:

There are several ways that you can explore your favourite zoos and aquariums.

  • There are around 700 million people that visit zoos and aquariums each year, which makes it the third-largest globally.

  1. Enjoyed reading your post since it reminded me of the time when, before the lockdown, I took my three-year old to the zoo. Good fun though half the animals were MIA.
    Much appreciated and thanks for sharing
