COVID-19 and animals
There are a lot of rumours and misinformation out there about COVID-19 in domestic and wild animals. In this lecture we’ll try and stick to the facts, based upon the current published cases and scientific reports. Where did it come from, what species can be affected, are they a risk to humans? We’ll also touch on other ‘spillover’ diseases and why they say more about how we live our lives than the animals involved.
What’s happening onsite
Video clips and photos by Simon Kidner
Although we have reduced staff and a reduced number of animals on site, the animal carers are still working hard to care for sick and injured animals and the many orphans we have at this time of year. Through video clips and photos Simon will show you just a little of what is going on behind the scenes.
