Hundreds of photos show animal behaviour during COVID-19 lockdowns

WNews 1 Min Read

A massive survey analyzing animal behaviour during COVID-19 lockdowns has provided new insight into how humans can better co-exist with their wild counterparts. 

It also provided some great photos of bison, grizzlies, baby moose and other animals in their natural habitats.

The study, published Monday in Nature Ecology and Evolution, involved 120 researchers worldwide and 5,000 camera traps that take pictures when triggered by the movement of wild animals. 

It was led by wildlife biologist and University of British Columbia associate professor Cole Burton, who said the research was spurred on by the notion that as human activity was reduced due to COVID-19 restrictions, animal activity might increase.
