The peace and quiet in the streets during lockdowns worldwide, make animals come out of forests into cities.

Wild boars patrolled in Israel and took over people’s gardens. Migratory birds took advantage of the peace and quiet in Lebanon.

Goats wandered the streets and munched on flowers in Wales. A cow walked onto a rooftop in Turkey. A lone kangaroo hopped through empty streets in Australia.

And a record number of sea turtles hatched on undisturbed beaches in Thailand.
