Yorkshire Wildlife Park Is Live Streaming Its Polar Bears Today

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, zoos and safaris across the world have shut their doors to the public.

But determined that this doesn't stop people from seeing their incredible animals, many have launched live streams and video tours instead.

We previously told you about San Diego zoo and Chester zoo getting on the hype.

But the latest facility to drum up attention is Yorkshire Wildlife Park, which is offering up a live stream of their polar bears this afternoon. Yaaaas!

Taking place at 2pm, the live stream will be available on the park's Facebook page, and will take people behind the scenes to meet the Polar Bears alongside the keepers.

The park, near Doncaster, has several polar bears from around the world, sent from the likes of Munich and Holland.

Nobby, Nissan, Pixel and Victor are the OG polar bears at the park, but it also recently took in a new adult polar bear called Rasputin, who was born in Moscow, Russia.

He arrived from captivity in the South of France this January, and is currently still adapting to his new surroundings.

The live stream is already drumming up a huge reception online, with many claiming their kids were super excited to see the polar bears from the comfort of their sofa.

"For the first time in weeks my son is smiling," one wrote.

While another added: "I could spend the whole day watching the boys, they are magnificent!"

A third concurred: "My girls are looking forward to it".

This isn't the first offering from the park, which also brought us a Relaxing Virtual Tour on its Facebook page yesterday, which featured footage of the empty park, and some of its most loved animals, from meerkats to lions to giraffes to rhinos, set to meditative music.

Sensing that some of us might be a *little* stressed or anxious right now, the park wrote alongside the footage: "Sit back and RELAX as we take you on a calming virtual journey around the beautiful Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

"Enjoy the park all to yourself and get up close with some of the most breathtaking animals on our planet!"

We can't think of anything we'd rather watch while unwinding.

Yorkshire Widllife Park also asked the public to vote for which animals they wanted to see just days earlier, and took us on a tour of the wallaby and lemur enclosures, amassing up over 33,000 views in the process.

We'll see you at 2pm over at the polar bear enclosure!
