As with many places all around the world, COVID 19 is having an impact on where we can travel, and the businesses we can support. The Isle of Wight is one such place. With restrictions on businesses opening, public gatherings, and the huge importance of social distancing this is understandable. But it does have an impact on businesses that rely on tourism to stay open, and on the animals in places like the Isle of Wight Zoo. Here is a look at what we can do to help out, and what we can check out on the Isle of Wight webcams. Isle of Wight Zoo Webcam The zoo is closed and has no idea when it can open again. But those animals still need caring for. Dedicated staff are making sure every animal at the zoo is still properly look after, but with no money coming in from your visits, funding is a problem, and without us, the animals could suffer. As a result the zoo has set up a 24 hour a day webcam for gorgeous and stunning Kumba and Vigo. Enjoy seeing them soaking up the sun or cuddled together inside with both inside and outside Isle of Wight webcams.
