Zoo Atlanta streams Panda Cam, more things to do at home

ATLANTA, Ga — While President Donald Trump extended the the social distancing guidelines through the end of April, many parents will continue to balance working, teaching, and keeping their kids entertained while at home.

If you’re looking for a daily break and a dose of cuteness, Zoo Atlanta has you covered.

The popular Atlanta attraction, which is closed for the time being, is now live-streaming a panda cam.

You can check out what the pandas are up to, which likely will include eating, playing or napping.

If you have kids, beware that the stream warns that the content is intended for mature audiences.
