Thousands of families are turning to Marwell Zoo’s live webcams to keep themselves entertained while they stay at home.

The zoo’s flamingos, penguins, giraffes and black and white ruffed lemurs are all taking a starring role as people tune in to watch their daily activities.Two flamingos at Marwell Zoo

Viewings have increased nearly 27,000% since mid-March with 64,000 people tuning in compared to 187 previously. The Flamingos seem to be the headliners as they perform elaborate group courtship displays such as synchronised wing-raising and ‘head-flagging’ – over 34,500 people have been watching the flamingo webcam compared to just 86 before the Zoo had to close it doors due to Government measures.

Take your family on a journey around Marwell Zoo without leaving the house. Find all the webcam links below.
