the daily lives of billions of people around the world. Indeed, many of us found ourselves locked in our homes with sometimes the only opportunity to go out to go shopping or to go to work.
In these unprecedented conditions, it is difficult to take your mind off things and find time to recharge your batteries. However, thanks to their professional activity, some are much more fortunate than others. This is the case of Chad Staples, the guardian (now director) of Mogo Wildlife Park, an animal park located on the Australian coast, east of the capital Canberra. And for good reason, if the place remained closed to the public for several months, it was able to take advantage of the residents throughout the most restrictive period linked to the spread of Covid-19. During these unique moments, he wanted to share photos on social networks so that as many people as possible can enjoy the animals in their homes and thus give a little happiness to everyone.

They have something to warm the heart in these difficult times.
