While self-quarantine is giving the world a hard time, tourist attraction like The Georgia Aquarium in the United States has decided to take you on a virtual tour via its Ocean Voyager cam. 

As the largest aquarium in the United States is temporarily shut like many other tourist attractions, in light of COVID-19 outbreak, it has decided to stream live from Atlanta, Georgia, so that people can still enjoy some underwater adventure, while stuck at home. 

The sea lions of Indo-Pacific Barrier Reef, or Californiathe cool penguins of Africa, piranha, jellyfish, beluga whalesotters, and etc. are few of the many incredible creatures you can explore without even stepping out of your home.

Then there is the Ocean Voyager gallery built by the Home Depot, which houses more than 50 species in over 6.3 million gallons of water. Here you can spot four whale sharks, four manta rays, and thousands of other fish. 

The announcement to close one of the world’s most flocked tourist attractions was recently made by The Georgia Aquarium in a statement on its official website. 

In an attempt to curb the rise of coronavirus cases, like most of the world, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, also recently issued orders to shutdown bars, gyms, and other businesses, and limited restaurants only to takeaways. She even suspended towing and booting of vehicles across Atlanta.

Apart from the Georgia Aquarium, other tourist attractions that are providing a similar virtual tour include Zoo Atlanta via its Panda Cam, Shedd Aquarium, the place that recently garnered much attention for sharing a video of penguins roaming freely inside the aquarium, while it was closed for public. Moreover, Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio is hosting Home Safari Facebook Live, whereas the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California is allowing people to choose which animal they want to view.
