Amid the Covid-19 lockdowns all over the world, there are certain major and minor benefits to the lack of human activity.
A major change is recently seen is the drop in Nitrogen Dioxide pollution in Italy.
One example of a good minor change, is that the animals of the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, Illinois, have been able to explore, visit each other and stretch their legs beyond within the walls of their enclosures, as the aquarium showcased their penguins taking a tour through their facility on their Twitter page.
Penguins in the Amazon?! 🐧🌴
Some of the penguins went on a field trip to meet other animals at Shedd. Wellington seemed most interested in the fishes in Amazon Rising! The black-barred silver dollars also seemed interested in their unusual visitor. pic.twitter.com/KgYWsp5VQD

A little penguin can be seen looking at fishes in a huge tank, while a school of fishes stared back cautiously.
More adorable penguins could be seen visiting other parts of the aquarium, glancing curiously at a massive tank reflecting enchanting colours.
The penguins were allowed to roam due to the absence of foot traffic at the aquarium. They certainly must have been so grateful to get out of their enclosure for a day out.
Shedd Aquarium’s insanely cute penguins have since garnered over 32,200 retweets.
Let’s hope that once the Covid-19 lockdowns are over, the penguins are still allowed to roam free every once in a while.
