Wildlife is coming out to play while the humans are staying away

FoGP’s Gerry Hans points out there is a huge resurgence of wildlife seen in areas of Griffith Park thanks to COVID-19 shutdown. Without the constant intrusion of helicopters flying around the Griffith Observatory and other areas of the Park it seems that various bird and raptor species are rebounding and perhaps unsurprisingly, there’s more wildlife to be seen in areas closer to residential zones that surround the Park.

As Hans says “Hopefully, clean air and quietness will carry on post-COVID.”

We’ve also included a couple of Gerry’s interviews with KNX news as well as the LA Times article by Louis Sahagun.

      Richard… thanks for your kind words. It’s a group effort to make the newsletter come together especially as we were working hard to refocus the website at the same time, so we really appreciate the comments and the acknowledgement!
