As the quarantine continues, residents surrounding Griffith Park have shared that they’re noticing more wildlife activity - hawk nests, deer in the hills, opossums on the roads. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, some wildlife biologists are saying what’s changed isn’t animal behavior but our own. We finally have the time and the patience to notice the wildlife around us. 

So, what have you noticed? Have you had any interesting wildlife interactions since the shut-down began? Have you observed something about your animal neighbors that you haven’t noted before? Call us at 866-893-5722.
