ZOO HOPPING WITH GOOGLE STREET VIEW

ZOO HOPPING WITH GOOGLE STREET VIEW

By the day, more and more places are becoming accessible via the Google Street View service which has evolved by leaps and bounds since 2007, allowing us the convenience of experiencing places we would otherwise never have thought possible at the click of a mouse. To the uninitiated, Google Street View allows you to move and look around in a 3D environment by way of piecing many pictures together. Therefore, jagged edges are inevitable as you look around. Nonetheless, all ‘streets’ are in high-definition and still definitely worth a peep.

Recently, a huge update was announced, and over 1,000 new locations are now available to the desktop explorer, and funnily enough, one of the hottest destinations of late, are a multitude of zoos. To date, these include locations in China, Chile, America, Brazil, Germany, Singapore and Barcelona, and the list is still growing, with Google optimistically announcing in a recent blog post:

“Animal-lovers, rejoice! If you enjoy watching wildlife, but find yourself stuck in the urban jungle, never fear. You can now use Google Maps and Street View to preview the must-see spots at zoos around the world before heading there in person, or take a virtual trip to some of the most famous zoos and animal parks, right from your living room.”

So, without further ado, here’s a whirlwind tour of some of the zoos captured by the folks at Google.
