Thanks to the lack of people, tourism and boat traffic in and around Italy, wildlife that typically kept away appears to have returned.  As one Twitter uses says, “Here’s an unexpected side effect of the pandemic – the water’s flowing through the canals of Venice is clear for the first time in forever. The fish are visible, the swans returned.”  Italy, the epicenter of the outbreak on the continent has closed all nonessential businesses and the result is that nature has been given a chance to recover…from us.

A spokesman from the Venice mayor’s office said that the canals may just look cleaner due to the lack of traffic, but air pollution has decreased. “The air, however, is less polluted since there are less vaporetti and boat traffic than usual because of the restricted movement of residents,” he said.

Now there is a tiny bright light in the darkness of this pandemic.

Keep well and stay safe.

Mother nature is talking and warning us. We should listen or she will hammer us good.
