Children’s zoo offering awesome art for use in video conferences

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo hasn't announced when it might open, but as officials there assess the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, they are offering up some fun reminders of the critters awaiting the start of the 2020 season.

The zoo has put together 10 animal-tastic backgrounds to be used by kids (and adults) who are spending much of their time on Zoom and other video conferencing systems.

"Fun with the Zoo(m)" features choices including wild cats, a shark, a butterfly and more.

The images can be downloaded for free from a special page on the zoo's website.

Opening day for 2020 was set for April 18, but no announcement has been made regarding a new target date.
