We’ve heard plenty of amazing stories about Mother Earth reclaiming our planet during the Coronavirus pandemic. Dolphins in Venice, Wild Goats in Wales, the Himalayas being seen again for the first time in decades.

But one of our favourites has to be this story about 150,000 flamingos taking over Mumbai.

With pollution down in the city as Mumbai continues its Covid-19 lockdown, more than 100,000 thousand flamingos flocked to the city’s mangroves.

The gorgeous birds come to the region to migrate and breed every year. But with less noise and pollution to disrupt them, the birds have flocked in record numbers

Oh, and ever wondered why Flamingos are pink? Well, wonder no more!

Dubai has had its fair share of nature reclaiming the streets, too!

These gazelles were spotted roaming near Jebel Ali a few weeks ago.
