- Deserted beaches have become crowded with wildlife in the wake of social distancing
- An unintended consequence of the lockdown has resulted in a resurgence of nature in places usually utilised by people
- The lack of human interference has demonstrated that if given a chance, nature will find a way to reclaim lost ground
A video posted on Radio 702's Facebook page shows thousands of birds swarming a deserted beach.
This has become a common theme as the nationwide lockdown has resulted in nature returning to places that used to be frequented by people.
In the video, Mauritz Basson can be heard saying that besides the birds, they also saw dolphins a few days before.
Breifly.co.za learned that he said that he had never seen anything like it before, he called it a spectacle and something more impressive than the sardine run.
People were delighted with the video and commented on how nature had made a comeback.
Tawanda Tito Nyamuzihwa: Beautiful nature.
Dawn Moore: Wow!! Nature is beautiful.
Fatima Karodia: Freedom for nature!!!
Nazlie Young: Wow!!! Beautiful.
Michelle Marais Paulse: How beautiful is that!
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that a short clip containing information on the current coronavirus pandemic sure has done its job in so far as capturing people's attention.
However, the video is turning heads for all the wrong reason as people seem to find it more cringe-worthy than anything that has surfaced to date.
Even the usually outspoken One South Africa leader Mmusi Maimane was indignant over what seemed more like a low-budget music video than an informative clip on a serious virus.
