Yosemite National Park has been closed to the human public for over two weeks now, and it seems like the wildlife is really enjoying the break from human activity. The 750,000-acre park is only seeing human activity from the essential park rangers who continue to do their typical work (except for herding humans) and the park seems very quiet.

The park, which sees between 4-5 million visitors every year, is now solely enjoyed by the wildlife, and park rangers shared a video of the eerily empty park with wildlife playing in all the free space:

Coyotes, bobcats and deer, oh my!

While we appreciate the park rangers still working hard in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak, we’re more than a little jealous. Can you imagine having the beautiful 750,000 acre park all to yourself?
