These 27 nature is healing memes are a perfect isolation pick-me-up
The yodel boy is back in Walmart, we are the virus
Quarantine and lockdown is a pretty bleak place to be sometimes. But at least something good can come out of it because by the looks of the memes circulating, nature is finally healing. Since we’ve all been isolating, a crazy amount of animals have magically come out of extinction and returned to their natural habitat, meaning only one thing: We are in fact the virus.
The memes all started when some pictures of Venice went viral whilst Italy was in lockdown. The pictures appear to show the rivers as flowing crystal clear, with swans and fish swimming in them. The person who posted the pictures swears by them being legit.
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. pic.twitter.com/2egMGhJs7f

If you need a little pick-me-up and some positivity in your day, here are some of the best nature memes which prove we are actually the virus and the world is beautiful. Ok, I know most of these pictures aren’t actually true, but when you’re stuck in your house 24/7 it’s nice to dream that maybe there really are dolphins in local rivers, dinosaurs roaming the streets happily and pasta back on the shelves.
