In these days of physical distancing our new normal is to stay home, and when leaving for essentials, we should be at least 6 feet away from other humans. So it feels natural to remind ourselves that the distance between us and wildlife is much farther (at least 75 feet) and is a rule that should always be followed, global pandemic aside.
