[Editor's note: The video above compiles footage from AFC's pandacam so readers have a sense of what we did over the course of the shutdown.]
The shutdown of the federal government has not affected everyone equally. Here at AFC, none of us are federal employees. None of us have ever been in nature. None of us require experimental medical treatments, and none of us are currently in space. We are all, however, fans of the National Zoo’s Pandacam, which has tragically been lost in the general disruption of public services.
But we’re not taking this lying down. Instead, we will dedicate ourselves to providing Pandacam services for as long as the government cannot, even if it requires a lot of lying down and occasionally live-pooping.
