Take 5: Animal Masks

Wearing masks in public in a great way to protect yourself, protect those around you, and help slow the spread of COVID-19. Since we’re all wearing masks in public for the foreseeable future, we thought it might be fun to highlight a few mask-wearers from the animal kingdom, as well.

While you’re outdoors, safely enjoying our trails, consider these five Massachusetts natives that “wear” their masks 24/7, with photos from our annual Picture This: Your Great Outdoors photo contest.
