A family of dolphins was caught on camera April 11, right off the coast of Istanbul’s normally-busy Moda neighborhood.
The 48-hour curfew of April 11 and April 12 allowed the family of dolphins to swim closer to the shore than they would normally feel comfortable doing, as the waters would usually be crowded with all kinds of boats.

The footage of the family shows them hunting fish.
There have also been reports of seal sightings in the Aegean Sea during the period of decreased activity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
