The incredible flora and fauna of the Venetian canals have been caught on video as the lack of boats on the waterways leaves the water to clear and natural life to thrive.


The Italian city world-renowned for its canals has been in lockdown since early March, having been among the first regions in Europe to have been impacted by the Covid-19 coronavirus.


However, with a lack of activity on the waterways, lower emissions and less pollution, zoologist Andrea Mangoni has captured some of the nature thriving in the region's canals - including a barrell jellyfish gliding gracefully through the waters.
