If you enjoy watching the panda cam or other popular animal webcams at The Smithsonian’s National Zoo, you better get your fix now because in a few hours the webcams could be shut off in the event of a partial U.S. government shutdown.

The zoo announced on its website that if that takes place, the zoo will be closed to the public and it’s live animal cams would be turned off. All animals will continue to be fed and cared for by zoo staff.

The government shutdown would be the first in 17 years, leaving about 800,000 federal workers forced off the job without pay.
