When nearly 500 animals die in less than four years in one zoo, surely itâEUR(TM)s time to reconsider this anachronistic way of showing our children that the world is full of beautiful animals

I know that a lot of people do an automatic ''knee jerk'' about zoos but, I wish you'd THINK about the many species which have been saved from extinction (IN ZOOS) and how zoos participate internationally in plans to reintroduce formerly endangered animals to the wild.

Do you know that zoos are planning on how to save species which will be doomed by rising waters related to climate change?

Do you not care about saving animals?

I agree with Pam!
There's few that would fit that role but they do exist, think of Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo.... Should we close that one down too?!?!?!
