In my previous post ‘Don’t fence me in’ I put my case forward that zoos were a good thing.
They let me see the fantastic animals in this gallery, for instance. I am concerned that the individual animals aren’t necessarily very happy in cages though. And the argument has been taken further by Damian Aspinall, who said recently in the Evening Standard that city centre zoos should be closed (although he does run an out-of-town wildlife park similar to Whipsnade).
So, now I want to know what you think. Are zoos a good thing? There’s a comment section at the bottom of this post – so let me know! I’ll also try to respond to any questions you have.
