Quote of the Week

Zoos are becoming facsimiles - or perhaps caricatures - of how animals once were in their natural habitat. If the right policies toward nature were pursued, we would need no zoos at all.
~Michael Fox, Sierra, November-December 1990

Hi Ana,

No disrespect intended to Mr. Fox, but couldn't zoos, if managed properly, play a constructive role in terms raising awareness about animals and issues relating to animal welfare?

I think the point Fox was making is that our zoo's are becoming the only naturel habitit the animals in it will have one day. If not already.. ;o((
