Everyday kids of all ages are brought to a zoo either with their parents or with their school. Too have a fun and entertaining experience. A zoo is after all classified as an amusement park. Haha
I acknowledge that there are several positive aspects of a Zoo, yes they are supposed to be educational, but in our world today you can learn about all animal species on Nat geo Wild or on the internet.. you do not have to look at a live version to learn. Then there is the claimed aspect that zoo's contribute to conserving the specie diversity, but would it not also work to just let them be. Two snow leopards in the Paris Zoo is not ensuring anything at all other then recreating the idea of a live museum.
We as people are consumers, that means that we belong in the ecosystem of the world. But at some point we excluded ourselves from the ecosystem and we started to control it. Smart move right!?
