Day 175

Roadside zoos often confine animals in enclosures that are not only detrimental to their welfare but which are also unsafe for the public. When animals escape they are often killed to ensure the public's safety as quickly as possible.

Day 174

The highest concentration of giraffes lives in sub-Saharan Africa, an area known for iconic species such as lions, leopards, hyenas, cheetahs, zebras, and antelopes. In captivity, animals are not only often denied the chance to interact with their own kind, but also the other animals that live in their natural, wild homes.

Day 172

Last month, a polar bear cub died at a Sea World park in Australia two weeks after she was born. The facility's management expressed particular regret that the baby had died because she was a female and could therefore have been used in breeding programs. Around half of cubs born in captivity do not survive.

Leopards are agile hunters and often jump distances of several meters to pounce on their prey. After a successful hunt, leopards will drag heavier carcasses into trees to consume them safely or store them for a later time.

In our society, zoos are presented as an acceptable day out for a family looking to entertain their children for a few hours. Most people spend less than a minute at each exhibit. Animals with long lives, like elephants, will live in these exhibits for decades.
