Day 30

Bears at Marineland, Canada beg for food. In the wild, black bears are predominantly solitary animals who rarely interact with other bears outside of mating and raising their cubs. Marineland's bears live in a small enclosure which makes it almost impossible for them to spend time away from other animals.
In 2016, Marineland was charged with several counts of animal cruelty, including infractions regarding the treatment of the bears in its care. Further charges have since been laid regarding the treatment of other animals kept at the marine park.

Foggy was born in captivity at the Houston Zoo in 1965 and moved to the Calgary Zoo at nine months old. He would live there until he died in 2012, aged 47.

Foggy was an ambassador for a sanctuary he would never see, Calgary Zoo's outreach conservation project in Ghana, the Wechiau Community Hippo Sanctuary.
Foggy's story is featured in Jo-Anne's first book, We Animals.

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.

Day 157

PETA has revealed footage of a German zoo using whips and bullhooks to train baby elephants to perform in shows for visitors. While modern zoos claim to operate on a model of conservation and education, all too frequently, animals are still exploited to attract visitors and increase profits.

Day 150

Last week, a California court of appeals overturned a ruling requiring the Los Angeles Zoo to give the elephants in its care access to soft ground and prohibiting the use of electric prods and bull hooks. The injunction, which was issued in 2012, was overturned on the basis of a legal technicality.
