Today’s zoos, are better characterized as being habitats for animals. We have come along way from the human centered entertainment with small cages that held majestic beasts better suited to be roaming the wilds of the Serengeti, the Amazon or the mountain ranges of Asia.

Today’s zoos are also centers geared toward saving endangered species. Today’s zoologists are dedicated to the care and understanding of the animals in their charge.Husbandry and kindness go hand-in-hand.
People today are also different. They wouldn’t allow an animal to be abused or mistreated because its in a zoo. The general population demands respect for the animals in our care.
