Personally, I think the work that zoos are doing these days with preservation, breeding, and protection of endangered species is incredibly important. The only thing about it that makes me sad is how people are unaware of all the incredible work zoos around the world are doing to prevent the most endangered of species from going extinct.
In Australia, for example, they take no chances at all, making sure to safely introduce young tigers to the adults, and the results are beautiful to behold.
As an extra note, let’s all just be amazed at the fact that in Australia, they move their tigers by walking them around on leashes. Truly, this is a land filled with incredibly brave, if slightly crazy people, doing very important work in conservation.
