to be fair, i'm super conflicted on this issue

That's okay. That is because zoo's o many wonderful things.

Personally, its just depressing to see a gorilla sitting there staring at a glass wall and leaning on some pretend boulders.

My ex-fiancé is an exotic pet veterinarian and former researcher, and sort of one of those people more empathetic to animals than to people. She's a pretty vocal modern zoo advocate. This article reminds me a lot of a simplified, less richly exampled version of her stance:

Every penguin dies. Not every penguin truly lives.

Honestly though they're much better off in their own collapsing ecosystem. A zoo is just a fast food restaurant in waiting for those fleeing the zombie hordes.

Would you say it's worse that an animal like a beluga whale be in a tank or that people who cannot afford to go whale watching never get the chance to see one?


Argue what you want, but the Georgia Aquarium says they're helping protect belugas in the wild with research at their aquarium.
