Hi Zoo Photogs,
I started this thread some years back and the journey has been most rewarding - for helping me learn about animal needs and behaviour.
It also helped me to open my eyes to appreciate the quality of life for many of the Zoo inhabitants. Not all Zoos are equal and the key goal should be the preservation of the animals for the good of all. I am so very glad that all the images shared here has reflected such positive treatment of animals in enclosures but I recently came upon serious mistreatment of animals at a Zoo. I realise that this post may be deleted by the moderators but if it is within the realm of sharing relevant information that furthers the interest of specific group of photographers, I hope some here would consider signing the petition to close this Zoo in Surabaya. Moderators, if this is out of bounds, please proceed to delete this post. Otherwise, I hope that those who have the fortune of enjoying good zoos can help the animals in places where they live in terrible conditions.
