Zoos have their place in conservation too

While some of us are privileged to see wildlife in their natural habitat, that is not a blessing for all. But who can forget all those trips to the zoo as a child, or as a parent / grandparent with small kids in tow.

My parents even had to spell out the word to each other when they were preparing to set out, or us kids would jump around and go crazy if we heard the word zoo. I still remember the lions from our local zoo – and that was when I was barely of school age!

Anyway, CBS news has done us all a great favor by showing a collection of fine photos of zoo animal babies up close and in person. Something almost no one experiences out in the wild. And don’t worry, all these animals are well cared for day and night and are the best of the best educational resource – since people react so differently to live animals.
