The book explores the issues surrounding zoos and animal welfare. Presents diversity of opinion on the topic, including both conservative and liberal points of view in an even balance.
Zoos have evolved over time from symbols of power and prestige of the early rulers, to institutions for education and research, to powerful businesses, and ultimately to a beacon of hope in a world facing alarming rates of extinction.
Yet to some, zoos have always been and continue to be prisons where otherwise healthy animals waste away inside depressing enclosures, facing a lifetime of neglect. These critics will need a lot of convincing to believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals. People can learn more about the fears of critics and the future of zoos by tracing their evolution over time.
