About this book

More than 150 zoos are profiled, as are the zoo-related histories of 100 animals traditionally exhibited in zoos and those affected by zoo conservation and breeding efforts.

'The first major reference that is more than a directory of zoological parks ... a remarkably current work ... With so few reference resources about the world of zoos, libraries will welcome this wonderful and unique title. Highly recommended.' Library Journal
