About this book

Language: English

In an era dominated by fear for the unpredictable effects of pandemics and climate distortion, humanity yearns for reconnection with a more authentic and natural world. Zoo visiting provides the best opportunity. Zooing the World investigates current tendencies of wildlife attractions, conservation and nature education.

There is a bright future for zoos that focus on what really will matter in the decades to come. Sound commercial thinking and an increased understanding of creating meaningful experiences, will enable the seemingly impossible to be realised. Ultimately almost the whole world will be a zoo featuring managed wildlife habitats as enclaves within an entirely man-made environment. Zoos can become pioneers and knowledge centres helping to make the best of this sad but inevitable process. There is, however, the risk of zoos becoming the victims of their own commercial success and developing as one-dimensional attractions with little respect for animals.
