I just meant that zoos are the only place these people can see these
animals , they are not subsitutes for the real thing. Zoos are getting
better at setting up habitats , rather than a concrete box and cave for the
critters. That is all, nothing more or less. Frozen gametes would be a
silly next step since no one could see them. Zoos can help with protection
of rare wild animals when there entire habitat has been wiped out, but we
should also make sure these animals have a home in the wild as well.
I dont get animal planet anymore, and thought it a pretty good network,
but some or their shows were a bit preachy, maybe they need to be. I like
Crocidile hunter since he makes the "undesirable" animals look good to the
general public and why they are important.
