Video details

When zoos first appeared, they were to show exotic animals to the public in zoological gardens, like plants in botanic gardens. With the days of international travel and amazing wildlife programmes on TV, people now have a much greater understanding of the behaviour and welfare needs of wild animals – do zoos still have a place in today’s society and if they do, what is it?
