Zoo Background

Public zoos Started to become popular in late 1700s. This was a period in Europe when logic,reason and science were earmarked as backbones of government and society in general. Zoology was included in this train of thought.

During the period, individuals began the study of animals for the advancement of science. Scholars wanted to find out more about animal anatomy and behavior. Because of this, zookeepers needed to house animals in areas that were similar the animal's natural, untouched habitats.

In 1793, the first so-called "modern" zoo opened in Paris, France. Early zoos such as this were more similar to living animal museums rather than areas resembling natural habitats. The animals were housed in small display areas that more resembled cages.

Modern zoos aim to educate as well as entertain its visitors but are also focused on research and conservation of animal species. There's a movement toward allowing the animals more spacious living quarters.
