Lets Go To The Zoo_ See and Appreciate Conservation of Endangered Species

Updated on January 31, 2013

Going to the Zoo can be a wonderful family activity that inspires kids & adults both

In my family, that was always the case, and now that Grandma and Grandpa are gone, we still go to see the Zoo when we can near our home or when on a vacation somewhere or during a week-end to a nearby Zoo in Washington DC, Baltimore or even Philadelphia. All three are wonderful large Zoos where open space and natural habitats are being created to make the animals feel at home as best as possible. Some of these animlas are coming close to extinction in their own natural habitat for various reasons.

Today, Zoos have increasingly involved in conservation of wild animals, specially endanged species. Often the release animals to the wild to help strengthen survival of such species in their natural habitat. It's difficult challage often due to wars, and pressures of population growth that constantly decreasingly the living space of wildlife throughout the world, in some places severely so today.

So, Zoos, often cooperating with eachother, through various associations and societies do what they can to help with the challenge of survival as best as possible. Zoo Keepers increased knowledge of wildlife habitat and balance of nature, today's visitors can see first hand at zoos near where they live or while taking a family trip during holidays such as Christmas.


Such visits adds appreciation of the value of conservation of animals now endangered wit help from Zoos aournd the world

      My community zoo recently opened the new "Glacier Run Exhibit" that is home to two beautiful and very busy polar bear cubs, Qannik and Siku, plus adult polar bear Aki and the active grizzly bear family[ the recent fatal attack of a hiker in a USA national park] has brought light to the threaten habitat of the grizzly by the encroachment by humans.
