Aussie Animals Abroad
Taronga Zoo is exporting animals and I'm not sure if its the right thing to do
Recently I found out that Taronga Zoo had done a deal with an Asian Zoo, to exchange animals. Apparently the zoo had been known for poor animal keeping practices, and there was some fears that Taronga was not doing the right thing.
I sent a letter to the CEO of the Zoo, asking him to reconsider, and to ensure they were doing the right thing. Pretty quickly I received a letter back saying that they were confident they were doing the right thing and would never send animals to a place they didn't believe would do the right thing...
So who to believe? The Zoo who should be (and claim to be) doing the right thing, or those that have investigated the partner Zoo and found them less than ethical?
I'm not sure... anyone else have thoughts on it?
