Whenever I mention the word ZOO, people tend to freak out because they automatically think animals are being mistreated. While this may be the case for some zoos in the world, there are several others I’ve visited who are working hard to protect & conserve animals and our ecosystems.
Yesterday, I visited the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens in Florida, where I was able to meet with Uno — a blind panther that they rescued on the street and have taken under their wing. Without their efforts, Uno would not be alive, and the vulnerable species of the Florida Panther would have one less member (there are about ~200 living today).
What are your thoughts on zoos? Are you for or against them? Let me know in the comments below.
