I was in Miami last week on a travel junket for The Free Press and one of our stops was Zoo Miami.
It bills itself as one of the top 10 zoos in the U.S.
Above is Patty, a tree Kangaroo. Also photos of girls from Geneva feeding the giraffes (I have permission from their parents to use this photo) and a black rhino.
It is run by the Zoological Society of Florida and its key goals are education and conservation. There are endangered species in the zoo.
Animals living in their natural environments are key but because man is a stupid species, zoos have become necessary.
No danger of man becoming extinct any time soon though.
