Somewhere along the way people, and especially newspapers and TV programmes, have got to get to grips with what conservation is all about. The video below shows all that it is NOT. Handrearing is wrong unless it is absolutely necessary.....and if the animals were maintained properly would be an extremely rare occurrence. Breeding Tigons, Ligers, White Tigers, White Lions is NOT conservation. Swimming Orangutans? Why are they not with their mother?
This is all wrong...and it wrong regardless of how much money is reputedly handed over to conservation.
I have little doubt that zoo visitors get a huge thrill with these interactions, and it may well be that Kody believes that this is all okay. It May Be Cute But It Is NOT Conservation.
Just What is the point Mr Antle?
