Are Zoos Ethical For Animals? – Episode 072

One of our fondest memories is having a family outing at the zoo. It was surreal to see lions, tigers, elephants, and monkeys in person.

Not only that, but zoos are critical for conservation and public education. At least so we thought…

There’s a dark side to the zoo industry to suggest it’s more entertainment than conservation. But is it?

In this conversation, we discuss the ethical considerations of zoos and some alternative ways to connect with animals.
