I really love animals and I don't really approve of Zoos but the Wildlife Center at Whipsnade is a different experience. The animals have a lot more space roam about and generally seem in a better psychological stat than those you see in the more enclosed city zoos. I understand what organisations such as the ZSL are doing with protection and study of species, and also how necessary it is for us to be able to see these animals in person. Most children would never see these magnificent creatures in real life and conservation would not be such an important issue. Still we should work more to make it that these animals are not endangered in there natural habitat and where we don't need to have zoos in order to preserve creatures from extinction.
