I'm sorry Joao but I disagree with your statement. I don't think there's a safer place for some of these animals than in captivity. There are very few places which they can roam free without fears of poaching or being killed for food. The fee that people pay to go to this zoo, like others, help fund research to help conserve their habitat, allow them to reproduce and maybe one day be released back into the "wild" or protected area.

this is a very good example of a cative wild animal, zoo´s are a sad place for animals, it doens t make any sense to get an animal in the wild and put it bind bars, humans are the horst of the horst
stop going to zoo´s
