A quiet zoo revolution has also been occurring over the past twenty-five years. Rather than just stand by the sidelines as species vanish in the wild, many zoos have begun funding on-the-ground conservation efforts. This revolution signals a widening realization by zoos of the positive—and wholly unique—role they could play in combating global mass extinction. But are zoos doing enough?
i'm LOVING the jurassiczoo/zoorassicworld/jurassiczookeeper pics! it's so wonderful that zookeepers are getting amazing recognition for the relationships they build with the other-than-human animals with which they are lucky to work!
I'm surprised they didn't also refer to the other ribbon worm (nemertean) that was all over the internet a couple weeks before. You know, the red one that everted its white proboscis all over someone's hand: http://youtu.be/jnlKFQNYYMs
