I have conflicting feelings about the zoo. I can see it's good points expecially now they are helping in conservation and just making people aware of the extinction of different species bla bla. But I don't walk around the zoo feeling happy. They really have put a lot of work into toronga. Years ago I was so enraged by the living condition of the orangutan that I wrote a letter to the zoo making it clear how I felt. So I was happy to see that he now has a nice enclosure, designed like a rainforest with water, lots of trees etc. But it's still the primates that upset me the most. You can look into their eyes and they just look bored/unhappy. As for the orangutan, even thoug he has a new house, he wasn't going to be looked at. he'd pulled this hessian bag over his head.
And this little face
But the one that really got me was this one.
