What we should enjoy…

Zoos and aquariums are vital “in a world that grows ever more threatening to creatures in the wild.” But there was a “thin line between education and entertainment, between legitimate research and exploitation.”

“What we should enjoy, perhaps, is not their performance, but the mere fact of their existence. That, we believe, is wonder enough.”
