What a great set of photos! Lovely to be in a Zoo. As a child I loved to visit Zoos. I still do.

It has been so long since I was able to go to the zoo. We have a Living Museum close by and there they take in wounded animals and rehab them. If they can return to the wild they do, but those who can't have a permanent home and act as ambassadors for others of their species.
