The welfare of zoo animals is becoming increasingly important. The authors of this book believe that a good zoo exerts utmost effort in providing for the animals, the visitors and the conservation of species.
On the one hand, the authors address zoo managers in this book, imploring them to make animal welfare a priority. On the other hand, they speak to the caretakers – the ones who work closely with the animals, day after day.
