Costa Rica to Close Zoos

We don't want animals in captivity or enclosed in any way unless it is to rescue or save them.

Don't miss this piece about the remarkable announcement from the Costa Rican government that it plans to close all zoos and relocate zoo animals to botanical gardens and urban parks to eliminate the practice of caged animals.  Described here is the guiding philosophy and the actions being taken by the government to ensure appropriate placement of those animals who have spent their lives in the controlled environment of zoos.

Let us watch and learn.
