Big Day at the Helsinki Zoo part 6/6.

I do have my reservations regarding zoos… basically I think wild animals should not be imprisoned. But some of the better zoos do valuable educational work and they treat their animals as well as possible.

I spent a day taking photos of animals big and small, and tried to portrait them as individuals. Because that’s what they are, just like us humans.

    Excellent image and write-up. I agree with you. Our animals should be free but when that is not possible, our Zoos should do everything they can to make them think they are. It’s so important that they are happy. Barb

  • Thank you Barb! In zoos children can also learn about animals, specially city kids who are alienated from the nature.
