Summary, etc.: For thousands of years we have taken animals out of the wilderness and put them in caged enclosures for our own amusement. However, with our contemporary understanding about the complexity of animal behavior, and the fact that most of us can see animals in their natural environment on TV, can we really justify keeping them in cages? In this film Liz Bonnin, a PhD student at the Zoological Society of London, visits zoos and speaks to scientists across the globe. From captive breeding programs and conservation, to education and welfare, Liz evaluates the role zoos have to play in the 21st century.
