I never know whether I should hate or love zoos; I feel bad about displaying captive animals but I’m aware of the fact that there are also many benefits of keeping animals in captivity. If zoos are done well, they can actually play a very important role. For instance, some zoos seek to protect endangered species or they rehabilitate injured wildlife.
Here are some photos from our recent visit to Rostock Zoo. FYI, Rostock Zoo was founded in 1899 and it covers 56 hectares. There are 4,500 animals from 320 species.
