Ethics of Zoos

Thank you all so much for your kind words and sharing your experience both publically and privately about Maizy’s death. It means a lot to me to be part of this broader online community.

Last month I had the opportunity to do a short interview on the local KUOW radio station. The topic was the ethics of zoos. This was in the wake of Bamboo and Chai, the last two elephants at the Woodland Park Zoo, being moved to the Oklahoma City zoo. This move was highly contentious, especially with a California sanctuary for elephants offering to take in the elephants so that they could live out their days in a sanctuary.

Here’s the link to the interview. And if you scroll down further on the page, you can also listen to the pro-zoo perspective.

What do you think about zoos and their place in society?

  1. I heard your segment on the radio and it was wonderful! You are so well spoken and articulate. I’ve always dreamed of being on the radio but I am much too shy and was told at a young age that my voice was not conducive to “comfortable listening”. That is not at all the case for you, you lucky duck!

    Have you ever considered producing a Podcast as a sidecar to the Serenity in the Storm blog?

    Nice to see you back on the blog!
