Wild Not Zoo

You will learn far more from one of David Attenborough’s wildlife documentaries, than you will watching animals trying to sleep at a zoo in a totally artificial environment. Studying animals in a zoo is like studying humanity by watching people in solitary confinement. As 3D animal photography matures, the difference will be even more pronounced. It is possible to create a realistic environment only for very small animals like tropical fish and lizards. Consider that a dolphin can swim hundreds of miles a day in the wild. There is no way to simulate that in a tank.
