Time to improve our zoos

Zoos across South and South East Asia are in need of a complete paradigm shift. Rather than be exhibitions only, they need to become places for education and awareness about animals.

For a region with such biodiversity, South and South East Asian nations should have much better-quality zoos, with better facilities for animal research and care. The main reason why these facilities are so poor is because of a lack of funding. Therefore it is extremely important for governments to recognise this problem, and to look for a solution working with conservation and scientific experts.

And because the same problem persists in Bangladesh also, I hope the Bangladesh government too will look into the matter.
