Usually I feel guilty visiting zoos, however we decided to visit whilst wandering around Yangon. I really wish we hadn’t. I found it incredibly depressing and left feeling utterly heartbroken. The animals are living in awful conditions and it is so sad to see. The...More

Terrible place, where the animals are kept in tiny enclosures. Most of them in individual closures so that the animals never have contact with any other animals. Most of the animals looked in bad condition and it broke my heart walking round. Subsequently I never...More

I admit, I like zoos, although I always feel a little guilty because well, it’s a zoo, and intellectually I know that zoos aren’t ethical, but damnit, I like zoos. I’ve been to several zoos in various countries, and some were excellent (Prague), and some...More
