Stone Zoo

I have mixed feelings about zoos. On one hand, they confine animals to small areas that can’t truly capture native habitats. On the other hand, they contribute to research and they also give an entry point to youth who may be inspired by nature and the environment, and to adults who may never have the opportunity to visit different habitats on earth. Today, I visited the Stone Zoo. We went because two snow leopard kitties were born this summer and have recently begun coming out. And they’re worth seeing; the zoomed in iphone photo below doesn’t do them justice. But I also saw just how engaging the zoo is for kids and families, from different walks of life. And there’s some value to that. So I also made a donation.
