I love the zoo – How about you?


Hi everyone

While I was away in Bristol for the Business Showcase South West, in April of this year, I visited Bristol Zoo.

What do you think?

I hope you have had as much pleasure, looking at these, as I did photographing them.

I still need to re-index and repaginate each page of my Break through the barriers of redundancy book, after re-designing my www.beatredundancyblues.com site that is advertised on the front cover.

I am currently preparing to teach more courses for the Recovery Learning Community, and start my blogging teaching again for this term, on the 22nd of this month.

Write soon
Sandra

  1. While I wish we lived in a world where zoo’s were not necessary and we all had the funds and ability to travel around the globe to see all the creatures in their own environments I accept this is an impossibility however I do wish there was a way to ensure that all nations upheld the standards the zoos here in the UK have as sadly too often there are still reports of animals kept in appalling conditions and countries who will not allow the animals or themselves to be helped in this respect

    1. As an animal lover I agree that every animal should be kept in good conditions. Zoos prevent extinction swell, because of some people interfering in nature and driving them out of their own habitat. I know in Spain, dogs can be out on the streets having to fend for themselves, let alone ‘wild’ animals. I support the work of the Donkey Sanctuary and they go to other countries to help donkeys. Even though I support them, there was one occasion years ago (1996) when I was let down, because I reported a donkey in distress and they didn’t do anything about it, I think they said report it tho the RSPCA.

    1. Hi Carole. Apologies for the delay in replying to you. I guess my favourite animals are the ones with fur. Especially as I have 4 guineapigs. I love looking at the bright and colourful poison dart frogs, but being poisonous, I wouldn’t want them as a pet. I thought the purpley coloured bugs were beautiful to look at. Having had stick insects when I was young, I decided bugs weren’t for me either.

    1. Hi Mike, glad you like the photo of one of the Lizards, they look very similar to me. I think one of them is a Monitor Lizard. I am more in awe looking at the animals, than reading up about them. I do read about some of them, then get so caught up with asking them to pose for me and their beauty, that I forget a lot of what is written.

  2. Very cool photos – and a reminder of just how diverse our world is! Zoos are maybe the best place for us ordinary folks to check out some of the crazier fauna without having to turn into Attenborough and trek hundreds of miles into deepest Nowhereland. Good stuff.

    1. Hi Matthew, apologises for the delay in replying to you. It’s been a hectic week. As always, I appreciate your honest feedback and if you say they are cool photos, then I know they must be fairly decent. I am getting more photographer bloggers following me, so guess I must be doing something right.

      I love zoos and aquariums. They make me feel relaxed and happy. So long as the animals are well cared for, which considering they will pose for me, indicates they are, I think zoos are fantastic. Great for exactly the purpose you say. I think some animals that may have slight deformities, would die in the wild, whereas some zoos will take these animals on. Then there is the prevention of extinction and protection from hunters.
