Abstract/Summary Despite their popularity and place in our tourism history, in recent years zoos have undergone considerable change in both their structure and function. Whilst remaining attractive places to visit, zoos now seek a new image – one that emphasizes their role in conservation and public education. However, changes in public expectations and the zoo’s own objectives mean that today there is far more scrutiny of the way in which their animals are managed and utilised.
