EVOLUTION CONNECTION

Zoos get better, more relevant,
when they let captured animals
feel free, live in their natural environment . . .

like the ape and chimpanzee "outside space"
at the St. Louis Zoo.

Here, visitors can "get close"
to their genetic ancestral connections . . .
where we get to study primates up close,
or vice versa!

Who's studying whom?

  2. great pics.
    I'm afraid of apes.
    I think it's a kind of ape-phobia or something but the evolutionary aspect is interesting.

  4. Looks like they are having a very nice conversation! Zoos, if managed properly actually help in the preservation of the species. Do you know that in my language a person is called an orang utan if they start getting forgetful!
