What's it like to work in a zoo?

These people firmly believe that animals should be left in the wild, their natural habitat. Dr. Grey Stafford agrees, that is, if the only choice is a bad zoo. But if the collection of creatures is responsibly cared for medically, nutritionally and emotionally, the director of conservation at Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium believes the animals lives are better where they can be seen and appreciated by all of us.
