David Hancocks: The Future of Zoos
The former director of Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo addresses the future of modern zoos--and particularly the place of elephants in them. Today's zoos need to change fundamentally, says David Hancocks - who has already led one revolution in zoo design (in the 80's and 90's). Zoos need to do more, he says - not only for the well-being of individual creatures, but for the welfare of the planet. In 2112, he says, people will look back on a century of heartbreaking biodiversity losses. Zoos could help neutralize that forecast by becoming ecology centers--focusing less on big animals and more on holistic natural systems and the interdependence between all living things. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
