Today, I decided to take the day off and went to Taronga Zoo in advance of the Oceans of Plastic event. Like most people with an interest in conservation and animal welfare, I have mixed feelings about zoos. In an ideal world, we wouldn’t need them; unfortunately, we do not live in an ideal world and zoos are an increasingly important bastion of biodiversity.
They are also a place where you can go and marvel at nature. And what a marvellous chap this is:
How anyone can look at that and think, “I really must shoot that” (other than with a camera), is totally beyond me.
