|Why are zoos outdated and should be closed?|
|Alexandra Morette via Zoom|
This presentation will focus on why it is important to question the business of zoos when we are fighting for animal rights. Behind the marketing discourse of zoos, animals are suffering and are exploited for our own entertainment. Alexandra will question the conservation, educational, and research arguments zoos often put forward. We will also try to explain our campaign on the reconversion of zoos into rescue centers.
