Problem

Failure of the zoo as an educational institution

Other Names:
Outmoded zoos
Obsolete zoological gardens
Outdated practice of display of captive animals
Incidence:
London Zoo, the first to open, in 1826, may be the first to close. Attendance has long been slipping and this is attributed by its critics to a mixture of fiscal ineptitude, poor maintenance, mediocre exhibits, lacklustre programmes, disregard for visitor services, bad management and an adherence to an outmoded philosophy.
