Failure of the zoo as an educational institution

Other Names:
Outmoded zoos
Obsolete zoological gardens
Outdated practice of display of captive animals

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.
