Costa Rica Is Shutting Down All Zoos And Freeing Every Animal In Captivity
Costa Rica is going to be the first country in the world that has shut down the zoos and release the animals held in captivity. Costa Rica is known for its great biodiversity and holds around 4% of the world’s known species.
Unfortunately, there are contracts that obligate Costa Rica to keep two of its zoos open for ten more years. When the contracts expire, they are planning on shutting the zoos down and freeing the animals that live there in cages into their natural habitats.
Treehugger says that Costa Rica also has banned hunting as a sport, and know closes the zoos, because they want to give animals the least they deserve, free life in their natural habitats. The message they send to the world is that everybody should pay respect to the animals and take care of them.
Rene Castro, environmental minister explains that they want to get rid of cages and interact with the animals and their biodiversity in a natural way, in botanical parks for example.
He adds that the only way they will keep animal enclosed is if the animals needed some kind of help, when they need to be saved from some danger.
The animals that have lived in captivity and were later released into the wild and face issues when it comes to surviving will be taken in special rescue centers and wildlife sanctuaries. The zoos will become a past.
