35 Zoo Innovations

From Panda Survival School to Lesbian Breeding Attempts

— June 11, 2010 — Eco
Zoos have come a long way since their inception, and the zoo innovations in this cluster prove just that.

Even with everything including panda survival school, lesbian breeding attempts, endangered LEGO exhibits and invisible lion cages, we've still got a lot more zoo innovations to come to ensure a better life for the wild animals that roam the planet.

Implications - Without a doubt, there are many people out in the world that have a genuine love for animals. One of the best ways to get up close and personal with these feathered, furry or scaly creatures is to visit a zoo. Zoos that create new ways for consumers to get a wild animal experience are revitalizing an old-school idea in order to draw more people to their establishments, a strategy that can be applied across industries.
