This presentation will focus in a broader sense on the reasons why it is important to question the “business” of zoos and the captivity of wild animals for our entertainment. Behind the marketing discourse – the greenwashing – of zoos, animals are suffering. Alexandra will question the arguments of the conservation, education and research often been defended by zoos. We will also ask ourselves what is the link between the zoo and the fashion of wild animals in private homes and why it is urgent to question our relationship with other animals for the conservation of biodiversity.
