The New Zoos [videorecording]

written, produced and directed by John Angier, Graham Chedd, Jill Singer
Format
Video; VHS
Summary
Today's zoos have taken on a new look. With it comes a new philosophy -- work being done in "new zoos" can help wild animal populations survive and thrive. Where zoo residents were once captured from the wild, today's captive breeding programs are helping to replenish wild populations. And knowledge gained by studying animals in zoos is helping scientists learn how to protect many wild animals whose habitat is shrinking.
