Found this interesting news article from 2012 about the struggle of zoos to choose which animals to save and which to leave to their fates. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/28/science/zoos-bitter-choice-to-save-some-species-letting-others-die.html?_r=0 Two things. First, are lion-tailed macaques indeed being phased out? I believe the population in North America is quite old now, and they seem to be disappearing from collections. The article specifically mentions Saint Louis not breeding any of their macaques; as it happens, the last time I visited the macaques were not on display and the signage for them was gone. Zoos that recently held lion-tailed macaques are: Alexandria (sent them on loan to somewhere else?), Assiniboine Park (sent to China and another Canadian zoo, I assume Toronto), Birmingham, Baton Rouge, Cheyenne Mountain, Cincinnati, Detroit, El Paso, Jackson, Lee Richardson, Louisiana Purchase, Baltimore, Memphis, Prospect Park, Reid Park, Riverbanks, Saint Louis, San Diego, San Francisco, Smithsonian, Toronto, and Woodland Park. Does anyone know how many of these zoos are still holders? (Besides Assiniboine Park, which I know is not) Second: Saint Louis was planning an exhibit for walruses!? (Not the purpose of this thread, but I just thought it was fascinating).
