The Darling Downs Zoo has been running a survey on it's Facebook page in an effort to gauge visitor expectations of it's future exotic animal content. We are well aware of the limitations of such a survey and the risks involved in interpreting some of the results. However, the number of "votes" for some exotic species have really surprised us so we thought that we would run a similar survey here. New exhibited animal laws in the Australian State of Queensland will eventually make it possible for us to keep exotic species that have previously been denied to us. This will open up some exciting new opportunities for Queensland zoos to participate in more ZAA ASMP managed programs as well as non-managed conservation programs and should also help to drive visitation by allowing us to compete on a more level playing field with zoos in other States. So, keeping in mind our desire to expand our efforts in captive conservation/preservation management, our need to have a point of difference from other south-east Queensland zoos and our climate [hot, stormy summers, cold, dry winters, low humidity] and our geographical position [120 kilometres inland, 600 metres above sea level] what species would ZooChatters suggest as newcomers to the Darling Downs Zoo? Broadly speaking, the categories are large carnivores, small carnivores, apes, medium sized primates, small primates, large ungulates, medium sized ungulates, rodents, birds and reptiles. While you are at it we would also be interested in your thoughts about new Aussie species that we could support. We will compare ZooChat input with Facebook input in about a week or so.
