    Do you prefer zoos that focus solely on native species, or zoos that focus solely on foreign species?

    Examples:
    - Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum: Native
    - London Zoo: Foreign
    - Wildwood (Britain): Native
    - Rotterdam Zoo: Foreign

    I prefer a mixture of both native and foreign species as I enjoy seeing a large variety of species in zoos.

    I prefer both. People want to see exotics but it's also good to see native species in your own area. The Minnesota Zoo does this well.
