I started thinking about all these posts about tropical animals extremely rare in zoos, which turn up as rehabilitated in their native range is substandard zoos or 'sanctuaries'. African golden cats, marbled cats, too many cattle-killing leopards to count, whatever. Most of them live short and sad lives in substandard conditions and have no chance to breed. Maybe they educate some local people about wildlife. Could zoos make a concrete effort to get such animals to good conditions? Match single rescues into pairs? Import them to start new breeding programs, maybe exchanging for another animal with educational value? In the age of internet and social media, one can know there is a rare animal in a zoo in the tropics.
