Over the years I've come across a few examples of signage in zoos that explain a little more about the stories and "personality" or traits of individual animal kept on display and I always find them interesting. I think that we humans are a species innately attracted to stories and narratives and that these sorts of additions to a zoo enclosure / exhibit help the visitor connect to an individual animal rather than viewing them as ciphers. What do zoochatters think about this topic ? Does signage that reveals more about the story / life history of an individual animal in a zoo help to generate interest in a species and its ex-situ conservation ? Can you think of some examples of these kind of displays that you have seen in a zoo that are particularly effective ?
