It was my husband’s first time at the Phx Zoo and I have been there many, many times over the years, especially when the kids were toddlers and before they went to school.
They have made a lot of nice changes and upgrades to the zoo in the past year. Very nice. The ticket boxes are now at the front of the zoo and now to exit the zoo, you MUST go through the gift shop. How convenient.
The orangutan enclosure is maybe like 4-6x than the last time, but like the cheetah enclosure is so small. Some of the animals that naturally run, it’s sad the area is so small.
We both took many pictures. I had a partial battery and that ran out quickly. Then, my spare battery ran out, too. 1 month ago

I completed this goal on my list three years ago, and even then when I attended the zoo I felt a little sorry for the animals caged there.
I sometimes think about this goal being on my 43things completed list and it makes me feel bad now that I have such different views on the topic of zoos. I didn’t think zoos were that bad three years ago, my views have drastically changed since then and I don’t feel right having it on my completed list so I thought I would alter the entry instead of removing the completed goal entirely.
I will not be attending any zoos in the future, although I would visit an animal sanctuary. 3 years ago
