Word association: Zoo edition

What do you think of when you hear the word “zoo”? How about wildlife research?  Education?  Conservation?

Playtime for Animals

The jury is still out on why exactly animals play, but it sure is fun to watch!  In fact, as one of the prime spots to watch animals, zoos and aquariums are contributing to research that helps us understand more about the wide spectrum of animal behaviors.  You can do your own observations when you visit a zoo or aquarium by spending time watching your favorite animal.
