Zoos, Tiershows oder ähnliches sind Quälerei für alle Tiere! Bitte meidet das!
Denn die Nachfrage bestimmt alles!

Keine Besuche mehr = keine Shows oder Zoos mehr

Zum Thema #Osterlockdown hier eine wichtige Veröffentlichung der DTG:… und ein Thread von uns. 👇 (1/5)
Moderne Zoos und Aquarien bieten das, was man an Ostern braucht: Sichere Orte für Familien. Hier können sie mit Abstand eine sehr lehrreiche Zeit verbringen. Daher ist es sinnvoll, die Zoologischen Gärten offen zu halten:

Dazu ist es eine Investition in die Zukunft, die #Zoos und #Aquarien nicht zu ruinieren, denn sie sind Teil der Lösung und nicht des Problems:…

Daher wirkt eine Schließung langfristig wie ein Bumerang. (3/5)

Thank goodness we have a real opposition now that reacts to a global pandemic with a forensic call to, er, close zoos.

Me and the family went to ZSL #LondonZoo today, had a great time and saw all the #animals. Here's a short thread. Some highlights: Western lowland gorilla, Sumatran tiger, Komodo dragon, Galapagos giant tortoise... ImageImageImageImage
Just a few of the literally 100s of birds at #LondonZoo: Woolly-necked stork, Northern crested caracaras (big, semi-terrestrial American falcons) and Red and yellow barbet. Barbets are members of the woodpecker group; some are close kin of toucans. #birds #animals #zoos ImageImageImage
Some #reptiles: the remarkably yellow Cuming's water monitor, an awesome Reticulated python (cue #HarryPotter link), Big-headed turtle (able to climb, prehensile-tailed) and Rio Fuerte beaded lizard... #lizards #snakes #squamates #turtles ImageImageImageImage

Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Join us, share your #photographs of the #Firefox of the #Himalayas.

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

📷Senthil Murugan

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.
