Support wild animals

I had mixed feelings reading about the large donations of Albert and Winifred Sami to Zoo Miami in the Aug. 16 article, Zoo Miami’s Ron Magill reveals identity of long-anonymous donors of millions. While one can’t dispute the generosity, the shame is that zoo animals, despite any talk of education and conservation are kept captive for life, and treated as exhibits for public amusement; the complete opposite to what would come naturally to them in the wild.
