There are many donations and rescues and surrenders of these elegant beasts that should never have been taken from the wild. My heart hurt the entire trip through the "habitats" which were double wired enclosures and nothing like natural habitat in which these were meant to live.
Donations are being made daily to improve the habitats. It is far better than the conditions from which they came. They are fed, healthy but beyond that I can not guess. I was over come with such a sadness that I felt that maybe their death would be more humane than their unnatural existence. BUT you know I'm weird anyway so for people who want to see these animals, purchases go for their upkeep.
May you see the beauty beyond the wire.
On the bright side the tour was educational and informative.
The boys thought the guide was cute.
