The Zoo - fortunately a zoo nowadays is more to do with wildlife conservation of animals. Yet the word Zoo means an establishment which keeps animals for study, conservation, or display to the public. Animal conservation has come a long way, still plenty to do however.
A program the other night shown here in Australia Victoria filmed in Africa showed how baby orphaned elephants were being rescued and given the chance to survive. Great filming, very emotional. Elephants are a grand animal. Thats probably why I chose to draw a baby elephant with a young child. They both need care and nurturing. When next you find yourself observing an animal, ponder on "Who is looking at who?"
