National Zoo Lovers Day

I love a zoo, so much so that I when I say that I am going away I get asked if I’ll be going to a zoo when I’m there – if they have one of course.  Zoo’s or menageries as they were then known became popular during the early 1800’s as a form of entertainment and wonder, whereas not they are more about conservation and education.

Zoo Lovers Day is a great excuse to get your family together, friends or partner and take a trip to see local and exotic animals of the world. Let’s be fair, it’s not like you can see lions prowling in your back garden or playful monkeys swinging through the trees on your commute to work or a pack of coyotes eyeing up their next kill – well unless you’re at the Next Boxing Day sale.
