My Sunday Photos – Symbio Zoo

My Sunday Photo for this week is a collection of my favourite photos from our recent visit to Symbio Zoo.

Zoos are strange places and they fill me with conflicting emotions. On the one hand I am able to see some of the most amazing creatures from around the world, up close and live. There’s something really special about that. On the other hand, I feel a huge amount of sadness for these brilliant animals that have been removed from their natural habitat and are living the rest of their lives in captivity.

Symbio Zoo does appear to be very aware of this. They really do appear to have put a lot of effort into creating appropriate enclosures. They are also very strong on conservation and the role that they can play in protecting some species from extinction.

The photos that I have chosen to include in this post today are my top photos from out visit. They are some of the most photogenic animals I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing! Hannah had a wonderful day meeting these amazing animals too.

      Those monkeys were so much fun to photograph! I wasn’t able to get a shot of one jumping, which was what I really wanted.

    Your photos are stunning. I know what you mean about zoos, but it does seem that these days they are as much about conservation and welfare as about entertaining the public. #MySundayPhoto

      Yes, that does seem to be the way. No sad-looking animals in tiny concrete enclosures. It’s much more enjoyable for everyone involved.

    What gorgeous photos of the animals. Zoos do a lot of good work from a conservation point of view but there is something very sad about seeing these animals living their lives in captivity.
