Zoos & Aquariums
Zoos and aquariums have been an important part of how we explore and catalog our world for centuries. Once reserved for royalty, the first public zoo opened in Austria in 1765. Since then, much has changed in our perceptions of the environment and the natural world. Today, zoos and aquariums are much more than displays of interesting and exotic animals - they are also vessels for spreading the message about wildlife conservation. Aquariums, zoos and animal parks have had to balance their conservation goals with the needs of modern, tech-savvy audiences.
