Visit The Zoo Day is an annual celebration observed on December 27th of every year. If you are passionate about animals and wanted to know more about their living, you could visit a zoo. It is not only a place where they stay rather it the same place in which lots of studies are taken place about each animal. The zoo is the place that safeguards the animals that are endangered and makes them out of not becoming extinct. Also, the zoo is the only place other than forest where we could see the wild animals. It is possible to look at them in close which is not possible and safe in the forest. Visit The Zoo Day is the best time to have a look at those animals which you hadn’t seen so far. The Day encourages all of us to take a look at nature in a closer perspective.
“I like to do chill things on dates. I think it would be fun to go to the zoo. I know it’s really weird and random, but I love animals. It’d be like a day of doing silly things while enjoying nature.” – Ashlee Simpson
History of Visit The Zoo Day
The origin, history, founder, and the year at which the Visit The Zoo Day was first celebrated are anonymous. The zoo is the place in which the animals are enclosed within the enclosures, and displayed to the public. It is also the place in which they may also be bred. The zoos typically house more wild animals than the domestic animals. A zoo is the shortest form of a zoological garden or zoological park which is also called as a menagerie. The first zoo is in ancient Egypt that dates back to 1500 BC. The idea was passed down, all the way to the 1400s AD when Columbus discovered “The New World“. The first actual zoo was opened in London in 1828. It was created to educate and entertain the people. At present, there are more than 2,800 zoos across the world to which over 6 million people visit them each year. Some zoos are creating special climate conditions for animals like penguins that live in extreme climatic environments.
