Once, quite a long time ago, before the moon glistened in the night sky and the birds sang in the Palo Verde tree, there lived the first tribe of humans. These humans, like all living creatures, were made by the Great Creator who would whittle the creatures from the bark of a great oak tree. He would breathe life into them, giving them a soul and instilling a true sense of purpose. In this tribe, a father and his 14 year old daughter lived, her mother having passed during childbirth.

On July 20th, 1874, the first zoo in the united states was opened in Philadelphia. When opened it featured animals in cages with steel bars and cement flooring. Now one-hundred and forty-three years later it’s a sprawling zoo that focuses on educating its attendees and providing amazing enclosures for the animals. The Philadelphia zoo now features a meerkat maze which gives the meerkats a large funnel system to run around simulating their natural habitat; it also features the Big Cat Crossing which allows animals such as the tigers, lions, pumas, and jaguars to travel across walkways providing much needed free space to prowl (About). Zoos are much needed education centers and research locations to study animals and how to better their lives in and outside captivity.
