The History of Humans Looking at Animals in Zoos

Spending an afternoon at the zoo is a Minot privilege we’ve enjoyed for nearly a hundred years. Visit the zoo today and you’ll immediately see the commitment and respect our Zoo staff has for their facility and the animals they’re charged with caring for.

It’s in light of our current and future investments at the zoo that this article from CityLab is particularly relevant. Anytime we can see the perspective of a person who has studied and thought deeply on a topic, it’s worth taking note. It’s not very often when that person and knowledge become accessible at such an opportune time. Check out the article below on the design and architectural history of zoos and imagine how we might take this information and apply it to the future of the Roosevelt Park Zoo.
