American Zoos Assocition has a report re visitor learning at zoos

I haven’t read, but just seen in email:

Quote:
The Aza conclusion: "Little to no systematic research has been conducted on the impact of visits to zoos and aquariums on visitor conservation knowledge, awareness, affect, or behavior." So much for their claims that zoos are important for purposes of conservation …

– So might ask: of the tens of thousands of visitors to Ocean Park on a busy day, how many of them depart as supporters of conservation?
