-Zoo World is much too small for these large herd animals.
-Giraffes are in fact herd animals that need room for exercise and socialization.
-Zoo World, please expand and update the enclosures for the 250+ animals that you have.
We can not allow more large herd animals to be crammed into such a small space on the beach! Zoo world has very little funding for the amount of animals (250+) that it cares for! They intend on buying more giraffes after the last giraffe died last month. This zoo is an extremely small "zoo" located in the tourist destination of Panama City Beach. The "zoo" is much too small for large animals, the enclosures are extremely small, and the animals look miserable, depressed and bored. Recently I pushed for the giraffe, Sydney, to have a larger enclosure. I discussed the issue with numerous people at Zoo World. One of which was the project manager and designer of the enclosures, he laughed stating "Animals do not need to move!! They move only for food and sex. Do you think they would run if they didn't have to?" They expanded the poor giraffe's enclosure by 600 square feet. The giraffe died recently and now Zoo World is raising money from the public to purchase yet another giraffe. This needs to stop. Zoo World is too small to offer this herd animal a good environment. Animals need exercise to stay healthy both physically and mentally. Join us on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Zoo-World-is-Too-Small-for-Another-Lonely-Giraffe/407840125944961?ref=hl
