Honolulu Zoo, 1982: Me, Lisa, and Maria.
There have been a number of improvements to the zoo, since this photo was taken.
Alas, there are some individuals who are calling for the closure of the Honolulu Zoo, because it is considered too expensive to run. I think it would be a shame to close it, as it is educational for the young children who visit it.
Besides the Honolulu Zoo, Oahu also boasts Sea Life Park and the Waikiki Aquarium. David and I have been to all three venues many times and enjoyed ourselves.
Sure, activists feel that it is cruel to enclose animals and that these creatures should be released into the wilderness. They have a point.
Vegetarians feel the same way, I suppose. Why eat meat, when it means animals have to be slaughtered?
Sorry, I am neither an animal rights activist nor a vegetarian. I happen to be a carnivore, who likes to eat meat as well as visit the Zoo, Sea Life Park, and the Aquarium.
How do you feel about all of this?
