David Shumaker's picture

"Look, Daddy!"

In the same line as my photo "Conflicted", this one brings me to the question of whether or not the zoo is an ethical entity. I love it, and yet I hate it. Obviously it makes this photo possible, but is an image worth keeping this Sumatran Orangutan captive. Or does its endangered status mean that we are helping to keep it alive by keeping it in a zoo? I have more questions than answers.
