New Scientific Analysis Debunks Zoos’ Education Claims

From In Defense of Animals -

San Rafael, Calif. – A new scientific critique questions claims by zoos and aquariums to be educating the public, finding that a key study conducted by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) is fatally flawed in its conclusions. IDA is calling on zoos and aquariums to stop misleading the public and admit they have no evidence that zoos have a positive educational impact.

“There is no compelling evidence to date that zoos and aquariums promote attitude changes, education or interest in conservation in their visitors, despite claims to the contrary,” stated lead author Dr. Lori Marino, a neuroscientist at Emory University and expert in dolphin and whale intelligence.

Ninety-Five - 1st Runner Up, Culture Category for the Eric Hoffer Award!

 Ninety-Five has won first runner up in the culture category for the Eric Hoffer Award!

The full list is here:

Here is the The US Review of Books: The Eric Hoffer Award:

Rather than write a book exposing modern agricultural practices and promoting animal rights, the editor of a book about farm animals, oddly titled Ninety-Five, explains that he simply decided to introduce readers to farm animals. Ninety-Five  consists of a number of portraits of a variety of rescued farm animals-among them, Gilly the hen, Sophie the pig, and Justice the steer-all beautifully written and accompanied by vibrant photographs. The stories of the animals surprise with their revelations of their personalities, relationships and emotions, yet never come across as sentimental. The book's title is a reference to the average number of animals that are saved each year through one person's vegan diet. After reading Ninety-Five, perhaps you will reconsider your eating habits.
