Recently, I had the chance to visit Zurich Switzerland for some office work. During the visit, I visited the Zurich Zoo (Zooh! as it is called).

The zoo is quite wonderful and is a very different experience from the ones found most commonly in India. In India, most zoos are simple affairs with animals in cages. Few zoos have open spaces for the animals. One of the better zoos is the Nehru Zoo in Hyderabad.

The Zurich zoo uses an ‘open’ plan where animals have sufficiently large holding areas and people get to observe the animals in quite a ‘natural’ environment
