Petition Against the Approval of New Zoological Parks

The keeping and exhibition of exotic and native animals in zoos is cruel, inhumane and unnecessary for public education about animals, nor does it further the conservation of endangered animals in their natural habitats. Zoo-confined animals have only a limited ability to express their natural behaviours and often suffer from zoochosis, a condition  whereby boredom, anxiety and stress triggers obsessive, repetitive acts such as swaying, pacing and over-grooming. The requested change to the Exhibited Animals Protection Act 1986 is intended to preclude the approval of any future development applications for zoological parks including the recently proposed Sydney Zoo at Western Sydney Parklands, Bungaree.
