Sad News From Surabaya (From Bali With Love)

News from Surabaya Zoo, Indonesia's largest zoo, explains that in the next five years, many of their animals, including critically, endangered species, will be dead.

They have, on average, 25 animals that die each month. Some of old age or health problems, but many die due to stress from overcrowded, outdated, dirty cages. The facility was built 94 years ago under Dutch rule and is occupied by around 4,200 animals. Recently deceased animals included a Sumatran tiger, African lion and Australian kangaroo.

This is just so sad. I hope they find a way soon to move these animals to a new facility!
