A little after-note to my conservation memorial post from the other day... if we want the next generation to appreciate conservation, it never hurts to start at an early age! I found this (not sure why it won't let me post the actual video, here's the link below). The last Carolina parakeet died in a zoo. So did the last quagga, the last passenger pigeon, and the last thylacine. I hope that in the future we are able to keep animals in the wild, or failing that, in zoos... and out of natural history museums.
