I was pleasantly surprised.
Yes, the topic of population management culling was addressed, but in a thoughtful manner that provoked conversation, not shrill screaming.

Population management is a complicated subject. The best storytellers have a knack for taking a complicated subject and reshaping it in such a manner that an audience finds it easy to understand, compelling to follow. Genetics and demographics can be hard to relate to - after all, it's not how we pick our mates - but everyone understands Match.com. I plan on using this program to help educate new staff members about SSPs and cooperative breeding programs. I would recommend that zoos share it to their websites to help better explain the issue to their visitors.
