The term 'zoo' was not used until the early 1800s when the Zoological Society of London
was founded. At the end of World War II, the UK had only fourteen zoos, but in the late fifties and early sixties saw the number of zoos rise, reaching about 250 by the 1980s.
Today zoos are a relic of a bygone age -
a Victorian concept which, as our knowledge of the animal kingdom grows, becomes even less palatable.
