Cobblestone: America's Zoos (August 1990 Magazine Issue)
"Today zoos house their charges in settings that resemble the animals' natural environments as much as possible. Animals live in groups similar to their normal social gatherings in the wild. This keeps them comfortable so they are able to reproduce. At least ninety percent of the mammals in America's zoos today were bred and born in zoos; very few were taken from the wild." — From "The View From the Crow's Nest" (page 5)

GOOD: This issue of “The History Magazine for Young People” is in good condition, showing some signs of use and wear. The pages are free of writing. The previous owner’s address label has been covered.
Since this issue is from the early 1990s, it is in black-and-white, rather than in today’s full-color issues. The content, however, is still relevant.
From the introduction: “The word ‘zoo’ is short of zoological park or garden. Zoology is the study of animals. Living up to their name, modern zoos conduct studies on the conservation of animal species both within their boundaries and around the world. Zoos protect many endangered species, and breeding programs work to enlarge their shrinking populations. Just as Noah was said to have saved many animals from the flood by taking them onto his ark, zoos today consider themselves arks for endangered species.”
