Zoo Atlanta provides a unique environment designed to educate young and old alike while entertaining them at the same time. Unlike zoos of old which concentrated primarily on recreation for visitors, zoos nowadays also strive to emphasize the goals of conservation and research in addition to educating the public on an animal's behavior and its status in the wild. Since exhibits contain live animals, every visit is different; no two days are alike as animals' behaviors change. It's always exciting to talk to new guests or witness some unexpected event in an animal's habitat.
