German photographer Elias Hassos tells a sad story through these photos. These are easily the most depressing zoo animals you will ever see.
The revolutionary “Zoo of the Future” movement, which originated in Leipzig, offers one concept of what a zoo should look like:
“Zoo of the Future” they call the new concept in Leipzig, “Adventure Zoo” in Hannover and “Zoom adventure world” in Gelsenkirchen. These three form the German vanguard of a movement that has already begun in the U.S. and the Netherlands. It combines the zoo with botanical gardens, multimedia science show and Disneyland-elements, a much-praised mix of infotainment, Nature Conservation and safari getaway.
