Browse a collection of nearly 700,000 pieces of ancient Chinese imperial artifacts and artworks, making it one of the largest of its type in the world. WHEN the Warsaw Zoo was bombed during World War II, killing most of the animals, the zookeepers devised a dangerous plan: they decided to use the cages and enclosures to hide more than 300 Jews who were fleeing the Nazis.
After I wrote about this true story in “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” readers shared their outrage with me about the bombing of a zoo, which they regarded almost as a sacrilege. The relatively quiet, parklike setting offers an oasis in the crowded, noisy, stressful, morally ambiguous world where humans tend to congregate.
The random gibbering and roaring, cackling and hooting, yowling and grunting strike ancient chords in us, a feral harmony that intrigues and lulls. Smells create a subtle olfactory landscape that stirs us: from the sweet drops that male elephants dribble from glands near their eyes in mating season to the scent signposts of lions, hyenas and other animals.
A 2009 study by animal scientists in Japan showed that zoo visitors leave with significantly lower blood pressure, and they report feeling less stressed. That so many of us, hundreds of millions worldwide, visit zoos each year is also a comment on our times and the marginalization of wild animals from our lives.
It’s mainly in films and TV documentaries that we see animals in their natural settings, but on the screen they’re dwarfed, flattened, interrupted by commercials, narrated over and not accompanied by the mixed scents of grass, dung and blood; the drone of flies and cicadas; the welling of sweat. Let’s set aside for the moment the debate about whether zoos are essential arks and educators or cruel wardens of unhappy animals, because arguments on both sides are compelling.
Many of the visitors studied by zoo researchers express a deep rapport with at least one animal and concern for the rest of its species, as well as a better idea of how humans fit into the natural world. In one study, inner-city parents said they visited with their children partly to help promote family values and inspire a concern for animals.
What a lonely species we are, searching for signals of life from other galaxies, adopting companion animals, visiting parks and zoos to commune with other beasts. Poet, essayist, and naturalist, Diane Ackerman is the author of two dozen highly acclaimed works of nonfiction and poetry, including A Natural History of the Senses and The Zookeeper’s Wife.
