Can zoo animals be protected? How can we reconcile the exploitative and voyeuristic human view with conservation? Join the discussion!

The third event in the Terrible Beauty discussion series is dedicated to the controversial theme of conservation and zoological gardens. Where are animals’ rights to a habitat? Can we talk of animal welfare at all, while animals are perceived as livestock and providers of nutrition? How can we respect the rights of animals, and what would we have to give up to do so? Amir Khalil, a veterinary surgeon, and Jenny Kasten, political scientist, will be discussing these and many other questions with the audience. Join us at the table; bring your perspectives and questions!
