The elephants might barely notice you’re there.
Zoos are meant for animal lovers, and yet many people who love animals don’t love zoos. While it’s fascinating to see tigers and polar bears up close, it’s arguably inhumane to ship creatures thousands of miles only to put them in cages.
So what’s to be done about zoos? In Denmark, which prides itself for its humanity in all things, the answer is this futuristic concept, aptly named Zootopia. Conceived by the Copenhagen-based BIG agency for a planned expansion of the Givskud zoo in Jutland, it’s a vision for a park where animals are free to roam and people are as inconspicuous as possible.
“It is our dream–with Givskud–to create the best possible and freest possible environment for the animals’ lives and relationships with each other and visitors,” BIG says in a press release.
