Zoo World: Stop buying giraffes!!

To be delivered to Zoo World President, The Florida State House, The Florida State Senate, and Governor Rick Scott

Petition Statement

Zoo World: Please do not buy another lonely giraffe. They are herd animals that need room to run. Expand the enclosures for the animals that you have.
There are currently 3,108 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Zoo World is an extremely small "zoo" located in the tourist destination of Panama City Beach. The "zoo" is much too small for large animals, the enclosures are extremely small, and the animals look miserable, depressed and bored. Recently I pushed for the giraffe, Sydney, to have a larger enclosure. I discussed the issue with numerous people at Zoo World. One of which was the project manager and designer of the enclosures, he laughed stating "Animals do not need to move!! They move only for food and sex. Do you think they would run if they didn't have to?" They expanded the poor giraffe's enclosure by 600 square feet. The giraffe died recently and now Zoo World is raising money from the public to purchase TWO baby giraffes. This needs to stop. Zoo World is too small and doesn't have enough funds to offer this herd animal a good environment. Animals DO need exercise to stay healthy, both physically and mentally.
