The exhibition “Not Born to Perform” organized by the Animals Asia Foundation is an anticruelty campaign meant to shock and communicate visitors the message that animal performance is cruel. Last April the Foundation teamed up with the Beijing Zoo who agreed to host the exhibition.
There are many urban zoos, wildlife parks and aquariums in China that still operate recreational animal shows. However, consciousness about the issue has grown recently causing a positive change. There’s still work to do but this first step taken by the Beijing Zoo has set a precedent for all other zoological gardens in China. The organizations hope more zoos join this campaign and make an outstanding commitment to ending animal performance.
