Mammoths at the Zoo?

Recently, I was invited to guest-blog over at's site, Bemusement.  Blooloop caters to the attractions industry as a whole, but is committed to increasing coverage of zoos and aquariums.  Because many of Bemusement's readers are unfamiliar with the vast challenges facing zoos on a day-to-day basis, I wanted my first post to serve as a backgrounder on zoos while also addressing an interesting and timely topic, de-extinction.  By examining de-extinction in the context of zoos, I found some interesting and unexpected corollaries between the two related, yet often ethically controversial, topics. Read my post at Bemusement here, and stay tuned for my monthly contributions.
