Question
Dear Prof Walter

Do you feel it is possible in future for
Zoos privatisation in India and abroad?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hi Prashant
 Your question got me interested in zoos so I did some looking around and I found that there are many private zoos in the USA and I assume there are a lot of them in other countries. In the US however zoos require an accredidation and there are only 142 zoos that are. There is not much interest in selling these zoos to private individuals.. They are expensive to maintain and are publically funded. I doubt if they would be profitable
 My guess is that the same things would apply in other countries
