The Bronx Zoo was one of the first to take animals out of small cages and put them in natural habitats, and to observe the animals carefully to find out how to help them thrive in a zoo setting. It took some very special people who were willing to do whatever it took (for example, Raymond Ditmars stole goldfish out of a public fountain to keep a snake alive) to create the zoo as it is today.
