I searched thoroughly and didn't see another post about this!

I got to see this car (and touch it, but don't tell anyone!) at the Royal British Columbia Museum in 2011 while visiting Victoria, BC!!  My sister and I walked in the door and the first thing we see was John's car!  Of course I am beyond thrilled and start snapping pic's & going on & on while my sister laughs at me!  There were security guards there as well as signs saying to NOT touch the car.  But how can you NOT touch a car that belonged to a Beatle?!  While I was touching..my sis kept saying "OMG!  Alarms are going to go off!  They are going to arrest you"!  LOL  It was worth the risk.  BEAUTIFUL CAR! Really cool to see a-hard-days-night-john-1heart

While I'm no great fan of the majority of zoos, I do think there are those who do fantastic work in the preservation of species. LHL's statement that "Once an animal has been in captivity, it cannot go back into the wild" is wrong. Many of the leading zoos in the world are involved in reintroduction projects, and to my mind is one of their main justifications. Reintroduction projects are something that have interested me, and are having an increasingly successful impact. There is an example of a successful reintroduction programme in your own country, LHL, which involves Toronto Zoo.

The black-footed ferret was declared extinct in Canada in 1978. In 2009 34 animals from the Toronto Zoo captive breeding project were released into the Grasslands National Park. Within a year, as part of the monitoring of the project, the first black-footed ferrets born in the wild since their extinction were identified. The Grasslands National Park now has a growing population of black-footed ferrets, the first since they became extinct, and all because of work done by, and animals bred by, Toronto Zoo.

There are many other examples from across the world. Too many zoos are allowed to exist while doing little to nothing in the way of meaningful conservation or reintroduction (and I would close them all), but there is that small percentage whose work is hugely important unless we are to just give up on every species on the endangered list and let them go the way of the dodo.
