New Artis, The
Artis Zoo is about to undergo a radical renovation. The director is on a mission but isn’t this a threat to his employees and his animals, and to himself?
Artis, the Netherlands’ oldest zoo, is about to undergo the most radical renovation in its 178 years of existence. The inspired managing director has a very clear mission – but is this mission at the same time not a threat to himself, his employees and his animals? And also, how can we look after our environment whilst at the same time wishing to reduce our influence over it?
