At the end of June, it was revealed that zoo jobs were being filled by zoo workers, who are now being paid to preserve wild wildlife.
Zoo jobs and exotics have long been associated with the United States.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which oversees wildlife in the country, defines exotics as “wildlife animals and plants that are not native to the United, States or Canada and/or are endangered or threatened.”
In the last decade, the number of zoos in the United Kingdom and Australia has soared.
While the number is still relatively low in Australia, the percentage of zos in the U.K. has doubled since 2000.
In 2013, there were over 50,000 zoos and exotic animal exhibits in the world, according to a study by the World Wildlife Fund.
That number is expected to increase by another 30% in the next decade.
The zoo jobs are paying the living wage, which means the zoos are making enough to live on and are still doing well, according the UESF.
The UESG is the largest animal welfare organization in the nation, and according to its website, is committed to working with governments to address animal welfare issues.
“While the UESA supports the creation of the best possible conditions for wildlife, we also believe that working together with the government is the best way to address wildlife exploitation,” the UEF website states.
