A bright future for zoo nutrition
Zoo animal feed is a niche market taken to
the extreme, but thanks to the efforts of the recently established European Zoo
Nutrition Centre, it is a rapidly developing one. The first hurdle is to establish
the requirements of the many different species kept captive in zoos, then to
collect and collate the data to re-apply it back into the commercial business
of zoos and conservation. Commercial feeds do exist for zoo animals, but the
market does still appear to have room for expansion.
