The evaluation points out shortcomings in the licensing systems. Inspections are often carried out by veterinary services with limited knowledge on animal husbandry. Few penalties and closures of zoos take place despite the existing breaches of the Directive, including in already licensed zoos. She mentioned a better coordination between the local, regional and national authorities, as well as the development of an information-sharing platform and training modules for national management authorities.
Moreover, the Directive requests the sharing of information and data related to species conservation.
It has also helped to prevent the opening of new small zoos by amateurs without the knowledge and resources to ensure proper care for the animals. However, progress is not yet sufficient. Too many zoos are still keeping animals under sub-standard conditions. In addition, zoos only take a marginal role in the important task of rescuing, relocation and rehoming animals, for example in case of confiscation from illegal trade, mistreatment or closing of circuses.
Licenses are also delivered to facilities with practices contrary to the conservation objective of the Directive, such as using animals in performances. Published April 5th by Springer first published March 22nd More Details Animal Welfare Other Editions 2.
