Could this be the future of Zoos?

Unzoos are a way for visitors to view wild animals and become immersed in their natural habitat. They encourage wild animals to interact with visitors.  One of the first zoos to enter this territory is the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo in Taranna Australia (here) . This is an interesting concept to see as more and more zoos move away from cages, adopting naturalistic enclosures. This Unzoo takes it one step further moving towards an environment designed around the animals, rather than the visitors.
