The Chapultepec Zoo just celebrated its 90 years of existence. This is one of the most prestigious zoos and most visited in Mexico and probably in Latin America. But sometimes looks can be deceiving.

Due to captivity, poor feeding, lack of veterinary care and spaces that do not match the natural habitat of the animals, the animals here are in terrible condition. And we can not stand and watch without doing something: managers of the Chapultepec Zoo need to react before it is too late.

The consequence of all this is that today the zoo animals have lesions, signs of malnutrition, stress, depression, diseases, including dementia this is leading to violent behavior toward themselves, with potential to reach self-mutilation.
