The city government announced last week it will transform the city's zoo into an ecological park for a limited number of species, and begin with the transfer of birds of prey to natural reserves.

 Their plan to also transform the current site into a conservation and research facility will take years while veterinarians decide which animals can be transferred to local reserves and abroad. Those who stay at the ecological park will live in what officials describe as much better conditions.

Animals by the hundreds are being set free as Buenos Aires closes its 140-year-old Palermo zoo.

Among the first to leave will be birds of prey like owls and chimangos, destined for a reserve along the shores of the Rio de la Plata south of the capital. They will be placed there in larger confines that will give them room to stretch and strengthen their winds before they're ready for the wild.

Others among the 1,500 animals at the zoo are destined for reserves in Argentina and abroad as their old home is transformed into a park.

Some animals will have to stay due to age or illness, including a lion cub with hypothyroidism, an elderly anteater and a snow leopard. They are under care by Vets.

    finally, someone with a conscious "gets" it! bravo and kudos for your kindness to these creatures who were sentenced to serve behind bars for no reason other than to "entertain" the masses.
