What travelers say:

The cage is really the most uncomfortable thing I have ever seen. Monkeys can only jump up and down, up and down, up and down, and repeat this over and over again in a small cage. Birds of prey also stay in small cages, with bird droppings all over their bodies, and there is only one branch to stand on, not even their wings stretched out. I hate this place, I hate it from the moment I come in. It's so frustrating. I realize that this place is mainly maintained by fundraising and donations, but this is also the research facility of a nearby university. Shouldn't they take care of it more carefully, or do some active fundraising activities to improve the living conditions and environment of these animals on display? If not, it is better to close this place. Now no one would ever want to see the injured animals imprisoned in cages, it is really out of date.
