Im Londoner Zoo, übrigens dem ersten, der die Bezeichnung Zoologischer Garten führte, werden die Tiere vermessen und gewogen. Das gleiche wie den dortigen rund 16'000 Zootieren widerfährt ihren Artgenossen in 800 Zoos in fast 80 Ländern.

Die so ermittelten Daten werden in einer Datenbank abgelegt und dienen Zoologen weltweit, um an Informationen zu kommen und diese zu nützen, um bedrohte Tierarten zu schützen.

Und was meinen die Tiere zu der Aktion? Bei den einen könnte man meinen, sie geniessen die Abwechslung. Anderen scheint es schlichtweg egal zu sein. Und dann gibt es natürlich noch die, denen es gewaltig zu stinken scheint. Wie zum Beispiel dem Roten Vari namens Cid.

«Echt jetzt?»
