Zoos are so last millennium. Now they are wildlife sanctuaries, and wildlife parks.

When I was a kid, we went to Orana Park in Christchurch - you could drive your car into the lion enclosure, and the keepers would put part of a carcass on your car bonnet so the lions would jump up and growl at you through the windscreen.

Unsurprisingly, this is no longer done.

Orana Park continues though, and although it has one of the worst websites ever, it still has cool animals.

We went this morning, and got up close and personal with the giraffes.
