Zoo Story

Personal Work

Picture book project.
Written and illustrated by Wanqing Wu.

Life in the zoo is desperate. One day, the animals decide to escape! Will their life get better? I focus on animal welfare in the zoo. Nowadays many zoos just use animals as tools to make money, keeping them in tiny cages where the animals have nowhere to hide and make them show stereotypical behaviours. I hope my picture book can draw attention to the welfare of zoo animals and make people say no to these zoos that disregard animal welfare.
