Re: “Zoo Gone Wild

Thank you Sam Levin for this well-researched and thorough article and thank you East Bay Express for publishing it. I'm glad to have a better grasp of the situation and it's many sides. I have supported the retainment of Knowland as it is from the beginning of this attempt to turn the land into a themed zoo and entertainment center at the expense of an endangered species and remaining native open space. The preservation and conservation of the open native land and its endemic species for its intended public use in this heavily urban area is in my heart and mind more important, more pertinent and timely than the Zoo's proposal. Increasingly, more and more of the public want open space preserved for public enjoyment. And, while I appreciate the Zoo's business efforts to perpetuate their existence by trying to create something somewhat interesting, I just don't think what they have in mind holds up to what the public thinks is really necessary for Oakland, the Bay Area and the State, and that is, the conservation and preservation of open space for public enjoyment and the preservation and conservation of endemic species. And, I hope that the Oakland City Council will agree when it comes time for their vote. I hope that future generations will be able look about and say, what is has been here from time immemorial and we thank them for saving it for us and for having the foresight and courage to stop further development of a poor idea.
