Hello, this is Mac So, the zoo photographer.

When we hear about zoos, many people often have a negative perception, feeling that they deprive animals of their natural wild habitats and confine them within human-made structures for entertainment. I share some of these sentiments. Zoos, after all, are products of human desires and ego.

However, it's also a fact that the role and mission of modern zoos extend beyond merely satisfying human desires. Zoos also serve various purposes such as the protection of animals, ecological observation, research, environmental conservation awareness, and education.

#5 Hi

Since its renovation in March 2018, the polar bear facilities at Maruyama Zoo have attracted crowds of visitors daily. It’s always packed. Many people come to see the polar bears swimming in the pool, and I’ve visited countless times, looking forward to it as well.

#7 White & Red In Blue

However, due to the large crowds, capturing good shots wasn’t easy, and it also depended on whether the polar bears felt like swimming or not.

In such circumstances, moments where I could capture the shots I desired were rare but blissful.
