Poll: Should Wellington Zoo replace its Lions?

Wellington Zoo’s elderly lioness sisters, Djane and Zahra, have been euthanised, leaving the zoo with no lions.
Both lionesses had been closely monitored by veterinary staff over the past 18 months due to age-related health concerns, and Djane’s health recently deteriorated.
Lions have been part of Wellington Zoo community since it opened in 1906, when the Zoo was gifted a male lion called King Dick.
Wellington Zoo said it would look at starting a new pride of lions in the future, but it was likely to be awhile until a firm plan was in place.

This week we feature a picture of a starling by Louise Thomas.

"The variety of plumage at the moment on young birds as they transition into their adult feathers is amazing. I think a few years ago I would have thought of starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) as a dozen different species if I thought of them at all. Many of the new generation still have their brown heads, but are developing their star-spangled chest feathers. Mature feathers coming in on their backs are beautiful, with pale brown borders and the middles an iridescent green in the sunlight. Nature is an artist."
