Thanks for your post. I’m sorry to hear that this was the answer you received, though I respect your decision to continue supporting the trust. Let’s hope that they, along with zoos more generally, move away from pinioning in the years ahead. Enquiries like yours, which show that the public is aware of the practice, will no doubt help bring about change.I messaged my "local" zoo (Durrell wildlife trust), re the flamingos they have and received a suprising response saying they do practice pinioning. Whilst i agree this practice seems wrong to me i will still support the place as a whole as the good work towards conservation and critically endagered animals outweigh the bad. Not saying my view is right ,it's just my view.
