While her friends go out on dates, Kelly devotes her life to the zoo and likes to being there and spending time with the animals instead of living her life.

I am not for a moment suggesting that we should stop trying to protect animals' natural habitats, but if endangered species were to become extinct in the wild (which sadly seems quite likely in the near future), zoos will have preserved them for future generations, with enough genetic diversity…
