Photo and caption by Merima Helic

This image of an orangutan hand pressed against the glass of its cage was captured at the San Diego Zoo. To me, it represents all the emotions a zoo brings to the surface: pity at the animal's confinement, anger at the necessity of preservation, and relief that we are at least trying to save the wild.

Location: San Diego, CA
