    Animal rights and protection organisations have become very popular. As zoos are the oldest of such organisations, I was interested in their function, contemporary perception, as well as polemics surrounding this institution. In the theoretical part of my thesis, I examine various theories of environmental ethics and the history of zoos. The methodology used in conversation with the interviewees is unstructured interview. My interlocutors deal with the issue of animal rights on a daily basis, either directly or indirectly. Analysis confirms correctness of my hypothesis, which is also substantiated in the conclusion.
