You get a fifth star, when you have vegan cup cakes, please.

Zoo breeding programs produce the many baby animals that attract the public, but this leads to surplus animals. Contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of zoo breeding programs do not release individuals back into the wild. Instead, the individuals are destined to live their lives in captivity. Some are even sold to circuses, to canned hunting facilities, or for slaughter.
Need more parking place. Close down the elephant exhibit and pave it. Since 1991, more than a dozen zoos in the U.S. have closed their elephant exhibits or announced that they intend to phase them out, citing an inability to provide the animals with proper care. This progressive trend must continue. Zoos need to abandon failed breeding programs and stop pretending that elephants can thrive in captivity. Elephants should be retired to reputable, accredited sanctuaries such as The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.
MATA has cut around 30% of service in recent years, with more cuts expected in the fall of 2015.

Zoos are animal jails. Close it to the public, let the public watch the animals online and let the inhabitants die of old age.
Boycott the zoo. It's an animal prison.
