Costa Rica Is Shutting Down All Zoos And Freeing Every Animal In Captivity

Costa Rica has announced that it will be the first country in the world to shut down its zoos and free the captive animals they hold. Costa Rica is an especially biodiverse country, holding about 4% of the world's known species. Sadly, the country is contractually obligated to keep two of its zoos open for another decade. Still, after that, they plan to shut it down in favor of a cage-free habitat for the animals to live in.

Treehugger reports that the nation, which also recently banned hunting for sport, will close the last two zoos in the next 10 years and give the animals a more natural habitat in which to exist. They want to convey to the world that they respect and care for wild animals.

Environmental Minister René Castro says, “We are getting rid of the cages and reinforcing the idea of interacting with biodiversity in botanical parks in a natural way.”

We don’t want animals in captivity or enclosed in any way unless it is to rescue or save them.”

Any animals currently in captivity that would not survive in the wild will be cared for in rescue centers and wildlife sanctuaries. No new zoos will be opened.

If you have trouble waking up on time, you might need this high voltage ejector bed

This new Ejector bed doesn't have a snooze alarm. If you have plans to oversleep it will launch you straight out of bed. All while flashing lights and sounding off horns and bells.

Invented by Colin Furze, the crazy scientist who also created a set of retractable working Wolverine claws, has now come up with another invention.

When it's time for you to wake up, this bed goes into overdrive. It throws you out of bed and makes a crazy amount of noise.

As is tradition with Furze's other inventions, the majority of it was assembled by him, in his garage. An classic air-compressor powers the home-made device that throws you out of bed.

If you feel like that still won't wake you up, try setting it to MAX power mode!

You can even leave your clothes at the end of your bed for a quicker start to your morning as well!

You can watch the full video demonstration of the ejector bed in the video below:

And in this video you can watch Colin build the entire contraption!
