  • Animals dont matter

    They havent contributed anything to society but humans have. Animals dont create things or build houses, so why do they matter unless animals start communicating with us then we dont know if they like living in zoos or not so stop whining we the humans are the Superior being so bow down animals

  • Really America? Really?

    It is ridiculous to claim that animals are happier in the wild. Almost all the animals in zoos are rescues that are awaiting release or animals that are common enough to make its removal from the natural environment not harmful. Also zoos sponsor capture and breeding programs, and they can also keep species alive.

  • Animals are not humans

    You do not need to be an expert to see that animals are not intellectuals. They rely on instinct to make it through their lives, while humans use our heads (Not all of us it need to though "They is bad") Humans are doing what they believe right and maintaining a population of animals in zoos for both the animals and us.

  • There Should be a Criteria

    I believe that zoos are good and bad. On the good side I believe that without zoos that many of the animals we enjoy today would not be here. Such as Pere David's deer, black-tailed ferret, and many others. First of all, to those that would argue we are the problem and we should have education to these people. That is all great but there is really not enough money to do this. Next, should animals really be kept in cages to which studies have shown that these animals have psychological fears, boredom, depression etc. NO. They should not they should have large amounts of enrichment, such as lures on zip lines for cheetahs, and lots of climbing toys for monkey. They should also give them enough room. A great example of this is the White Oak Conservation Center in Florida. Second thing, animals are rarely taken from the wild by zoos today without drawing out large amounts of controversy from not only people but the AZA and WAZA as well. This why not many animals are taken out of the wild today. So in conclusion, I believe that zoos are good when put under checks and balances but zoos that are similar to roadside zoos, well the notion should be abandoned

  • Zoos are good!

    I think that zoos are good for the animals. It is a safe, natural place for them to live. It can even help endangered species, such as the California condor, get back to a non endangered species. In conclusion, zoos are a good place for the animals to happily live.

  • Zoos are good

    Zoos allow us to research the animals. They also give animals extra housing space. The forest is being cut down so zoos are useful. The more we cut down trees the more useful zoos are. When we are in the future we will thank our selves tat we built zoos.

  • Think about it...

    Everyone's saying zoo's are bad! That their caging up animals! Not letting them live in their natural habitat! That is happening in some zoo's. Some have careless, rude people working there. Caging animals is wrong. They should have more space, not bars in front of them! Their habitat is another thing. I agree they should rome free in their natural habitat, but that would be even worse for them. Their habitat is getting destroyed...By us. I'm just saying that if all this bad stuff in the animals wasn't happening... I would say we don't need them. Not as much. But the thing is, we do.

  • Zoo's Are Terrible, and Selfish.

    True Scientist results lead that more animals die in Zoo's then in the wild because 'Humans' (Not even the Animal) Does not know how to completely care for the animals in the proper way. And plus, some of the animals don't even have enough space when in their cages the animals feel compressed and trapped. It would be impossible to make it exactly how it would be in the wild. Think, if animals are in cages do they feel free? And one more thing... Did you possibly ask? Oh wait, you can't. Humans are doing Zoos for their own benefit so even if it's 'cool' to look at the animals, do you think the animals think it's cool to be trapped? Zoo's are incredibly selfish because first of all, 3 of 4 people that work at Zoo's do it for money. Second of all, (Like I said earlier) Do you think the animals liked to be trapped. And Finally Zoo's sometimes sell the animals to either, restaurants (Food), or Other Zoo's. But listen, I am not saying animals should not leave zoo's because now they cannot go back to the wild because they would already be so used to being in the zoo that they would not know how to care for themselves any longer, but if you think about it they could continue to collect animals and then say, "Whoops! Sorry they are already in the Zoo's we cannot give the animals back to the wild... Darn." So please help me and the millions who want to protect animals, not kill them.

  • Zoos help everyone

    I think that zoos help everyone. If an animal is hert then it can help it and give it the medication that it needs to help it heel. Plus scientists can look at the animals they need to look at up close or if there is a endangered animal is in the zoo it can help the animal population.

  • Yes its okay trust me

    Yes they do need to be in cages because we have to make sure dangerous animals are kept in cages so no one can get physically hurt, if they stay in their natural habitat they can die off lack of food, predators, diseases but in zoos they have veterinarians on guard if they are in their habitat they can get hurt but in zoos most likely they would be killed because they want to take over their territory

  • They are good

    Zoos can be good for animals and humans. Some animals sent there could only be there for a short while. Zoos take in animals that were injured, make them good again and send them back after a few months. Though i feel bad i think they are okay, end. Bye

  • Of coarse zoos aren't the best thing in the world but they keep animals safe.

    Zoos are good! They keep animals safe! They give animals a shelter. They give them food. Very rarely kill animals or take them from their families on purpose. Im not a scientist but i can say that I LOVE ZOO'S!!!!! La la la la la la la la la la

  • I like zoos

    I think zoos are good because they save endangered animals from getting hurt or sick.They are also good because of education for adults and kids.People like zoos mostly because of the animals you get to see.Some people think zoos are bad because they have tiny cages but acutely they don't have cages they have big enclosures so change your opinion say zoos are good because they are!!!😌

  • Hospitality will be needed.

    Although captivity is keeping animals in actually a pretty big area is somewhat cruel, this also means that when they are injured or ill we can treat them but if they were in the wild, in a matter of days or even hours, the animals would be dead. Oh dear.

  • Zoos benefit the animals species

    Imagine a world without wild animals. No biodiversity. No variation.
    Zoos have been very popular attractions since Victorian times when they were places of curiosity where explorers could show off their treasures from across the British Empire. They housed collections of creatures and little thought was given to animal welfare. However over time, and with the recognition of the decline in wildlife, zoos have changed and have become more focused on conservation and education but are zoos an ethical part of the modern world? Do they benefit the species they contain or are they just there as an attraction to make money?
    It is not an overstatement to say that countless species are becoming extinct. It is estimated that there are more than one hundred million animal species and at least 10,000 species are becoming extinct every year. An additional concern is that some species are becoming extinct quite suddenly because of subtle changes in the environment. 5.7 million bats have died in the USA since 2007 due to white nose syndrome. Zoos help prevent this rapid extinction by acting as a reservoir for the species; the animals can be bred and will live long lives without threats from many diseases or predators. Without these zoological efforts the world would be far less biodiverse and whilst reintroduction success is rare, zoos are helping us gain knowledge of how this complicated procedure can be carried out and how we can help to protect an animals’ natural habitat.
    Zoos and wildlife parks provide the general public with an opportunity to see great animals close up. An enterprising zoo can provide a paying visitor with not only a great spectacle but also a greater understanding of the problems faced by wild animals. Behind the scenes there are teams of zookeepers, zoologists, vets and animal curators involved in developing our understanding of many magnificent and rare animals. These progressive zoos will frequently share their skills and knowledge with zoos around the world and help other institutions to improve their animals’ living conditions. They can also help with programmes to assist the reintroduction of animals into the wild. One example of this is the Zoological Society of London’s “EDGE” scheme which helps to educate future conservation workers in countries such as Mongolia and Haiti and to set up conservation efforts for poorly known, evolutionary distinct species.
    Overall, with the global threats to the environment and with increased urbanisation and deforestation, it is clear to see that progressive zoos are essential for the long-term, continuing survival of various threatened species. However I believe a more thorough set of regulations and inspections must be put into place in order to ensure the animals welfare and the zoos progression.

  • Zoos are a good idea!

    This teaches children from a young age about the different animals that may not be in our country and teaches children how to keep animals in a safer environment for the future generations so they know and they have a bit of information about the worlds animals. Also this keeps animals away from the threat of predators and keep them safe during hibernation.

  • Zoo's help the hurting

    Zoos help because if the animal is hurt or endangered the zoo helps the species be feeding it and protecting it. Also letting it breed so the animal is not going extinct. Zoo's help the wildlife in many ways. Zoo's can make a lot happen just by doing a little to help it survive.

  • Yea its a good idea

    Because zoos help us see the animals/wild animals that we don't see every day outside, but once you go into a zoo its like your in a jungle with all these animals. When you walk outside do you see a wild animal, polar bear bear tiger noooooo you have ti go to the zoo to see those wild animals.

  • Zoos are great the zoo keepers treat all the animals with respect

    Zoos are great in one YouTube video I saw, a monkey was very excited to watch a magic trick, I feel that it is good for the animals and we should take in consideration that not all animals are the nice kind but that doesn't mean zoos are bad for the animal.

  • Zoos are good people really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Animals are happier in zoos than in the wild. They don’t have to worry about predators or finding food. Many animals in zoos are animal rescues that are only being held until they get better. Zoos also protect endangered species from extinction. Zoos save many animals that are injured. There are a few bad zoos. But there are always bad people that can make nearly everything seem bad.

  • Zoos are not good

    Because they they they they they they they are are are are are are are are are are are are are are not not not not not not not not not not not not not not not not not not good good good good good good good good good good

  • Zoos are good

    They are good because they take endangered animals from the wild, and put them in the zoo. They breed them there and increase their population. In some zoos, the cages or domains are like their habitat. Zoo keepers are good to the animals and feed them well. The endangered animals don't need to hunt or risk being killed. That's why I think zoos are good.

  • Its good for the soul

    They are amazing
    I like tigers lllllllllllll llllll l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l love them alot

  • Zoos are OK

    I think zoos are great, if there were no zoos many people would never see these amazing Animals also many zoos have breeding and rehabilitation programs for endangered species. Although
    a large number of zoos use cruel and aggressive techniques such as phajaan, also many zoos have extremely poor living conditions.

  • Yes zoos should stay open

    Zoos should stay open because the animals there are not in danger they are safe because they are in the cage. If the zoos stay open people will still have their jobs. But if zoos stay open then the animals will stay safe and hunters will not be trying to kill that animal for the fur and then the rest will be trash

  • Yes zoos should stay

    Zoos should stay open because people who work at the zoo will lose their jobs also the animals at the the zoo could be endanger . The animals at the zoo will be safe in the zoo because the preditor is not in tha cage and the animals is safe

  • Have You Seen Their ACTUAL Living Environment?

    TIP: Just search up on Google, Cruelty of Zoos and put Images

    EYE OPENER
    Its just terrible how zoos steal everything they had to enclose them in a small cage for the entertainment of people. Behind those bars are animals with empty eyes and tortured souls. Think about how they feel :(

  • Animals are food

    Animals are food and should be killed for the human spices to stay alive we take there homes and land. If you release them into the wild or if they stay, another predator will get a good meal and not starving kids in other country's. We can solve world hunger if we are allowed to kill and eat endangered animals.

  • THink of the animals.

    The sweet little pandas that would be released in the wild that would die otherwise. This is an outrage. You cant release them in the wild and expect them to live on their own. They need people. I will leave you with this statement. THINK OF THE ANIMALS. The End.

  • Zoos do not always help the animals.

    Every year in the USA over 25 million animals are used in biological experiments.
    No matter how big some zoos try to make the enclosures but the enclosures do not resemble the animals natural habitat enough.
    Zoo animals can scare young kids.
    Zoos are bad and costly so do not go there enlist willing to help save the animals.

  • Breeding endangered animals

    Arabian Oryxes used to be EW (Extinct in the wild). Now, thanks to the Phoenix Zoo, there are 6,000 (I'm not kidding, 6,000) Arabian Oryxes in the wild. California Condors were critically endangered but now, thanks to the San Diego Zoo, there are about 160 birds flourishing. Don't discriminate zoos or zoo haters. It's your opinion and it matters.

  • They can be good... If done right

    Many zoos used to be a bad place for animals, but I believe that they can be a good place for animals. For example, I think that most of the animals at the Saint Lois Zoo are content with their lives. If people know how to keep them happy and healthy, they are a good place. I only wish all of them were good.

  • I think zoos are good

    I think zoos are good because they are fed and care for. Also zoos take in animals that no longer have a home. Also zoos help endangered animals with breeding programs that help increase their number. These are all the reasons why zoos are really good. These are my opinion.

  • I think some goods are good.

    I think that zoos are mostly good because, the zoo keepers try and make the habitats as real as possible. The zoos also take animals in that are about to be extinct and reproduce them so they don't become extinct. The zoo in Phoenix, Arizona has HUGE animal enclosures and the animals always seem super happy. There is also more than one animal in each enclosures.

  • Endangered Animals and Injured Animals in need of help

    Most zoos are not only great places to get up close to wildlife, but many are also doing their part to bolster dwindling populations of animals still living free in the wild. Not only having them live in an environment that's like them living in the wild they could also protect them from people killing them and making the animals go extinct.

  • Zoos are good they save animals from going extent except for bugs I think

    So many animals would be gone by now like the white tiger . All animal should be free but zoos are good so many people learn from them even if they are scary so when you visit the zoo make sure to tip and have a fun time there now by .

  • Cause anmial are good to people and peopel said it bad but it is not bad.

    I like zoos because is vervy good and kids like zooz and i do to me ang my hole familey go and play with the animal but not like that ok but the only thing that cool about the zoo is that they could do col tricks and you sould go to the zoo sometimes.

  • One youtube video I watched was a gorilla slamming the glass and all the people laughing and pointing.

    They is bad I think a zoo has its good side which is saving species from extinction.It was just sad how we dominate and confine a species so close to himan because we can and because we can make a buck. Zoos prevent animals from being in the wild. We use animals for our own good, but i guess it's not really good. Animals are beautiful creatures and we don't want to take way there beauty.

  • Zoos are a bad place.

    Zoos are a bad place for many reasons and good for many reasons.The reason they are bad is animals are kept captive for many years even their lifetime before getting released into the wild.Animals get bored and not able to do things when they are held captive for lots of time even some get sick of boredom maybe even die.When babies are born they are not with their mothers they are taken away from each other and sold to other zoos then being with their mothers ,brothers and, sisters.Although they help with extinction they have nothing to do while they are in their cages or houses.When animals are in their cages they are being teased buy kids and adults with food and pounding on the glass.Animals deserve to be in the wild where they were born and meant to be with others and deadly things of the wild and the leader of the packs

    Zoos are good because they help animals in need and hurt. Even though they put animals in a cage doesn't mean the animals are in danger.

    We have had zoos for many centuries now. Zoos have brought us happiness and education. Zoos have helped animals that are endangered,injured,or can't survive on there own because of climate change or people destroying habitats for buildings,companies etc. Many people love zoos because you can see animals that you can't see normally where you live. Zoos can protect animals from predators or poachers/hunters.Many animals are born in zoos and can't survive out in the wild because of there instinct of being fed and pampered.Besides the zoos own the animals just like we own our pets so think if you want them to let there animals go maybe you should let your pets go. We have had zoos for many centuries and now all of a sudden it's a problem now.

  • Zoos are good

    The reason why I think that zoos are good is because it will give people time to admire the animals that are located in only other countries. Well I mean sure they may be trapped in a cage, but if they have a cage that is like there home they should be alright. Oh yeah, give them a mate

  • Zoos can save many endangered species

    There is such a thing called SSP, Species survival program, which manages the breeding of specific endangered species to maintain certain population. SSP is also used as a research tools in order to understand wildlife biology and population dynamics, and to raise awareness and funds to support field protection for specific species in many zoos around the world. Zoos can also educate growing children. It gives important information and facts that student have to learn. However, we have to notice that not all the animals in the zoos are treated perfectly. There are some mistreats going on in many zoos. But, still it gives more positive influence than negative influence to the world.

  • Zoos support conservation efforts!

    Although it is true that some zoos contain wild animals in refined area and are considered unethical, it is inevitable to take the risk for a better future. First of all, it is wrong to say that zoos are “mistreating” or “harming” the animals residing there; zoos actually provide safe habitat, unlimited food source, and protect them from parasites, diseases, droughts, injuries, etc. Zoos do confine the wild animals in a small area, but also provide them with appropriate protection and care that would not be provided in wild habitats. Moreover, zoos provide possible solution to mass extinction that we are facing now; captive breeding programs and reintroduction programs help recovering and preserving biodiversity. Zoos also allow scientists and specialists to research different species to find a better solution to help them survive; researches conducted with zoo animals can help save more animals from different species. Most importantly, zoos educate adults and children about the importance of biodiversity. Public awareness can help mitigate the fundamental causes of mass extinction and other anthropogenic impacts.

  • Zoos support conservation efforts!

  • Yes of course

    Not trying to be mean but at lest it's not bad as the circus.
    And to the people that never seen a bear you can see one at the zoo.
    And the sick ones can't heal them selfs in the wild or can they?
    There are like little home for them in the zoo

  • Animals have good home. They are safe. They have food.

  • Zoos are trying to save animals

    Phoenix Zoo save the scimitar oryx. It was extinct in the wild, but thanks to the zoo, now more than 6,000 oryxes are roaming the world. The San Diego Zoo save the California Condor. In 2014, the population of California Condors was 421. Zoos are taking actions to try to save endangered, critically endangered, and extinct in the wild animals.

  • They save animals

    Zoos save animals that might be dying in the wild. Also some animals will live better in zoos instead of the wild because they won't be hunted and poached for their skin and fur. Most animals will also be with other animals of their kind which might help if they don't like humans.

  • Their There for a Reason

    Zoos are fine there main reason for opening is to ruduce extintion and teach. I think that animal captivity is bad when you dont need to do it. It dosent matter what animal you put where they wont be happy in a zoo A Scanturay or the wild ( its not like they can go back they would die) but still you cant say you dont go to the zoo and not enjoy it even if you don't like the fact that there caged and most of the time the animals look happy with all of the attention people give them, and the zoo keepers make connections with animals to show them that humans are not bad even if they have been taken from the wild. Most animals from zoos arnt taken from the wild there where sick know there better so there going to stay in the zoo so THEY WONT DIE, or there born in captivity and cant be placed in the wild because once again THEY WOULD DIE because there parent don't know how to survie in the wild, and i think it would be worse to seprate the animals baby from them then have them in cages. Zoos are also better than scantuarys because A. There goverment run and give back to the public and B. The animals have better care than at a scantuar. The wild is the best place for a animal but zoos are there for a reason and there not going to shut down and let all of the animals die because they cant just let them back into the wild.
    (please excuse my spelling i'm not very good at it)

  • I like zoos because they protect animals.

    Zoos are a great place for animals to live and breed. Zoos feed, protect, and care for wild and endangered animals. Zoos let animals go when fully healed. Zoos help teach kids about animals that they might never seen or heard of before. Zoos are a great place for people and animals.

  • Zoos save animals

    I think as long as zoos have entertainment for animals and have enclosures big enough they help. They help endangered species repopulate, and if the animals that were born in captivity would have trouble hunting for themselves. Therefore i believe that zoos are helpful as long as they get routine inspections.

  • They are good.

    Well........ Zoos can be bad for animals, but also good. They can save endangered animals and feed them well. It's the bad zoos that lock up the animals in bad places. But, in regular, good-quality zoos, they have lots of room to roam and play. So, that is why zoos are good.

  • Zoos are good

    Zoos are good because they teach people about how the animals live in the wild and how they catch there food. They also tell what the animal does to survive and how they make there home in the wild. That is only some of the reasons zoos are good and why we need them.

  • Zoos are good for animals

    Zoos are good for animals because they take care of animals . They save many endangered animals . They can even help endangered animals such as Blue billed curassow and California conder, get back to non- endangered species . Zoos take those animals in any provide them with a safe place to live

  • Zoos are good

    Formal zoo education comprises education that is conducted in the framework of the educational curriculum of schools, colleges, etc. within or in relationship with the zoo or aquarium. Most zoos and aquariums are regularly visited by numerous classes from kindergarten up to university level. These classes receive structured educational tours and lessons focusing around selected themes as part of their formal teaching program at the zoo or aquarium. Many zoos and aquariums have developed professional programs and facilities for this type of zoo education. Zoos and aquariums reach millions of people all over the world, most of them living in urban areas and having little or no contact with nature. They come to the zoo or aquarium because they have an interest in animals. Consequently, living animals form the basis for education in zoos and aquariums, however important the manner of exhibition and the addition of other collection components – such as plants and non-living materials – may be.

  • Zoos rebuild animal populations

    Zoos take in orphaned, injured and abandoned animals. The Bronx zoo took in a snow leopard cub named Leo after he was found by a herder in Pakistan. In addition to Leo, two bear cubs were taken into a zoo after their mother was killed by authorities when mama bear killed and fed on a hiker in Yellowstone national park. Then there was another time when Wellington Zoo took in an injured Olive Ripley sea turtle, and Olive Ripley sea turtles are endangered. Also, zoos breed animals to increase their species.

  • Animals in zoos is wrong!

    Zoos aren't suitable for animals. They are sad in zoos. There is not enough space in the zoos they live in. Many of these animals were born in captivity but how does that make it a healthier environment for them? People would argue that animals often suffer physically and mentally in captivity.

  • Some zoos are good

    Not all zoos lock up animals, some rehabilitate animals from the wild where they return them to where they belong, and only keep them if the animal would have no chance at surviving in the wild. The only time they can be bad is if they don't return them to the wild after rehabilitation and lock them in cages, or, in some cases import them and lock them in cages with concrete floors and iron bars.

  • Zoos are not evil.

    First of all, the whale crying videos are fake. Whales have no tear ducts, and the noises that they make are natural and are made as like calls for the other whales and are used for echolocation. Then, animals that are taken from their habitat will have no experience from the wild. If they are released, they will die and the people who have moved them should be shameful. Finally, the people that run the zoos will go out of business and become jobless. Now these "protectors" will have killed all the animals and ruined the lives of all the people that had no bad intention.

  • Zoos help Everything/ one

    Finally, zoos are a great part of our country because they can keep animal populations secure. There are so many organisms becoming extinct these days. Sometimes we barely even notice. When zoos come and take a herd of endangered species, they can control breeding and have the population rise back up. In the video “Phoenix Zoo Helps Save Endangered Species” they say that they only had to take in nine animals in a species to repopulate. In the past 45 years, there has been 239 births at the Phoenix Zoo. And that’s just at one zoo in one state in one country. There are thousands of zoos across the globe. Also, if there are too many animals in one area, they can take some to zoos so other animals have more space. It is like splitting up grades into smaller classes. So everyone can have more room. Conditions can get bad if there are too many animals in one wild life area. “ The Swazi Eleven” article talks about how some animals were knocking down trees because they didn’t have enough space. Once they took some of those animals to a zoo, They all had more space. Being smushed is definitely not good for animals.

  • Zoos are life savers!

    Zoos help animals stay safe .Because along in the wild is not safe for an animal to be in. Because another animal can kill it but when they are in the zoo nothing will happen to them.Plus many people want to see animals and when they are in the wild its hard for them to find any but having zoos are around they can visit the animals whenever they want.

  • They Need To Learn In The Wild!

    If they don't get use to the wild because One YouTube video I watched was a gorilla slamming the glass and all the people laughing and pointing. For whatever reason it struck me and I wished that gorilla had broken the glass and attacked those people. It was just sad how we dominate and confine a species so close to human because we can and because we can make a buck. It wasn't funny at all!

  • Yes zoos are

    I think zoos are good because we can see interesting animals that you cant see everyday, and you get to spend time with you family and friends. Zoos are showing animals that are from the wild and sometimes you can ride a camel, and that is why i think zoos are good

    Animals need freedom and to do things for themselves.They also want to be with there family but zoos dont let them be with there family.And the space in there.And they dont like being in cages.These are some of the resons why animals should not be in zoos.Ps animals can escape and scare people away.

  • Zoo are good

    Zoos do good! Zoos save many endangered animals that would not have survived in the wild. People say that putting them in a cages is bad, but zoos do not put them in cage. They are in large enclosures that provide them with enough space to do most of what they could do in the wild. Also, farms, industrial businesses, and even human habitats tear apart the habitat of many animals. Zoos take those animals in and provide them with a safe place to live. I could go on forever on why zoos are good, but those are some points that stick out to me.

    Animals are benefited at the zoo because they take animal are taking in the zoo because there hurt and when there hurt they do not relies that they are being help because they need more help then they relies.And some times they need food to live but they cant find any.That why zoos are beneficil.

  • Zoo's are safe!

    Zoos help animals and they can save all the endangered species. The animals don't have to worry about predators or hunting, the could just look at the zoo visitors or sleep. Lions are going extinct, and they really need help. Zoos are going to solve this problem. Zoos are helpful.

  • Zoos do matter

    About 21% of mammal species in the world are threatened by extinction, 12% of bird species, and reptile species. Zoos are helping this position to help.
    Zoos deal with a lot of animals ranging from one cell organisms to large animals like elephants. They research the behavior of the animals, the reproductive biology, nutrition, animal health and genetics. This helps scientists study these animals.
    In zoos, many people can connect with wildlife, people need to get used to seeing animals, so this helps people connect to nature and animals.

  • Zoos are very bad

    Animals live longer in the wild because in zoos they don't treat the animals like the animals are used to. I think that zoos should be banned or illegal because of these reasons. Zoos are cruel! Zoos are cruel! Zoos are cruel! Zoos are cruel! Zoos are cruel! Zoos are cruel!

  • Because zoos Don't take care of them

    They can go day's without food because there to lazy to feed them and they are taped in little tiny space's so they run up and down and crack there because they are depressed and they don't want to live anymore. If they treat animals the way they do it is not good to have the animals in the zoo.

  • My opinion is that yes zoo's are helpful because they help animals and they care for them.

    They wash them and they take care of them if they are ill and if they have a broken arm of leg they can heal them by helping them walk and stuff and they love them and they always take care of them and they feed them and they clean the cages for the animals.

  • My opinion is that they are helpful by helping the animals not hurting them selves and from becoming gone

    Because they help animals and they care for them and sometime they help them go back to the wild and they give vet days so they can be healthy and they love them they also wash them and they take care of them and help them if they have a broken leg or arm and they do a lot of stuff and they care a lot about all the animals.

  • I think that zoo's are good because it helps the animals from destroying the wild and from hunters from trying to kill them.

    Because in the wild they will start to destroy the environment because they make a big mess and the make the wild messed up. And the hunters can not kill the animals because they are in the zoo and they are protected from the hunters and the are safe and sound in the zoo were no one can kill them.

  • I think zoos are good

    Because they help prevent animals from being extinct ,and anytime when they are ill they can be healed faster by them being watched and cared for in the zoos.Second they are protected by the zookeepers and they won't be killed and eaten by their predators.Third they won't starve and find food.

  • I think zoo's are good

    Because in the wild they will start to destroy the enviorment because they tear it up and that when the are in the zoo's they are being well taken care of and when they are sick they have their own vet and that they can entertain us and also that they have a protect the animals community.

    I say this because people won't harm and kill them and won't send them to deft and won't cause captivity and animals will stay healthy and they can stay alive for the animals and for are sake.Also people need animals if they're won't be animal we won't be on land.

  • We need zoos!!!

    I disagree with this because the zoos try hard to make the animals feel like there in their natural habitat, by not using fencing and using glass, they make their habitats as big as possible and they try to keep them doing their regular routines. If animals are born in captivity the zoos try to make them adapt to what would be their natural habitat. The zoos get animal’s health insurance to help them survive diseases that could kill them. They feed the animals the same food they would hunt, or eat in the wild. The animal’s habitat has to be a certain size or it is not legal to have the zoo open. For example two monkeys would have a habitat ten metres by 10 metres
    And also, zoos are like hospitals for animals who cant survive in the wilderness. Fact: Animals live LONGER in captivity. Humans are not in the jungle to be a vet. But in zoos, people can help the animals. As you can see, banning zoos would be a horrible idea for the world

  • Zoo's are good

    I think zoos are good because they protect the animals from hunters and the animals won't have to struggle to find food and they won't fight over food. It is ridiculous to claim that animals are happier in the wild. Almost all the animals in zoos are rescues that are awaiting release or animals that are common enough to make its removal from the natural environment not harmful. Also zoos sponsor capture and breeding programs, and they can also keep species alive.

  • Conservation, Education, and Research are what zoos are all about!

    Zoos have animals so we can understand them more. They have species protection programs, they help with conservation, and they educate the public on animals. Some animals, such as the New Guinea Singing Dog, are extinct in the wild and only are alive in zoos now. Although you should research a zoo before you go, most zoos take great care of there animals and have professional stuff that go through extensive training to work with the animals safely. Without zoos, and with the world in the state that it's in, more animals would be extinct and/or critically endangered.

  • They provide a place where people can see animals.

    People don't have the money to go and see these animals in different places and kids can experience something they might love doing like for example ,me and my friends want to help protect shelter and study different animals , I also be a archaeologist .Kids also want to see animals in real life not in some book .

  • Zoos are good

    Zoos are good because they keep animals well fed and keep them sheltered from storms and other animals, so that they don't become extinct. Zoos are good place for unique animals they can be used for kids that have problems and can't really do things with other people in their life time.

    Zoos are good for animals because they help animals from becoming extinct and so if animal get fed to other animals it is natural cause thats why so yes zoo s are good for animals.Also zoo s take very good care for animals and make them live a happy life.

  • Zoos are good!

    Animals are bred in zoos and the people there are trained enough to look after animals properly. Yes we do understand the fact about the ecosystem but zoos are a good thing in general. It gives people education and a chance to see animals they haven't seen before aswell as that

  • Yes zoos are good.

    Studies from debate.Org have shown that zoos are places that families can go and see animals that normally they wouldn’t see in real life. It also teaches kids to love the animals and try to protect them from extinction. Say they saw penguins at the zoo, well I don’t think they would have a family trip to Antarctica just to see penguins. Where if they went to the zoo they could see multiple animals safely not just penguins without even leaving their county.

  • Zoos are awesome

    I have been to london zoo the animals were all well treated and didn't seem unhappy or sad they seemed content with there life i think its because they don't know what they are missing. So i think zoos are a really good thing that is a important part of society

  • Zoos are good!

    If an animal is in the wild,it might get chased every day or even killed. If their in a zoo,this can't happen. Also,zoos offer a ticket to being happy and being cared as. If zoos close down,the whole food chain could go on strike. For example, if a type of bird dies,the predators of the bird die,and then the predator of the animal who eats the bird dies,and so on and so on. Zoos make sure this doesn't happen by protecting the bird so the food chain doesn't go on strike. I think zoos are good because they offer shelter and are not cruel to animals.

  • Zoo gets my VOTE............

    We are doing this paper and their are some zoos that aren't qualified as a good zoo but most of the zoos actually make the exhibits real life, did you know most the endangered species are kept alive in zoos? Also they don't hurt animals there people that say they do but they never do. In many zoos the zebra, lions, tigers, and etc. fences have been replaced with open fields guard so no animals get lose. Many of the animals also have poachers and prey after them and without zoos we wouldn't probably lost all of the animals with tusk, did you also know that the zoos has guards protecting the wild animals, without them we would have poachers everywhere, also animals born with a defect have been saved. ;)

  • You people are ridiculous

    To claim the zoos keep animals in cages is to claim that the government is doing the same thing to you, although after reading some of your arguments I've no doubt that some of you believe this as well. All licensed zoos provide better environments for animals than the wild ever could. Animals have protection from potential predators, they don't have to worry about finding enough food to survive, things like that. You claim zoos don't provide enough space for animals? Nonsense. Anyone who knows anything about animal behavior and zoology would and will know that animals are perfectly content without having thousands of miles of space to roam about. Animals are primal beings, and weak minded individuals have romanticized them to be more than they are. Animals are happy as long as their basic needs are met: Food, water, shelter, sufficient space, social interaction (Species dependent). Of course, there are some exceptions, such as roadside zoos usually unequipped to deal with animals they keep to attract guests, such as tigers. No logical person would condone this. However, when you people argue that all zoos, everywhere, are bad for animals, it's just laughable. I suggest you people go study basic animal behavior, zoology, biology etc. and then reassess your stance.

  • Zoos help bring animals out of extinction.

    21% of mammals, 12% of birds, and 33% of amphibians across the world are in danger of extinction. Many zoos around the world have animal conservation programs and breed animals to be released back into the wild to repopulate their species. These programs have saved several species worldwide including the black-footed ferret. This animal went from a mere 18 to over 700 thriving animals.

  • Zoos are good!!!

    Although some zoos are bad, a lot of them are good. Good zoos take care of and reproduce endangered species to help them thrive. They also release them when they are ready to go back to the wild- if not, they are kept in a safe, open environment with good care.

    Not only does this help the animals that came to and left the zoo, but also the ecosystem the animal fits into. If just one species in an ecosystem falls apart, then the entire ecosystem could be destroyed.

    They benefit these animals, plus us. Although we have many nature documents, they must not be as interesting as seeing the actual animal in real life. Zoos promote learning.

  • Zoos are good

    Zoos are our way of helping species that we have destroyed. In zoos we care for them and rebreed them. Then we show them how to hive in there natural habitat and let them go. Now yes not all animals in zoos are endangered but the others are there to educate us and are looked after well.

  • Zoos are protective

    Zoos provide food and shelter for animals. That means they cannot die by humans. If they live in the wild, then they can be hunted down by hunters. In the zoo, however, they are protected. It also can give people education on animals and their behavior. People can't just go in the wild and look at them. It's too dangerous.

  • Zoos aren't as bad as many people portray them to be.

    There are a large number of people here claiming that, for example, 'zoos are evil', 'zoos are hell', etc. That, in my opinion, is just plain ignorance. The vast majority of zoos care and nurture the animals in an ethical and humane environment. The majority of animals also can't be set free because it's very likely that they were born into captivity initially so would have no understanding of the wild. They are domesticated in a sense. There are also many regulations in place to prevent the mistreatment of animals in zoos. So, overall, zoos are incredibly safe places for an animal to be in.

  • A zoo is a safe and good enviroment for animals!

    •Firstly Zoos keep animals safe from Animal poachers---and by bringing people and animals together, zoos have the potential to educate the public about conservation issues and inspire people to protect animals and their habitat. It is a safe, natural place for them to live. It can even help endangered species, such as the California condor, get back to a non endangered species.

  • Zoos Are Good

    Zoos do good! Zoos save many endangered animals that would not have survived in the wild. People say that putting them in a cages is bad, but zoos do not put them in cage. They are in large enclosures that provide them with enough space to do most of what they could do in the wild. Also, farms, industrial businesses, and even human habitats tear apart the habitat of many animals. Zoos take those animals in and provide them with a safe place to live. I could go on forever on why zoos are good, but those are some points that stick out to me.

  • Zoos can be good!

    People who say that zoos are all bad are wrong. Sure, they COULD treat them better than SOME zoos treat their animals, and I TOTALLY get how animals suffer from being in an enclosed area, but zoos can SAVE THE LIVES of endangered animals, repopulate their species, and set them free. Zoos CAN be good, but they need the chance to be good

  • Zoos are like pet owners

    Think of the zoo as if it were a pet owner and the zoo was a pet. Pets live under most of the same conditions as the animals in the zoos so I don't understand what is wrong with keeping animals in zoos. If you think that keeping animals in zoos is wrong then you must not agree with keeping pets in households. Pet owners give their pets lots of affection and I'm sure many zookeepers do the same for their pets. And did u know that more than 65% of all Canadians have pets in their household? And I know you are probably thinking that pets must be allowed to do whatever they want but zoo animals cannot , but you're wrong. I'm sure that most, if not all, pet owners keep their pets in cages when needed. So if u look at all sides Zoo animals are actually treated very well.

  • Zoos are great

    They save animals from places thats caring. I think zoos are good like London zoos amazing and chessington zoo. They also give animals more of a chance of living and they a save from other animals that could eat them and most zoos are very good and the animal are happy

  • Think BIg People

    AN endangered animal. ONly two left. Many prededtors. Zooz help breed them so they can thrive. If they leave them out they can die out. If you could save animal, would you? Even if you had to take it in to your own house and feed it and care for it? Well thats a zoo.

  • Zoos are not bad

    Zoos are not bad. In fact they have great qualities for the animals, and humans alike. I believe that zoos have a bad reputation. That they are cages for captured animals, or that they lonely prisons. I will explain why this reputation should be diminished.

    Zoos are often seen as cruel and terrible places for animals to live. They are commonly associated with animal abuse, and mistreatment. While humans do mistreat animals and abuse their privilege of working with magnificent animals. This is not the case for most zoos. In fact, they help animals by giving them a good life. They do this by giving appropriate feeding habits and maintaining a natural balance. This is done by simulating the animal's natural environment. Proper care of the animal is also a big deal. If an animal becomes sick, all the help that can be offered to the animal is given. Often cases of zoos providing help is giving disabled or ‘cast out” animals a home. Or by nurturing young animals who have lost their mother or father. Until the animal is able to function by itself effectively it will remain in the care of the zoo. Modern day zoos are rewriting their names by helping animals in need.

    Zoos help animals, but a lot of helping goes to humans too. Understanding is knowing for humans. When humans are taught about animals, whereas they would be ignorant to the beautiful wildlife on earth, a new way of thinking is established. This teaches caring, and sparks interest in wildlife. Bringing wildlife that would once be unknown to most people, to large populations is a great way to teach about life on earth. When you go to a zoo, you can take away information on animals, life, proper care of animals, and a new understanding of the amazing animals that surround us all.

    Along with helping humans, zoos also spread awareness. Many conservation efforts are always going on to help endangered animal species. While zoos act as a refuge for endangered animals. They spread awareness on the animals that are in the zoo. Habitats are being destroyed due to pollution, construction, human error, and natural disasters. Zoos teach what we can do differently to inform us all about how we can help animals.
    Zoos are a positive way to introduce the beauty of the world to those who can not see it. Animals are important for all life on earth, we all rely on each other. Animals, humans and the earth altogether. Zoos bring a sanctuary to those animals in need. They give information to the public about awareness. They help animals recover from illness and disability. Zoos nurture the babies of a dead mother. Now I ask you, do you think zoos are bad?

  • Yes yes yes

    Zoos are good because people need to see animals to better educate the brain's knowledge of the subject of matter in this debate. Animals get taken care of and endangered animals wont die off as fast. Or not die at all. The animals also dont have to hunt for food.

  • Zoo should close.

    I think animals should be free and live there life . People can protect them by stopping hunter from killing them.People should care for them but not keep animals in zoos. Animals might get to stess out and died.Zoos should close down zoos but still watch them. So let the animals go.

  • ZOOs are really good places.

    First of all, zoos provide animals as much food and water that they want/need Even though animals get an artificial environment, they still get a big place to stay. Animal has decreasing numbers because they are left out in the wild with very little food and water. In the wild, there are tons of prey lurking...Waiting to attack that animal at anytime. Zoos make sure that those animals are not being hunted down. Animals also get free health care from vets/doctors to help them maintain great health and a longer life.

  • Protect Endangered Animals

    Animals are beautiful creatures and people are interested in them. Another reason is that many animals are going extinct in the wild because of selfish, zero-hearted people. When animals are in zoos, some of those animals can be repopulated so the next generation and the generation after that can know about those animals themselves.

  • Do more good than harm

    Zoos typically take in animals that can no longer live on their own out in the wild. They take in animals that have been rescued from circuses or have been injured. They don't take animals from the wild anymore. Zoos also help try to stop animals from going into extinction or being considered for the endangered list. They try to breed animals that are going extinct out in the wild. Yes, I admit that some zoos aren't in the best condition but these animals wouldn't be able to survive in the wild. If they dropped off those animals off into the wild, they wouldn't survive. So zoos give them a home. Zoos do so much for animals. There is a huge difference between actual zoos and Seaworld and "roadside zoos".

  • Zoos are not very good

    I do not see why you people think zoos are good for animals. Yes they are fed, and token care of, but seriously? YOU THINK ITS GOOD FOR ANIMALS TO BE TAKEN AWAY FROM THEIR HOME?! Do animals ever return to their homes again and LIVE for longer than a few days? Its basicly ANIMAL PRISON!!!!!

  • Zoos are getting better every day and most people just don't see the benefits zoos have on animals

    The reasons we have zoos is for conservation, reproduction, education research and recreation.Most animals aren't just taken from the wild but from breeding programs it helps rebuild population gives homes to abandoned animals and gives scientist a opportunity to conduct research these animals are made sure that they are happy they are given fun activities , this is why i believe that zoos are a pros and help make a better world and help benefit

  • Zoos create opportunity

    Although zoos started off as a sole purpose for entertainment, They have evolved to something much better over the years. Zoos don't "cage" animals but they create a wholesome environment for the animal. Making sure the habitat is exactly the same and even better than where the animal had came from. Animals were not just pick in choose from the wild, they were RESCUED. Rescued from being harmed or going to full extinction.

  • Zoos are feasty feasty

    They save animals, they rescue them. It is great in life that people care so much. I truly believe that zoos are for the best. Think about it would you rather have a baby lion starve in the jungle or live happily in the zoo. I know my choice, do you?

  • No they are not good!

    I do not think zoo's are good for animals because animals should live freely. There is a thing called zoocosis and it makes the animals pace back and forth, and also make them make holes in there skin. There are also in closed spaces at zoo's and they need more space, and there is a zoo that painted a donkey to make it look like a zebra.

  • Good zoos benefit animals

    Zoos pretty much exist in this modern day to protect and help endangered species repopulate. Zoos SAVE animals every day.
    Animals come to zoos as a result of:
    > Being born in captivity
    > Getting injured in the wild, and brought to zoos so they can have a healthy life in captivity
    > Being rescued from Black Market dealers, Private collectors and those who are illegally keeping animals or decide they can no longer keep them properly.
    > Are in a breeding problem to increase their numbers because otherwise they would go extinct in the wild

    Many of the animals in zoos would become extinct otherwise such as Tigers, Amur Leopards, Blue-eyed black lemurs, Ploughshare Tortoises and Scimitar-Horned Onyxs.
    Furthermore, and good zoo would give the animals enough space, enough food and care and things to keep them occupied, such as Busch Gardens in Florida, which allows the tigers living there to exercise and keep mentally active.

    So, before you start bashing zoos for being cruel to animals, why don't you go to a zoo, or do some research and maybe acknowledge that half of the species you take for granted would be extinct without them.

  • Yes, zoos are good!!!!

    We all know that there are some bad zoos and wild life sanctuaries that treat their animals poorly but, zoos are a good thing. Zoos save endangered species by bringing them into a safe environment, where they are protected from poachers, habitat loss, starvation and predators, not to mention but zoos and aquariums are credible to the thousands of lives and endangered species that have been saved.

  • Zoos are good!

    Listen up, all you people out there saying that animals are trapped in cages. They're not! Most animals in most zoos are kept in natural habitats that allow them no restraint. Zoos save endangered species and breed them. Many people say that they should be in the wild but guess what? Some zoo animals may be happier in captivity than in the wild because they get more food, more attention, and animals such as elephants do not have a risk of getting shot and poached, so just stop thinking about all the bad things zoos do, and I count 1 reason, and start thinking about what zoos do right because, in the end, being optimistic about them and volunteering can let you see that the zoo animals really do have a good life.

  • Are you insane!

    WE ARE TORTURING THESES ANIMALS AND HOW DARE YOU SAY THEY LIKE BEING TAKEN AWAY AS A BABY AND BEING THROWN IN TO EITHER A GLASS, CONCRETE OR IRON CAGE!!! YOU WOULDN'T LIKE IT SO DON'T DO IT TO OTHERS! Even though animals are being bred to "save the species" it doesn't work if you don't send them back to the wild which is the case with many zoos! The cruelty being shown to these animals is real and insane! ~Indonesia’ Surabaya Zoo is the most cruel zoo in the world, With all of their elephants painfully shackled, over 150 pelicans in one cage and starving camels! More than 50 animals have died in the last three months! A giraffe died last year after swallowing 20 kg of plastic bags that were not cleared! A Sumatran tiger’s intestines withered when the zoo kept feeding him formaldehyde-laced meat! One baby elephant had lacerations from three chained legs that did not allow him to move in any direction! The picture to the right is one of many starving camels. Scores of rats have been found in many of the cages! When a giraffe died they built a monument out of its bones as an attraction!
    Here is what a hippos’ enclosure looks like! --->
    Reports say that 43 animals have died between 15nth July and 17nth of September this year! One female orangutan was chewing on a marker pen that someone threw at her! 18 deer live in one 30 by 30 ft enclosure. This may be the worst zoo but there are many more! One zoos euthanized a healthy baby black bear and stuffed it to show that nature can be cruel!~ You cannot say that this is funny! Its terrible!

  • Yas i love zoos

    Zoos have a very positive impact on the environment

    Zoo’s help people understand the natural world around them. Zoo’s are very beneficial in helping scientist and biologists. In these closures, zoologists can view and observe the natural behavior of animals and how they react with their environments. Zoo’s are beneficial also in that they allow people to view a wide variety of animals safely. Although it’s great to see animals in their natural habitats, it can be dangerous and time consuming.

    Provide refuge for animals that have been affected by environmental changes and abused. Endangered animals can be safe from hunting and poaching. It also helps decrease stress that animals have in fear that they’ll be attacked by predators. Stress can affect animals in many ways, such as disturbing sleeping and growth patterns.



    Conservation allows animal populations to grow. The animals in the zoo of the same species can find mates easier and have better, healthier offspring. The offspring can be looked after better than in the wild and have a greater chance at survival in the zoo since staff can help get them the care that they need. Zoos assist animals that have overspecialized adaptations and help them fulfill their needs.
    Zoos help animals prevent extinction because they can help to breed the animals and get the population to grow. Eventually when there are more of an at risk species, the zoos can release some of the successfully bred animals into the wild again.

    In conclusion, zoos have a very positive impact on the environment because they show people how to take better care of the environment, and see what our carelessness could affect negatively.

  • Zoos support Research

    If we are to save many wild species and restore and repair ecosystems we need to know about how key species live, act and react. Being able to study animals in zoos where there is less risk and less variables means real changes can be effected on wild populations with far fewer problems. Knowing say the oestreus cycle of an animal or their breeding rate, or that they

    don’t seem to like a crop that’s about to be planted can make a real difference to conservation

    efforts and to reduce human-animal conflicts.

  • Zoos are bad for animals inviroment

    Zoos are bad for animals because the zoo keepers are torchering the animals and feeding them bad food witch causes the animals to get sick or even have a chance of dieing and they are not happier then they were set free animals should have the right to be set free in to the wild!!!

  • We want zoos

    We want to have children to have a good education and let them experience rare animals and learn new things. Yes I do agree that animals have small cages but we can change that so please let us keep the zoos u will be doing a huge favour thank you.

  • Zoos are good

    Zoos are really good for you because you get to see ultra rare species such as the black jaguar and black panther. It is able to educate children if they have a topic about the animals. You can see animals from the rainforest away from their natural habitat. That is why I vote yes.

  • They help all animals.

    They care for endangered species. Some animals can't find the food they need, like Pandas there food is really hard to find but the zoos give them the right food. As long as we aren't mean to the animals in the zoos they will be very happy being in zoos.

  • Endangered species protection

    Most of the endangered animals are at zoos to keep them alive and if we did not have zoos they probably would be all gone. My favourite animal is a Tiger and at school I watched a video and it was so sad because all of the Rain forest was cut down and all of the endangered animals were all gone but because of zoos they stopped that from happening to them.

  • Zoo's save animals from being extinct!

    Without zoos that care or animals, species like peacocks, sea lions, elephants, indian tigers, and many more would be extinct. Zoos care for them and make sure they are healthy. Sure they are held in a cage, but they are with family and the cage is made to look like a home, and even not all of them are held in a cage. The cages protect them.

  • They educate the wider community about animals

    Imagine if we didn't have zoos. It would be terrible and no one would be educated and know about wild animals. This is why I believe that zoos are a positive addition to our modern day world. So why are people wanting to get rid of zoos? It's a really silly idea. Zoos have great education programs and schools can go to the zoos and learn about the animals which is a great initiative. This is why I believe that zoos should not be taken away and it is okay to keep animals there as long as they are in a good and well maintained habitat and are cared for properly.

  • Zoos are amazing

    Zoos protect animals! Have we not forgotten the breeding and research programs which have saved so many lives? Without zoos we would be without the panda, orangutan, and many others.

    And BTW many people forget that animals are kept in enclosures, not cages. These are specially made to replicate their natural habitat.

  • Zoos are good

    Zoos help animals that are hurt, endangered, or just need a safe home. The Dodo bird extinction were because of people, there were no such thing as a "zoo" at that time. But the Bald Eagle overcome was only 30 years, and the population of bald eagles shot up from 25,000-75,000 all the way to 100,000.

  • Think About This

    What if the animal is endangered? And they close the zoos down? Where will the endangered animal go? To get killed and become ext-inked like the dinosaurs? Choose the right side. Make the right choice. It's your choice no one else's but be carful, you don't want to mess things up by choosing the wrong side.

  • Zoo are good because ,

    Bringing people and animals together, zoos educate the public and an appreciation of the animals. This exposure and education motivates people to protect the animals.
    Zoos save endangered species by bringing them into a safe environment, where they are protected from poachers, habitat loss, starvation and predators.
    Many zoos also have breeding programs for endangered species. In the wild, these individuals might have trouble finding mates and breeding.

  • I like zoos.

    Zoos are good because they keep animals safe and healthy so they can live longer.Sure they need to roam their land but animals get hunted and killed in the wild in the zoo they are protected.The zoo animals are treated with high class care.Zoos are just amazing to me guys

  • Zoos are awesome...

    They are often places for animals to live well and better lives than in the wild. They are cared for and fed well. They save endangered species from the wild. They are in spacious enclosures that look like their natural habitat and give the public a chance to see them

  • Animals live no where near as long in zoos as they do in the wild.

    Animals do not deserve to be treated so cruelly as they are in zoos.
    The zookeepers disrespect any animal if they do not listen to them, all the flashing lights from cameras can cause animals to go mentally ill, which could result in the animals scratching the cages, trying to attack people, and behaving more irrationally than usually.

  • Zoos Can Help

    Zoos are good because they can help endangered animals restore their species. They also support child education. Zoos can teach about how it is important to conserve and protect the wild for the animals' safety. Animals do die in zoos often, but that is part of the circle of life. We can't stop it unless it is meant to be.

  • Zoos can be good

    Zoos when done correctly are a great thing. They help animals and great zoos give the correct habitat and exercise the animals need. Of course there are bad zoos which are harmful. So really it's a case by case basis. This talk about freedom is rediculous. Animals main goal is first food then shelter then mating. Zoos give them that. Animals do t care about freedom the concept of freedom
    Is foriegn to them. If their pens are good then they are happy.

  • Why zoos are good.

    I think zoos should be allowed, seeing as they save the species from going extinct, and provide enough food to last through a whole year, and also provide the essential things they need . The zoos are also educational, allowing all the children to learn about the animals surrounding them

  • Zoos are very good

    Nowadays, zoo is not tge only place that imprioson many animal species but zoos provide all those sorts of thnigs that animals can not get by living in their habitual environments. Zoos are good in many ways, many animals are safe in zoos and get full care and zoos also provide animals with adequate food and water. Infact, animals are also kept in good care during the seasonal changings. i.e. summar or winter.

  • Zoos are beasty beasty

    Really America? Really?

    It is ridiculous to claim that animals are happier in the wild. Almost all the animals in zoos are rescues that are awaiting release or animals that are common enough to make its removal from the natural environment not harmful. Also zoos sponsor capture and breeding programs, and they can also keep species alive.

  • Good way to protect species and good source of information about animals

    Due to different changes in climatic conditions and many other factors, almost all the species of animals are endangered... Gradually many of the species which were commonly seen around us or in the wild are now becoming extinct because of which our future generations might not be able to see them... Zoos are a very good source of keeping these animals in a protected environment where they can be saved for our future generations.
    Moreover the zoos can help in increasing the general information of people about animals by displaying them and can even play a role in acknowledging people about the increasing danger these animals are facing.

  • Why they good

    They were breed in captivity. They protect threatened animal and breed endangered animals. They rarely take animals out of the wild. Even though some animals are put in small cages. The endangered ones would be gone by now, and i bet you they'd rather be in the zoo then dead.

  • Zoos do more good than you think.

    Most animals in zoo's are born in the zoo and can fend for themselves out in the wild. Zoos also rescue animals from pollution and severe storms. Zoos play a key part in preventing extinction. Zoos educate the public. Scientist learn about wild animals from zoo animals. Zoos provide the same resources to the animal as if it were in the wild. Animal research is important, it helps animals live longer with less chance of going extinct.

  • Zoos do good!

    Zoos save many endangered animals that would not have survived in the wild. People say that putting them in a cages is bad, but zoos do not put them in cage. They are in large enclosures that provide them with enough space to do most of what they could do in the wild. Also, farms, industrial businesses, and even human habitats tear apart the habitat of many animals. Zoos take those animals in and provide them with a safe place to live. I could go on forever on why zoos are good, but those are some points that stick out to me.

  • Yes it is

    Because zoos provide life for those in the wild who are about to have cubs but can't hunt for food because their babies will get took by another animal. In zoos the food is already there for them and their babies are well looked after by the staff. Also if the animals have hurt themselves or aren't feeling well they get attention straight away.

  • Zoos help alot

    -zoos can take in invasive species so the dont kill the ecosystem and they dont have to be killed instead.
    -zoos can breed endangerd animals like the pheonix zooo operation oryx, but wont have the chance of them getting poached.
    -zoos can feed the animals but in the wild they have a chance of not getting a meal
    -zoos can nurse young animals without the chance of them getting eaten by bigger animals.
    -zoos can take care and put animals in bad shape back to normal.
    -zoos can educate humans about the animals and put them up close face to face also.

  • Zoos help animals and humans

    -zoos can keep endangered and breed them with no chance of them getting poached.
    -zoos can help a human learn about the animals that they never knew about and get them face to face with each other.
    -zoos can feed the animal insted of the having a chance not having food in the wild.
    -zoos can take in invasive species so the dont have to destroy the land or get killed any more.

  • Animals need help too! Murica does dat

    Animals need help. So, 'Murica does dat! We can do anything to help animals! So, if we cancel out zoos there will be a dropout in economy! We are doing something to help! Not destroy! We can help the animals that are going extinct! So zoos are good for economy and wildlife!

  • Zoos are good!

    I think that zoos are good for the animals. It is a safe, natural place for them to live. It can even help endangered species, such as the California condor, get back to a non endangered species. In conclusion, zoos are a good place for the animals to happily live.

  • Zoos save animals

    Most zoos nurse young and old animals back to health, and without zoos I think most of the animals we have now would be extinct. Zoos educate humans about the importance of throwing trash away and taking care of our planet. -Zoos are also good entertainment for kids and parents-I needed Nine more words

  • Really? Obvious Answer!

    People need to think about how many endangered species there are, and how many extinctions there are about to be. When an animal is in a zoo it is taken away from the poachers, not having a habitat, and being extinct. Zoos are good for endangered species because they get bred and find mates.

  • Zoos save all kinds of animals

    Zoos save all kinds of animals, but save endangered animals the most. When endangered animals are in the wild, they go through a LOT of stress and rough times. If these animals get a disease, they can't cure it and that animal will most likely pass away. Also, animals have to hunt for food, putting them through much stress and harm. When they are I zoos, they can get medicine for disease and food. Even though they don't get the best food, they get something that will let them live a long and successful life.

  • Zoos help save endangered animals

    If we didn't have zoos, we wouldn't have any of the endangered animals we had today. Zoos give these animals food and shelter. I admit they don't get the best, but atleast they get some. Out in the wild they have to get their own food, (which is very difficult) and wastes time and effort. If they can't catch the animal they could die from stress or starvation. At least endangered animals can live successfully in zoos

  • Zoos Are helpful

    Zoos provide a habitat for animals who's habitat is getting destroyed. Humans are not super robots, and they are trying their hardest to save animals. I do agree it is not good to have animals in cages, but a little shelter is better than none. Zoos have also save a ton of endangered species on the brink of extinction.

  • Save the animals

    Hundreds, if not thousands of abused animals are recued by zoos and brought back to good health. Not only do zoos save exotic animals from death but also bred them to bring back that species. According to Animal Planet, the Los Angeles and San Diego Zoos were able to rebuild the population of California condor vulture from two dozen to about 170 birds. Zoos have improved greatly over the years and are still today. With the help of the public, we can fix the broken relationship between human and animal.

  • Zoos are good

    Zoos help endangered animals. Endangered animals will probably will die on there own. Zoos will treat them and breed them and they won't be endangered anymore. They also will heal them if they're hurt and treat them with respect. I don't understand how people think zoos are bad. They help animals in need.

  • In say yes they are good they are not caged they are seperated from preadators

    The Los Angeles and San diego zoo helped bring the California Condor population up to 170 from less than half a dozen. They are not alone. They do not have to find food so they will not go to sleep hungry and they get free roam of their habitat. This is why zoos are good for animals and not bad.

  • Zoos are a good place for learning

    Because there are lots of schools out there who want to go on exiting school trips and visits but if there are no zoos there will be no places to go and see endangered species without going into/to very dangerous places like forests, seas, jungles, caves, deserts, islands and more

  • Hmm, I wonder...

    It's really funny how people keep saying 'zoos are bad', 'zoos are cruel', 'caging animals up is cruel'. Well, If we aren't wrecking up the environment today, so that the animals have to live in zoos, none of this would be happening. We keep saying that we should let out the animals to live in the wild, when we are the ones who are actually making them live in a zoo. True, that they shouldn't be caged up, but what about tearing apart their natural habitat for businesses, and industrial facilities? So it would be useless to say animals should live in the wild, as you have already 'ruined' the wild anyways.
    So in truth, animals don't really have anywhere else to live. Sad.

  • The idea is

    The "idea" of a zoo is a good thing. As a species we have evolved and are evolving to live more simple/efficient lives, greed being a dominant trait. We are the most dominant species on the planet and if we want to do a thing, we can do a thing and only mother nature can stand against us. In our arrogance, man did what it wanted, took what we needed from animals and their homes. We will keep on doing it until we have evolved intellectually enough to understand them and to live in equilibrium with them. Until that day comes I believe Zoos are a good way to keep animals "alive" and "safe" from us. They just need a lot more funding from us.

  • Zoos help animals

    Zoos don't threaten animals or mistreat them. Their habitats are getting destroyed by humans, and zoos put them out of danger. Also, zoos don't just kidnap animals and take them there, most animals are rescues. That means taking care of the animal until it's healthy again. By then the animal would be used to being fed at a certain time. You can't just put it back out in the wilderness and expect it to live. Think about zoos as you and your pet. If you have a dog is it mistreating it to teach it a trick or have it live in your home? No. Zoos are

  • It just depends

    An animal can be happy in the wild but also at the zoos because there and no longer hunters or predators. But the animal may never know how to survive and hunt on its own. But zoos can help save endangered species. It all depends on the zoo and how they care for their animals.

  • Conservation and Education

    In my opinion, zoos are amazing places. I know that there are some zoos in the world that do not put their animals welfare first, which is wrong, however most zoos that follow and stick to rules and guidelines and makes sure the the animals have the best lives they can are amazing. Children need to be educated about wildlife and what they an do to help species. Conservation projects need to be there to ensure no great species becomes extinct. Humans are the ones making animals endangered and extinct so we need to be the ones to try and fix this. I think zoos are great because they help animals whose chances would be very slim on their own.

  • They help endangered species

    I think zoos are good because they help endangered species that would not be able to stay alive by them self. Even though not all zoos are very ethical most of them are good ones which do not harm anyone. They also help you learn about animals. And for most animals i think they would find it as good as the wild

  • Zoos are great

    Zoos help everyone I think that zoos help everyone. If an animal is hert then it can help it and give it the medication that it needs to help it heel. Plus scientists can look at the animals they need to look at up close or if there is a endangered animal is in the zoo it can help the animal population.

  • Why zoos are good

    Zoos are good, because they save endangered animals and some zoos even donate money to other zoos so that they can take care of the animals. They don't want to hurt them. If you disagree with me and anyone else that says zoos are good then get off your lazy butt and do something about it. !!!

  • Zoos are great

    Yes, I admit that there are zoos out there that take bad care of their animals but (and I've heard this said a lot to argue that zoos are good) if you have one corrupt cop, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't have anyone to enforce the law. You just fire that one cop, The same should work for zoos. Also, zoos protect and save endangered animals. Take the condor vulture for example. That animal was saved. Another good thing about zoos is that they do helpful research on animals and they teach people more about our furry, scaly, or feathery friends. Yes, there are bad zoos but there are also good zoos and to rid the world of zoos entirely would be like, as Harper Lee would put it, killing a mockingbird.

  • Zoos are good.

    They can help animals from injuries and can sometimes even save their lives! I think zoos are really good and can even teach people all about animals. I love zoos I think they are really interesting and educational everyone should go to zoos and raise money for animals in need.

  • Zoo's are an incredible way to see animals

    A lot of people don't like zoos because they "Keep animals hostage," or things like that. But, you can see animals from all around the world just by going to your local zoo. Others say that they wouldn't be the same as if they were in the wild. Well yeah but, if you saw a wild animal (bear, lion, tiger,etc) it would most likely maul you to death. So in conclusion, zoos are a great way to see animals from all around the world while not dying in the process

  • Animals Are Safe In Zoos

    Animals are not treated badly in zoos. They are actually treated very well nowadays, because over time people have targeted zoos that were cruel to animals and these places have stopped. Also, animals are protected from the dangers in the wild while they are in zoos. They are protected from predators, extinction, and hunters.

  • Zoos are good

    Zoos help educate visitors by teaching them facts like where a certain animal lives or what it eats. Zoos can help in increasing the general information of people about animals by displaying them and can even play a role in acknowledging people about the increasing danger these animals are facing. Seeing an animal in person is a much more personal and more memorable experience than seeing that animal in a nature documentary. Zoos also give time for people to spend with their family. A lot of the animals people enjoy seeing wouldn't be around without zoos.

    Zoos help rehabilitate wildlife and take in exotic pets that people do not want or do not take care of zoos help animals like sea turtles caught in garbage or seagulls caught in netting. Zoos such as the Big Bear Alpine Zoo in CA receive over 100 animals each year that have been so negatively impacted so they cannot live in the wild. The Taronga zoo in Australia receives or cares for over 1500 animals each year then releases the animals back into the wild.

    Many zoos have breeding programs for endangered species. An example is in the National Zoo in Washington D.C. Which has saved species such as the Guam rails which were at a total population of 21 in 1985, and the Black footed ferret which was at a total population 18 in 1985. The symbol of the USA, the Bald Eagle is currently an endangered species. They are one of the many endangered species that zoos take in and take care of. There are 41,415 species on the red list which is the global wide list of endangered species and 16,306 are endangered currently around the world.

    Their movement might be restricted but they will not suffer from the threat or stress of predators or the irritation and pain of parasites, injuries and illnesses will be treated, they won’t suffer or die of drought or starvation and will get a varied and high-quality diet with all the supplements required.

    We want to keep this planet's wildlife around for future generations.

  • Broaden our horizon

    In my opinion, a zoo is a good place. First, a zoo is a good place to have fun with family and friends, we can see many happy kids in a zoo, so a zoo gives children happiness. Second, a zoo has many cute animals. Finally, we can broaden our horizon.

  • I hate Zoos

    I think they are bad because the animals could be taken from their family and be hurt by the people that are catching them or loading them on to a plane or something and they don't have as much space as if they were in the wild they could go any where they want.So that's why I think we should not have zoos.

  • Yes yes YES!

    I don't think that zoos are good because they are bad and mean and nit nic and I dint like them, they are really mean and they are bad like evil bananas no no no no no they are bad things. They remind me of a little child. I like zoos they are good. I don't don't like zoos.... Or do I

  • Zoos are unfare to animals

    Zoos are unfare and do not give animals sufficient space to roam around and live freely. They take animals from their natural habitats and put them with different species. The habitats are tiny and unrealistic. I personally feel bad for any animal who has to live in a tiny zoo.

  • I don't like zoos

    Animals should not be mistreated just for human entertainment. It is wrong that they are caged because humans want to see exotic animals instead of having to travel to foreign countries. The human mind is programmed to find the simplest way to do something and in this case zoos are the easiest. People should get off their lazy butts and go somewhere.

  • Caging animals is wrong.

    Keeping other animals locked in cages for our entertainment, or even education, is immoral. They should be allowed to roam their native habitats freely. Imagine being taken from your homeland and living the rest of your life in an enclosed space for the amusement of others. Zoos are completely unethical.

  • They are cruel and unkind to animals.

    They take animals away from their natural habitats, families, packs or neighbors. Although they help save some endangered species, they put them in either the zoo again or the wild,where they are not used to and will probably be killed or eaten by other animals. They also keep the animals in places that are at least 100 times smaller than their habitats in the wild. I rest my case. I disagree with zoos. Thanks for reading this!

  • Don't Forget The Ecosystems

    We all can't forget that each animals are part of a ecosystem and if there taken out of it it will ruin that ecosystem they were in. Then if there they taken out of the ecosystem they'll become invasive and it will be hard to capture all of them. Also zoos make animals mate on force, what if they don't want to mate with each other. Also there more ways to keep animals safe. For example they can get protected land and they can also put them in national parks. That is why I believe that zoos are harmful to animals.

  • Zoos torture animals.

    Zoos are miserable places for animals. They don't give animals sufficient space. Animals suffer and die in zoos. Zoos are connected to animal circuses where they hurt the animals. Animals are taken from the wild and put in zoos. The animals don't sleep in zoos. Now, the animals aren't allowed to do whatever they want.

  • Zoos are BAD

    As much as zoos offer education, they still keep animals caged up so we can laugh at them inside. For example, I took a look at this question and saw a site where it showed animals dying and in need at a ZOO. Some zoos are good, like the Greenville Zoo and the River Banks Zoo. So, zoos are officially bad!

  • Zoos are cruel

    On a different site I saw that some body shot animals that had escaped and somebody shot them. Also keeping animals in zoos are things we shouldnt do. For exanple there many other ways to make sure animals stay alive, forexample why not buy prtected land for those animals. Somae ani mals need certain exercise to live. Tyhats why i think we shouldnt haave zoos

  • I think zoos are hamful

    I think that zoos are harmful because your puting the animals lives at risk. You are also putting the animals life at risk,the animals have to have a conpanion to like. Even thought zoos can repopulate endangered species it has killed many animals. I also bileave that zoos have overpopulated animals and made human lives harder to like.

  • Zoos are bad

    Zoos prevent animals from being in the wild. We use animals for our own good, but i guess it's not really good. Animals are beautiful creatures and we don't want to take way there beauty. People give animals severe distress called zoochosis. So zoo doctors, "vets" give them something called prozac, which is a drug that calms them down. Does this seem fair too you?

  • They are bad

    They is bad I think a zoo has its good side which is saving species from extinction. Educating the public and giving them an upclose look is great too. However between tv, youtube, the internet, and documentaries you can get your fill there really imo.

    The bad. One youtube video I watched was a gorilla slamming the glass and all the people laughing and pointing. For whatever reason it struck me and I wished that gorilla had broken the glass and attacked those people. It was just sad how we dominate and confine a species so close to himan because we can and because we can make a buck.They is bad I think a zoo has its good side which is saving species from extinction.

  • No More Zoos

    Animals do not deserve to be locked up and looked at. They need to have the freedom to choose where they want to be. They have feelings too. The wild is where they feel at home not locked in metal bars, that's scary for them. They are not just artwork on a wall.

  • Zoos are bad

    Zoos are bad because they could be fed the wrong food! There is a zoo in Africa that a giraffe escaped and was in a highway! It's so sad! A group of red pandas died beacause of rat poisoning! :( a gorilla vomited from being fed the wrong food! That is why zoos are bad.

  • The idea is cool, but the commercialism sucks

    Zoological centers probably started out with the best of intentions, to protect species that wouldn't survive in the wild. But many zoos as they are now are making a mockery of that. Animals are caged and used for entertainment à la the circus, and some zoos seem to collect rare species so they can make more money off people who want to see them. Current zoo conditions seriously hamper most animals - planting a tree or two or placing some rocks and sand about doesn't recreate the wild for them, and the result is generation upon generation of animals that wouldn't last a day in their actual natural habitats and who can only thrive in captivity - promoting the zoos' interests. Personally I think reserves are a more sensible approach to species conservation and preservation; the animals are left in their habitats, but these habitats are protected by law from human 'developers', and environmentalists work in the background, only intervening in the animals' lives if it is absolutely required to preserve the delicate ecological balance (for instance, if an epidemic threatens to wipe out the reserve's population of an endangered species, they would provide medical care).

  • ZOOS make me sick

    Animals are things that were put on this earth to live in the wild and be happy.And live there lives like they want like humans.BUt that's not happeneing. Everey day animals are captured and taken to zoo's for ''entertainment'' and ''education''.But looking at animals while they are in so much stress and putting them in more stress that's sick. Studies have shon animals live way longer in their habitat in the wild than in zoos.Would you like to be treated like this.That's right you wouldn't.If you wouldn't want to be treated like this than don't treat poor stressful animals like this.They deserve better.

  • Zoos are horrible

    Seeing animals trapped like that with so much stress is sick.Animals are meant for the wild that's where they belong you can't just take them away from that.Studies have shown that animals live up to 15 years more in the wild than in the zoo.How would you like this?That's right you wouldn't don't do this to poor helpless animals.

  • Zoos are good

    They are good because they take endangered animals from the wild, and put them in the zoo. They breed them there and increase their population. In some zoos, the cages or domains are like their habitat. Zoo keepers are good to the animals and feed them well. The endangered animals don't need to hunt or risk being killed. That's why I think zoos are good.

  • They cage good and innocent animals

    They are sad in cages and it is mean because they need to run and be in the free and wild. Yes, they may live longer, but what is what they really need and want, to be free and need to know how to live and how to catch their own food because if they don't know how to survie cuz they were in the zoo. They WILL DIEEEEE

  • Zoos are bad!!!

    Zoos have been giving animals emotional and physical stress and zoos aren't natural habitats for the animals and there's a disease called Zoochosis and there's no learning in zoos. Zoos aren't natural habitats because of space and freedom. Even the best cages are not even close to the ones in the wild.

  • Zoos are bad

    I am doing a report on zoos and all the websites I have used they have all been bad. And at my zoo they are some what nice but they are also mean. And that is why I said NO. And they are so mean they killed a giraffe and fed it to the lions.

  • Animals will never see there family again.

    Animals are taken away from the homes, they are put in a cagge to suffer. This is no place to live for an animal. Poeple want the animals out of the zoo, i am glad i am one of those people. People should learn more about animals, and not just watch them perfrom. If they send the animals back to were they came from the animals woukd act different because they don't know what to do.

  • Have You Seen Their ACTUAL Living Environment?

    TIP: Just search up on Google, Cruelty of Zoos and put Images

    EYE OPENER
    Its just terrible how zoos steal everything they had to enclose them in a small cage for the entertainment of people. Behind those bars are animals with empty eyes and tortured souls. Think about how they feel :(

  • Zoos are horrifying

    In some zoos, animals get killed because they have lost their youthfulness. Some send their animals to a livestock auction. Others send them to the circus.Animals were made to be in the wild. When somebody goes out into the wild and captures animals and takes them away from their natural habitat to confine them to a cage, it's obvious the animal wouldn't like it.

  • Zoos Are bad

    They are kinda bad after reading all of these I realized that zoos are just prisons advertised as paradises when really they are nightmares. Zoos don't try to harm the animals but they also don't try NOT to harm them either. Lets say a tiger escapes, you evacuate the zoo and then you kill it, horrible right? They could just tranquilize the animal instead of killing it.

  • I do not like zoos

    Because there animals might die and because animals are held captive and they need to be in there real habitat and a zoo is basically a animal prison ........And animals never has done anything to us so why are we holding them captive?....... So that is why we should not buy anything more at zoos so cancel youre next zoo visit because the more we do not go to zoos the animals will get free

  • Zoos do not always help the animals.

    Every year in the USA over 25 million animals are used in biological experiments.
    No matter how big some zoos try to make the enclosures but the enclosures do not resemble the animals natural habitat enough.
    Zoo animals can scare young kids.
    Zoos are bad and costly so do not go there enlist willing to help save the animals.

  • Diseases on animals

    In the zoo, many animals develop bad diseases such as, zoochosis. Zoochosis is a mental illness that is obtained by animals held in captivity. They are driven mad by the environment they are in. Sometimes monkeys groom themselves so much, that they are bald. That is why I hate zoos.

  • Cruel treatment towards animals

    Animals have been known to want to commit suicide in the past, that is how bad zoo life gets for them.
    As humans what makes so special that we have the right to imprison other species. It is evil and shouldn't be in our power to do that.
    Have you ever imagined being locked up behind glass like a photo- without life or feelings, used just to get money for the company.

  • Zoos are bad!

    Just to let you know, people who chose the "Yes" side. Zoos are bad indeed. The animals need space, privacy! Also the animals are also suffering from people who taunt them. I heard that a gorilla actually had got killed by policemen because he had escaped from his cage. He wasn't actually just escaping because he was big and bad. He was escaping because of the people who laughed and taunted him. I hope my point really helped you say No to Zoos!

  • Zoos are bad!

    I think that zoos are bad because zoos take animals from their real homes and trap them in cages with other kinds of animals. Zoos also don't really take care of the animals when they are in the zoo. The animals are always so depressed because they aren't with their families. The animals only hit the glass because they want to get out of the horrible place. The when they do that, they get punished for wanting to go back into their real homes, the wildness.The animals should't be caged without their families. For example, there was a video where a polar bear wasn't looking at the crowd because it was lonely and without it's family.

  • I think that Zoos are Bad

    I think that Zoos are Bad because Zoos keep animals in a place without their friends and family. Zoos also don't have the exact same habitat as they do in the wild. Animals hit the glass because they want to get out of that place. I call Zoos animal prison.

  • Zoo's are cruel to animals and should be shut down.

    Imagine you're a tiger in the wild and then a much of human tranquilize you and take you from home. Yeah, I wouldn't like it very much. These zoo keepers and hunters are taking animals from there home habitat. Sure, people say that zoos help endangered animals, but to solve that,you just open endangered zoos for just helping endangered animals. It isn't needed to show off all the animals. Then, people say kids learn from going to the zoo. But seriously, we just go there to see animals and have fun. If we wanted to learn about animals we would do it ourselves.

  • Zoo's are bad.

    I mean why do we keep animals in a small pin its not fair those pour creatures they need a open area if there's a zoo they need to have enough money to have two or more of each animal and enough land like an acre for each animal ..

  • Zoos are cruel

    I think zookeepers shouldn't be locking up animals in cages or bars. Animals need to free and able to live there life ,not boxed up in a cage there whole life. Another thing is zoos prevent animals from being wild. I know zoos think that they are pretecting animals from preditors and harmful things but they aren't.

  • We should not cage wild animals

    Us humans should not cage up wild animals. Animals should belong in their own habitat not some place where they feel trapped and don't feel like they can run and be free. Last time I went a wild life zoo and the look on all those animals were so unhappy the felt trapped.

  • Zoo's are cruel

    All they do is cage animals and people bother them. Then the people transfer them in tiny cages. These animals deserve to be free in the wild not caged i'd rather destroy all zoo's and let all the the animals out so they can be free and have no worry's about a single thing.

  • Zoos suck and they are boring

    I think that animals shouldn't be at zoos because they don't do anything all day. They always sit around an do nothing and the zoo keepers make the animals mate when they don't want to. When animals try to escape and they make it over the fence they kill them.

  • Zoos are not good for animals

    Zoos are never good for animals because they keep the animals cooped up just to have people gawk at them all of their lives. Some animals even are all alone if the zoo doesn't have enough money to have more than one of a kind of animal. Think of being in the animal's shoes

  • Zoos aren't really that great

    Zoos can be boring at most times and maybe just a bit dangerous because there are sweets and sugar causes bees and bees can sting your children if they don't leave them alone and also animals can't be locked up all the time for reasons being. Animals are just to fragile. Some animals are used for testing and that's horrible

  • Zoos are bad

    Zoos are bad because they don't have the natural habitats that the animals need. There also try to breed animals when the animals dont want to breed.They don't have the space the animals need.And animals need to eat when they are hungry ,not when the zoo thinks they are.That is why zoos are really really really bad.

  • Zoos are a bad place.

    Zoos are a bad place for many reasons and good for many reasons.The reason they are bad is animals are kept captive for many years even their lifetime before getting released into the wild.Animals get bored and not able to do things when they are held captive for lots of time even some get sick of boredom maybe even die.When babies are born they are not with their mothers they are taken away from each other and sold to other zoos then being with their mothers ,brothers and, sisters.Although they help with extinction they have nothing to do while they are in their cages or houses.When animals are in their cages they are being teased buy kids and adults with food and pounding on the glass.Animals deserve to be in the wild where they were born and meant to be with others and deadly things of the wild and the leader of the packs

    Zoos are good because animals may not be happy but a bat or a bird or any other small animal would get eaten. When they are in zoos they will be feed. The animals get protection,food and water! There are many animals that are happy at the zoo. People love it to, they look at animals that you would never see!

  • Zoos are bad

    Zoos are bad because they are keeping animals in small room where they don't have friends or anyone to play with.Some people thing that keeping animals on the Zoos is good because that way hunters do not kill them or animals don't fight with each other . But what they do not know is that animals need someone to play too, they are not only animals they have feelings like us the need to have someone to be with them playing

  • Zoos aren't good for animals

    It's pretty clear, to me at least, that zoos are no good. First of all, they take animals from their homes. As if that isn't enough, those animals are locked up in small, fake, habitats that are not at all like the animals natural habitat. People then come and gawk at them, and that is not right.
    All living things are created equal, but zoos do not at all prove this. Zoos are telling us that humans are the most important form of life and that we are allowed to lock up other animals. We should not do this. We are not evil. And that's exactly what zoos are.

  • Zoo are bad

    Zoos when i think of zoos all i think of is caged animals its not right to cage animals for our own entertainment yea they may just be animals but they have feelings to it not good to put a WILD animal inside a small cage and who knows these animals are maybe depressed have you notices how all these animals just sleep because theres nothing else to do well yea sure its fun to see an animal but like i said its not right to cage an animal for our entertainment.

  • Zoos are meanie heads >:o

    Zoos are mean to animals.They whip them and keep them in a small area.They also don't feed them good.The BIG animals only get fed once a day!They don't get the animals walk to the zoo.They trank them,and capture them,they meanie heads !And it's barely enough food for a snack!I rest my case.Zoos are bad!

  • Zoos can save many endangered species

    There is such a thing called SSP, Species survival program, which manages the breeding of specific endangered species to maintain certain population. SSP is also used as a research tools in order to understand wildlife biology and population dynamics, and to raise awareness and funds to support field protection for specific species in many zoos around the world. Zoos can also educate growing children. It gives important information and facts that student have to learn. However, we have to notice that not all the animals in the zoos are treated perfectly. There are some mistreats going on in many zoos. But, still it gives more positive influence than negative influence to the world.

  • How can a zoo ever be good

    People say that zoos have improved and they now take care of animals very well. However, no matter how much zoos improve, they can never have a positive impact on animals. Capturing animals is morally wrong in the first place. Because animals are trapped in cages, this confinement has a negative psychological effect on animals. Animals are supposed to live in their natural habitat and live independently in the wild, but zoos make them weaker and less independent. Nature should decide how the animals live, not the humans.

Capturing animals forcefully and putting them in cages for the rest of their lives is morally wrong in the first place. Animals are not meant to be put in cages for the entertainment of humans. They should be in their natural habitat and live how a normal animal should live. In a zoo, animals can not live how they naturally should, and they eventually become weaker and less independent. The confinement also has negative psychological effects on animals. Whatever happens to the animals, nature should decide how they live, not the humans.

  • I think that animals should be free and try to solve their own problems to grow

  • Successful conservation does not occur within cages.

    Probably, once in your lifetime, you would have gone to the zoo. You would remember yourself with a cotton candy in one hand and observing the mystical animals roaming around their section and the amusing paths, which leads to the animals. However, what you remember is never the reality. Large elephants are captured in small cages, where they merely have space to move. Gigantic crocodiles are lying down on dry cement floors. Because of these unsanitary and bad quality conditions, zoo animals, which live in different conditions from their original habitat, are suffering from various diseases and stress. Not only the bad conditions but also zoo workers are part of the reasons why zoos can't be considered as conservation. Zoo workers, who have major power over animals, abuse their positions of power and beat up or torture animals in order to train them. For instance, what kind of training techs do you imagine were used to make these proud and wild animals to be so obedient? Consequently, these lead to high infant mortality rates and reduction of longevity of zoo animals. Zoos are definitely not solutions to preserve and cure the broken biodiversity.

  • I do not support zoos.

    I do not support zoos,because pandas are suffering from human greed. Zoos are collecting a plethora of rare animals. Not only common animals but also rare animals are seen in zoos. That means extinct animals can't live for a long time and reproduction is limited in the harsh condition. S

    Not trying to be mean but at lest it's not bad as the circus.
    And to the people that never seen a bear you can see one at the zoo.
    And the sick ones can't heal them selfs in the wild or can they?
    There are like little home for them in the zoo

  • Zoo are so bad

    In an art.And For a year Maggie the elephant was forced to spent her day in a small indoor enclosure because it was too cold for her to go outside.
    ”The government and even the local newspapers of Swaziland had blamed Mick and his father for sending the elephants to zoo for money.

  • Zoos are dangerous and unsafe for civilians and the animals inside the enclosure.

    Have you ever noticed what's been happening to animals closed in zoos? Have you seen repetitive circles that go on and on. Or even head bobbing, or swaying. Ring a bell? That's a mainly animal disease or illness that those cute monkeys or tigers get if they are locked in a small cage. The disease is called ZooChosis, scientists have proved this illness. Predators such as lions and tigers and bears, (Oh My!) have gone mad by the illness. A report in San Francisco took place of a tiger attack on three civilians. A teen and two young men, the wounds so bad the teenager died. Police are still investigating the accident. This happened because of ZooChosis. Scientists think it happened because the tiger went mad inside the cage. More cases have been called for situations like this one. Zoos are not safe for communities and the animals. Thank you.

  • The zoos sometimes are cruel. Also they hurt them.

  • Zoos are horrendous

    Here is one reason why zoos are terrible. A reason is that once animals have been taken in, they feel cared for. But when they get sent out the don’t know what to do because zoos cared for them all their life and then die. Then, some zoos wip their animals to do silly trick for their audience. They are kept in cages but, why do they deserve this prison? That was one of the reasons why zoos are horrendous.

  • Zoos are harmful

    Animals can get diseases from being taken away from their own habitats because have you ever seen animals bobbing their heads up and down, pacing back and forth, turning in never ending circles, and tearing holes in their own skin because of how miserable the animals are living in zoos.

  • They are unnatural

    Animals deserve to be free and roam about wherever they please. While in a zoo, they are trapped and its not natural. Animals don't get to interact with other animals and they don't get all of their proper nutrition. Its very sad how animals are trapped their whole lives while humans have more freedom. Animals need to grow up living in their own habitat, not a small one at the zoo.

  • No they aren't because they keep animals cooped up

    Why should animals be kept in cages probably not even 1/10 the size of their natural habitats? They shouldn't! Animals should be left to roam the wild and fend for themselves and learn how to survive instead of being on a strict diet to help! Zoos are out of order

  • Zoos are bad

    They hurt animals and put them in small spaces. However some zoos are good and give them plenty of space and take them only if they are hurt. They can also help endangered animals by breeding them. Some good zoos are phoenix zoo and out of Africa safari park. They can be good and bad.

  • The animals don't get to do stuff that they usually do wild and free

    The animals don't do a lot anymore after they are put in zoo pens or cages.The animals can get choked by stuff people throw in the pens or cages like cans,plastic,and other hazardes wastes.The people can
    kill the animals that way and other different ways. That's why the animals don't need to be in zoos

  • Why Capture Animals!?

    Zoos are taking animals from their natural habitats in the wild! Why not just enjoy them from the safety of a van in the middle of the wild in their natural habitat! I am so enraged at the thought of animals committing suicide to get out of the torture of zoos! (Written by a 10 year old)

  • Animals in zoos is wrong!

    Zoos aren't suitable for animals. They are sad in zoos. There is not enough space in the zoos they live in. Many of these animals were born in captivity but how does that make it a healthier environment for them? People would argue that animals often suffer physically and mentally in captivity.
