We should have zoos because first it saves the animals' lives, because in a forest they don't have much food to eat, and it's really hard to find food. However, in zoos they give them limited food in time to conserve the animals.
In my opinion, it's also good for the scientists and people because they can learn more about animals and make them safe, and we might make a new invention. Another reason is you can touch the animals and watch the animals' skills and what it can do. Additionally, we can sit beside the animals outside their cages and have a nice yummy picnic with delicious food.
Zoos have the best facilities to maintain or take care of the animals because they have special doctors for it. DON'T EVER THINK HAVING A ZOO IS A BAD IDEA, NO WONDER THE ZOO IS GOING THROUGH SOME FINANCIAL PROBLEMS.
Zoos are what bring the rest of the world to a park where people can see. You can see the habitat the animals and the lifestyle these animals have that brings joy to kids eyes. Its a once in a lifetime experience for most kids and its one of their greatest memories.
Of course we should have zoos! The animals in the zoo get treated better then they would in the wild. They are protected and sheltered, and still have PLENTY of space to roam around in. Our major zoo, the Bronx Zoo, has acres of land for those animals who need it. It also gives children the opportunity to experience different types of animals that they would not get to experience elsewhere.
We should have zoos as an opportunity for us to learn about animals and habitats. However, we should make sure that the habitats are okay for the animals and that they are not mistreated in any way. Another positive benefit to zoos is the ability to encourage an environment where animals that are in danger of becoming extinct can reproduce.
First of all, zoos help endangered species by breeding two of them to make more, and they take care of them so they don't die. Zoos also save abandoned animals that they find and help them live healthy. We can also see real animals from faraway places so we don't have to go through the trouble of going there. Animals are safe in zoos. They can't be shot or hurt because the zoo has a security system. This is why zoos are so important.
In my opinion, zoos are just a way for cities to get extra profit. In response to a post that support zoos, animals in zoos DO NOT get treated better than those in the wild. It has been proven that on average, animals in zoos are more depressed and lonely than those in the wild. If you want to research animals, animal refuges are the better choice. locking animals up in glass cages and putting them on display is not the answer.
For many species, more every day, it may well be that zoos are there only hope. While menageries started as spectacles not involved or caring at all about conservation or ecology, today they may be some species saving grace. Zoos help repopulate certain species, educate teh world about the need to appreciate and conserve nature, and offer a refuge for animals wounded or treated badly by humans.
Zoos help endangered animals and protect them. If we didn't have zoos animals would probably be running for their lives. Also they help kids with education which makes kids and adults more inspired by the animals. Its a good thing we have zoos or on this earth we probably wouldn't have some of the animals we have today.
If one where to read the book Life of Pi, they would fully understand the need for zoos. You see, animals aren't truly free in the wild. I mean, sure, they are allowed to roam wherever they please, but only where there is enough food. Only where there is enough water, and a place to raise their young. Zoo's however, supply all of these things. They take away the worry in the animals life. They do what is suspect many humans wish they could have. Not all zoo's are good, but some, such as the San Diego Zoo, supply a place where animals can be truly free; free of fear, free of worry, free of doubt.
Animals that are endangered should go to zoos, because zoos help increase the endangered species. Don't go on safari because you might pollute the animal's habitat. In the zoo, animals don't get eaten from predators, so that they are protected. There should be zoos because animals get fed everyday, but in the wild they have to search for their food.
Hi, I'm Noah and zoos are a bad idea, you will go to a circus and see an elephant pacing around that is a sign of distress and a symptom of zoochosis. Zoochosis is a zoo illness that animals in zoos get. Animals will bite off their skin, pace around, and have a lot of other symptoms. Zoos are really a cruel way of entertaining. How would you like it if you were separated from you family? Plus, they first use a tranquilizing dart that can really harm animals. Next, their habitats are all artificial so they could get harmed if they ate any of it. Zoos don't give animals enough food and when they tranquilize they get put in a cage, right? It is hard for animals to breathe. Sadly, if there is an overpopulation some animals are sold for slaughtering. Also, zoos only cover the minimum standard of everything for all the animals. Then zoos don't even fulfill animals desires to stay busy. Also, zoos have a captive breeding program but when the animals are ready to go back to the wild zoos donit release the animal. Yet zoos don't even give enough food to all the animals. SO IF YOU SAID NO YOU ARE RIGHT
Zoos are prisons for animals, where animals are put in restricted areas that are very limited from what the animals would have in their natural habitat, where they could walk, run and fly long distances which is in their nature. It’s not healthy for the psych or the physic of these animals to be constricted in this way, in an environment that is NOT stress free. Hundreds of people visit the zoos everyday and contributes with loud noises, flashing cameras which is not natural for these animals even the ones who are born in captivity. Zoos does not only exist in wealthy countries that can offered to contribute to making the environment for the specific species of animals they have more “natural”, there are still zoos with plain caged iron bars, because zoos have become something that is “ok” wherever in the world they are located. Imagine how many zoos there are in the world, when basically every country has more then one and the amount of animals that are in captivity.
If you truly want to give your kids a learning experience making them true animal lovers, go see these animals in the wild, save your money for that safari trip or whale watching instead of contribute and supporting the ones who earn money on these animals in captivity. There is nothing more magic then observing wild animals in their natural habitat.
Instead of putting all endangered species in captivity we need to preserve their natural habitats, from hunters, global warming and polluting the oceans and rainforest deforestation. Do all that you can, recycle so that your garbage don’t end up where it‘s not suppose to, buy rainforest alliance products so that you don‘t contribute to rainforest deforestation and ignorance, take the freaking buss instead of driving to work.
Don’t call yourself an animal lover when supporting zoos.
Zoos make the argument that it is for conservation. They have ripped these animals out of their homes and enslaved them for profit. For example, an elephant can walk up to 70 miles per day. How many miles can it walk in a zoo? Slavery was abolished for people, but not for animals. They are not here for our entertainment.
Sadists and people looking for entertainment by laughing at locked-up animals will want zoos. Of course, govts that want to make money might also want them. I am shocked to see that there is so much of demand from the public side - which shows how insensitive we are towards animals.
Animals belong in the wild, not on display.
The needs of animals far out-way the need for conservation. The big argument for zoo's are they help keep various species numbers up, help with genetic diversity within the species and protects them from extinction. What's the point when realistically they can't be reintroduced back into the wild as there's nowhere for them to go. Human entertainment and big business dressed up in a conservation skin.
Animals will not live in their natural habitat. Some animals don't get the food that they prefer or the correct diet. Some animals don't even live in the natural temperature! Many people only spend a few minutes looking at animals and then just start or continue talking to someone else. Sure animals won't get extinct if they go to reintroduction programs carried out by zoos but in this century, only 16 of 145 reintroduction programs succeeded bringing back the population of animals. Animals get caged in small spaces but they need more room to roam. After they are put back in their natural habitat, animals are used to the human service. They can die soon.
Because would you want to be trap inside a cage without no one around. Well no you don't, so how do you think animals feel like. When animals are inside their cages they feel like getting out and be free again. Imagine that you were stuck in a house probably someone trapped you. Wouldn't you feel like getting out? Of course you would, wouldn't you? I get it that zoo is fun, you get to see your favorite animal and even the animals that you have never seen before or the animals that you usually see everyday. But think about the animals, to them it's not fun but not fair either.So i think zoos shouldn't exist.
No, we should not have zoos. Wild animals were not meant to be caged and put on display. Instead of a zoo with cages and glass displays, there should be areas similar to zoos where animals can exist in settings more like their natural environment. Stuffed animals or even replicas could serve as displays for people to look at. The only difference would be that people would no longer be able rap their knuckles on the glass panes or throw peanuts through the bars to get the animals to respond.
Animals are taken away from their families and put in zoos where people just stare at them. How would you feel if everyone was staring at you all the time? Just like all humans, animals should be free too. Animals get stressed out when they are in a zoo and away from their family.
Zoos are a cruel form of entertainment. To make people feel better it is said that these animals need help when the vast majority of the inhabitants are healthy. I'm all for the saving of endangered species or injured animals. However, caging them for the public eye is inhumane and will only worsen their health. Often zoo animals are found to be distressed and indulge in unnatural activities to fulfill their desire to stay busy. For example, the elephant walks up to 30 miles per day, meanwhile their enclosures are little more than a half mile long. Elephants are also very loyal and social creatures, yet they are constantly separated from their friends and moved from place to place. I cannot come up with any reason that animals should be displayed - what a cruel, yet fitting, word - to the public, with hardly any real means of education, and then are treated with poor conditions.
