  • Let the animals be safe.

    The animals are safe in zoos unlike when they are in the wild. Their habitats are destroyed and some animals are killed for food, clothing, or money like a rhino can be killed for its tusk or a lion can be killed for its fur. Anyway, the zoo IS a safe shelter for the animals.

  • Do You Want Death Rates To Go Up Higher ?

    I Am a 9th Grader and I think that animals should be kept in captivity because their safer there. I love animals and i have seen what some people have done to them just for their fur or horns. If we let animals just roam free eventually they will come up in the cities and raid us. I don't wanna see a dead animal every time i go out of town on the side of the street . Do You ? I didn't think you would though. When people start embracing wild animals and start showing people that they can be harmful, kids will try playing with them. Kids don't understand how animals feel, they just like to play like the next person likes too. So i really think the animals should be kept in the zoo inside cages :)

  • Yes we need zoos

    If they shouldn't how would we have zoos? Where would we go for entertainment? Where would children go to learn about animals? Zoos are a main part of our world and without them we wouldn't know half the things we know now about animals.Animals are not always bored in zoos they them selfs can be entertained.

  • Yes they should

    If you want to be safe and not let animals be walking all over the world agree with me it will make life better for everyone they have better habbitat they have better food and animals are SCARYYYYYYY i dont like animals that5s y they should stay in the zoo

  • Yes they should.

    Yes, there are just animals? Humans over rule animals. They are not kept in Cages, they have good enviroments, are provided fresh food and water each day, are given love and affection from people visiting, and get medical treatment. Being in the wild animals are more exposed to natural threats like , poachers, starvation and predators.

  • They have everything they need, and live peaceful lives.

    Wild animals, both endangered and thriving, have everything they need to survive in a zoo. The endangered animals are helped to breed and expand the population of their species along with being kept safe to prevent it dwindling anymore. This makes zoos perfect for endangered species but zoos also provide the same great care for the animals that aren't endangered. Animals in zoos aren't prisoners, they are like hotel guest being catered to 24/7.

  • To educate people about animals

    By bringing people and animals together, zoos educate the public and foster 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.
    Reputable zoos are accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and are held to high standards for the treatment of the animals. According to the AZA, accreditation means, "official recognition and approval of a zoo or aquarium by a group of experts."
    A good zoo provides an enriched habitat in which the animals are never bored, are well cared-for, and have plenty of space.

  • For their own good

    When in the wild they can be at risk of being hunted and killed for fur, or killed by other animals. In captivity they can be rescued and nourished back to health, fed food, and have a healthy environment, rather then some woods that can be burnt or chopped down for construction.

  • Yes cage them

    They should NOT What if they were the people amd we were the animals? Would you want to be held in cages and not be able to be free and do wat you want. I think its really stupid. They should live there life to the fullest. They life should be held by there self.

    Zoos are businesses that are made for money. • Zoos have birds who cannot fly, and tigers who cannot hunt. Surely you can learn more about wild animals by watching them in their natural habitat.
    • It is hard to see how looking at caged animals can teach us anything about their lives in the wild.
    • An earlier study found that only 2% of the world’s 6,000-plus threatened or endangered species were registered in zoo breeding programs. It is clear from these statistics that zoos actually do very little to help save the world’s endangered animals.
    • Some people say that animals in zoos are well looked after and are happy and contented. But wild animals need their freedom, and don’t enjoy captivity. No matter how well their keepers care for them, many suffer because they are not suited to living in a cage, tank or enclosure.

    No wild animals shouldn't be kept in captivity It is inhumane to treat animals in a way not befitting of them, to place a wild animal in an enclosed environment against their will is one of those types of treatment. They should be able to be themselves.....To explore as they see fit to do within reason. Short of that, they should be given time to integrate into a new environment slowly rather than confined to it immediately, so they could adjust.

    Either way, I don't think a wild animal should be kept in captivity against its' will.

    Get them out! Most zoos don't provide the right kind of care for wild animals. This can mean cramped spaces and an improper diet. Just think about how you would feel trapped in a concrete cage for about 50 years! Zoos sell animals and break bonds between animals that have been together since birth. Captivity can also lead to overpopulation. Animals in captivity can suffer from stress, boredom and confinement.

    ANIMALS IN CAPTIVITY SAY NO Animals should not be kept in captivity because they need to be in their natural habitat and need to be in the wild surrounded by their own kind. They need to learn how to survive on their own and not rely on humans to find their food. By keeping animals in captivity you are deprivi.

  • Animals are fun to look at and even when there eating.

    Animals help to let scientists to know how animals are getting enticed , and other animals like monkeys, zebras, lions, penguins, and other animals got hert and can never go back to the wild.
    Animals in zoos are sick and takeing out of there inhabit and then they put them in the zoo to keep a eye on them.

  • they should NOT

  • No, they need their freedom.

    Animals need their freedom and when they are in captivity they get limited amounts of air water and food. They also have a better chance of dying more easily. And it shouldn't be for our amusement, it probably hurts them doing the same tricks over and over again just to amuse us.

  • ANIMALS IN CAPTIVITY SAY NO

    Animals should not be kept in captivity because they need to be in their natural habitat and need to be in the wild surrounded by their own kind. They need to learn how to survive on their own and not rely on humans to find their food. By keeping animals in captivity you are depriving them of the basic instincts to kill. Although their are some good reason for keeping animals in captivity I mainly think is is bad. Animals in captivity do not get the chance to find a mate and create a family. Animals do not get the chance to have something to protect because zoos have high security and look after all the animals. ANIMALS SHOULD DEFINITELY NOT BE KEPT IN CAPTIVITY IT IS JUST PLAIN CRUEL!

  • No more captivity!

    These poor animals don't have a real home now. Thanks to animal stealing gold diggers. The only thing that kids are actually learning when they come to zoos or aquariums is that it's okay to keep animals from their family. No one knows that animals have feelings as well as humans.

  • NO, NO CAGING!!!!

    Animals have their feelings too. They are also living things. Will you like being closed in a damn cage??? No!!!! You may have safety and security in a cage, but for me, anyway, freedom is first.....Most zoo authorities claim that they keep the animals in their zoo in a very nice way. But they don't have any proof. You don't think so they have to be caged...........!!!!

  • We all have the right to be free

    It is stressful to keep animals in unnatural habitats, in small dirty cages where they are bored. They do not live long in these circumstances and can escape and harm themselves or people. When this happens it is the animal that gets shot always. Animals do have rights, a right to live in their natural habitat. Use sanctuaries and not zoos to educate people.

  • Keep animals wild!
