• Zoos should be banned.

    A rhino died a few weeks ago at a zoo and the zookeepers don't cause they get a new one. I want to do something about this because I don't like it and it doesn't make sense. We should make zoos into care centers because we could put hurt animals in there and let them free when their better.

  • Yes, zoos should be banned

    Zoos should be banned because zoos could harm animals. You never know if a zoo is a harmful one or a helpful one. Animals could also get zoochoisis. A type of disease that will harm animals because they have stayed in zoos for a long time. Animals get crazy and they create un natural things on their body.

  • Zoos are just prisons for animals

    The zoo is an outdated concept, it commoditizes animals for entertainment. Zoos do not educate our children, nor do they protect our environment, but they are cruel institutions for the animals imprisoned within them. At this moment, in our human history, do we want to pour concrete over native grasses, and build enclosures for wild creatures, or do we want to think innovatively, and protect what little remains of our real California, our heritage for future generations.


  • Yes they should be.

    Animals are taken from he wild. Animals live in cages. They should be band because, an investigator filmed sick animals. Left dead animals to rot on the zoo floor. There is not enough room for the animals in the zoos. The animals suffer in zoos (not enough food). So sad.

  • Their Natural Habitat

    Animals are mostly forced to be in zoos, just for peoples entertainment, it is unfair that the animals have to stay in captivity while they probably much prefer their natural habitat and in the wild then having to stay in one place and not being able to roam around for example birds.

  • Zoos be banned!!!

    Zoos does not provide enough space for animals. They are shut in a small cage.
    Zoos kill surplus animals. 7,500 to 20,000 animals are killed at once in European zoos.
    Finally, zoos does not educate the visitors. Do you see a explanation in signs of zoos?
    Zoos should be banned!!!

  • They can die from not being in there natural habitat

    I think that zoos should be baned because the things are not in there natural habitat. Also they can get home sick and die .Also herambe got killed from a zoo and that was not his fault it was.The person who killed and fell ins fault so that is why i say yes

  • Why should zoos be banned?

    They should. One reason is that not that long ago, there was a gorilla in a zoo named Ivan. He was kidnapped from his jungle home, put in a crate and was shipped of to a zoo along with his sister, but she never made it out of the box alive. At the zoo, Ivan was treated terrible along with all the other animals. My other reason is that people only use zoos for entertainment. When I was in first grade we went on a trip to the zoo. The teachers told us that we were there to see the animals because they were NOT LOCAL ANIMALS WE WOULD SEE EVERYDAY!

  • Zoos must be banned.

    Zoos do not educate us. They show the selfishness of people. People keep animals in cage for amusement and earning money. Animals want to wander around in jungle and have food anytime they want. Birds in the zoo also want to fly in an open sky. This freedom is not given to them in zoo.

  • Yes they should be banned

    Yes they should be banned because what is one day they get lose.And at one zoo a gorilla died because a 4 year old fell into his pit they should have left him in the wild and that would not have happened he could have been still living that is why :

  • Zoos should not be banned!

    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

  • Zoos are saving animals

    I agree that zoos should not be shut down because they are helping endangered animals, I know a lot of people say it but its the truth, there is so much pollution that sea animals are dying and there is scientific proof about it. Only 111 dolphins are left. Companies carelessly are dumping toxins, and so much waste that our amazing animals are vanishing. If it weren't for our zoos animals would be dying one after another. Its like a purge or something and all you will be hearing on the news is, another humpback whale died, or another great white was found washed up on shore. So we need to think twice about closing zoos.

  • Zoos Are Beneficial

    I do not believe zoos should be banned. I think there is a small fraction of the population that finds fault with zoos, but in reality they provide an excellent service to the communities that they are located in. Zoos can be a fun and educational outing for children or adults. I do not believe they should banned based on a small minority finding fault with them.

  • No,zoos should not be banned.

    There are several valid reasons why zoos should not be banned.First of all they provide breeding opportunities for animals that are endangered.They also provide chances for city visitors to have experiences they might not have if it was not for the zoos and the great educators that are there to provide information.

  • No, zoos should not be banned.

    I believe that zoos should not be banned as long as the animals are treated humanely. They should not be kept in cages and should live in areas that are like their natural habitats. Most zoos today strive to do that. Zoos are important for breeding and ensuring that some animals don't get extinct.

  • Zoos have lots of benefits and are educational.

    Zoos give people a chance to learn and have close encounters with them. Students from schools have the opportunity to learn and study them as well as get involved in saving endangered species this gives them a great knowledge. There are also more than a few benefits for Zoos. For example: Zoos Victoria are committed to ensuring the no Victorian terrestrial vertebrate species goes extinct. This is just on many many good Zoos out there that are actually doing the right thing. Many people who want Zoos banned are only concentrating on the bad Zoos and don't realise that some are doing the right thing. By banning Zoos your also banning Zoos that are committed to fighting extinction and saving our wildlife.

  • Zoos should be banned.

    Put yourself in the animals’ situation, and then see if it sounds fair to you. You’re taken away from your home, friends, and family. Taken to a place you’ve never seen before where you’re kept in a prison like environment, the temperature and food is different to what it used to be and you have to make loads of new adaptations. You’re expected to have babies with strangers that you’ve never met before, that are being imprisoned against their will too. You’re losing your survival instinct so you couldn’t survive where your home was originally. Therefore, you have to be stuck behind thick metal bars for the rest of your life now. All this torture just so other creatures can poke and prod you, bother you, take photos of you, point at you, laugh at you and tease you. And we do tease and torment the animals in zoos and as soon as their survival instinct kicks in and they bite or attack adults or children, they are thought of as dangerous and shot. They have feelings just like us! Zoos may seem great to go and visit for a few hours. You see some interesting things, then you’re free to go home. Back where you feel cozy and warm. Those animals can’t go home at the end of the day, not like us. They are stuck there forever against the will!

  • No fundamental differences between zoos and pets

    If you support the ban of zoos you would need to support the ban of pets, they are basically the same thing. I am a proud and loving owner of 3 cats, but when you think of it, they are no different than zoo animals, they are kept in a small apartment, having to eat the same thing everyday, deprived of their natural instinct and freedom to hunt, to mate, to socialize, etc. If we are not banning pets then we are not banning zoos.

  • It helps protect

    Animals are protected by zooos and if they are instantley released they cant femd for them selfs and what if the animal and their possible mate are seperated they cant reproduze and the animal might like where they live and if they release the animal a carnivor might attack like in china
