Zoos: Are zoos a poor means to protecting endangered species?

  • The species could turn into the Thylacine.

    I used the Thylacine in another debate. The "last" Thylacine died of neglect!!! Also red wolves are extremely endangered. When I was little I went to a zoo with my mom and went to see red wolves. Honestly the wolves looked so sad to be deprived of freedom. I even cried and asked my mom if there was anything we could do to get the poor animals out of the zoo. No more stinkin' zoos people!!!!!!!!!

  • They bad -animals are suffer

    They always suffer in zoos. They want freedom,and they are equal to us. Why treat them like they are wild? Just let them go free. Besides, when they are let go they don't have the instincts to survive. They should not suffer this much. They already suffer way too much.

  • They don't do good

    If you keep a species in a zoo and help it raise in number than what would they do when they got out? They would become endangered again due to habitat reduction or more predators and less amount of instincts and just get pampered or without any need to leave.

  • They do good

    Zoos do a substantial amount of good for animal species, and there are a few species that only exist in captivity precisely because people have destroyed them or their habitat. Zoos mean specifically scientific zoos - not the glorified slaughterhouses and locations of massive abuse found in many parts of the world.

  • Zoos Don't Protect Species

    Zoos are a poor means of protecting endangered species these days. Unfortunately, zoos don't always take proper care of animals. They rarely provide animals with ample and appropriate environments, and large, open conservatories are a better option. Therefore, we should swtich to conservatories and get rid of zoos these days.

  • Not Their Intention

    I do not believe that zoos specifically seek out the protection of endangered species. While each zoo has a variety of animals, only some of them endangered. I believe it nice, for people's knowledge, to have these animals distributed throughout the world so they can viewed, however I don't think it directly protects endangered species.

  • They have animal cruelty

  • Zoos are not a poor means to protecting endangered species.

    Zoos are a good way of protecting endangered species of animals. There have been several cases with the work of zoos has helped endangered species increase in number. For example, the giant pandas of China have received a great deal of help because of the work of naturalists in zoos.

  • Zoos are a fine place for endangered species.

    What is the point in saving an endangered species if all you are going to do with it is hoard it where no one can see it? If the species is truly dying then people will likely want to see it, which will bring in funds to help save the species.

  • No, zoos can be invaluable in preserving endangered species.

    While zoos have gotten a bad reputation for how they house animals, many are improving and providing more natural environments for them. They're also working to conserve endangered species, and some have release programs, as well. While there's no easy answer for how to preserve species that are in danger of becoming extinct, zoos are one of our only ways, at the moment, to help ensure that some species will have a chance at survival.

  • The Majority of Zoos Do a Great Job

    Most Zoos spend a great deal of their income to the conservation of endangered species. For example, the Henry Doorly Zoo developed a way to regrow coral reefs. They are able to help save countless species of fish from loss of habitat due too pollution and bleaching. Zoos are priceless for the protection of endangered animals.
