Are animals in captivity better off than the ones in the wild?

  • It is goods

    They raise money in captivity to help rescue more animals in the wild. When seaworlds annual paycheck come it spends most of its money on upgrading the facility and helps rescue other animals. When a animal is hurt badly in the wild they cannot heal the selves. When in the wild they may not survive and on their own if little. A dead animal is not a good animal an alive one is!

  • People help animals with broken legs and stuff so they can survive and then they release them out into the wild.

    Animals need humans so they can live and we can help things that they can't do like fixing a broken leg. Only we can do that. So I think that animals are better off because of people. We help them survive. Animals are better off because of humans. I think that you should agree.

  • I say yes

    I say yes because the animals in the zoo have more space then the ones in the zoo. The animals in the zoo can´t hunt for there food like in the wild. You can´t even hunt in the zoo! They will give you things that are already dead! How awful is that!?!? That is why i said ¨Yes¨.

  • No.... S d

  • This is obvious

    While the vast majority of non-domesticated animals do now and will continue to live in the wild, it is patently obvious that animals living in captivity (assuming conditions are not abusive or neglectful, conditions which are illegal) are better off than their brethren in their natural habitats. There's a reason that animals frequently live longer in captivity than in the wild- Natural Selection. Animals compete not only for mates, but for Survival. Barring animals captured or bred for meat or pelts, animals fare MUCH better in captivity. The forest doesn't offer veterinary medicine. The savanna doesn't provide regular water and balanced meals. We know that animals in zoos are frequently depressed, but I have seen no studies indicating the consistent and vigorous mental health of polar bears in the arctic. Why? Because captivity is where we can learn about animals under controlled circumstances. Yes, zoos ARE educational. They teach children and adults alike about animals, to love animals, that animals matter and are important. They also provide a safe way of partitioning off busybody humans well away from wild habitats, because otherwise we'd have a lot more Into the Wild incidents, resulting in animals dying as a result of human stupidity. So not only are the individual animals in captivity better off, the larger populations of wildlife and their ecosystems are better off as a result of zoos and other animal attractions.

  • Not at all.

    Wild animals are meant to be born and raised in the wild. There are many enclosures that are unfit for wild animals to live in, and poor care. Animal trainers and caretakers are killed every year because of wild animals being confined in unfamiliar spaces. It is necessary for animals to hunt and learn how to survive. If you have ever seen documentaries, for example Blackfish, that go into facilities and dig deeper into the "captive animal" industry, your eyes may be a bit more open. Animals are traded between zoos, spending months at a time in cages, unable to travel or hunt like wild animals are supposed to do. For the arguments over wild vs. Tamed animals, house pets such as dogs and cats have been evolving to live in the care of humans for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Animals still fight each other and can kill each other in captivity, as they are enclosed, they don't even have a chance to run away from attackers if provoked.

  • No, captivity is not to be preferred.

    I would say that keeping wild animals is a necessary thing because it is educational and encourages conservation of certain species. However, what is usually best is the natural way, even though an animal needs to look for food and avoid being prey. Most of them need the chance to do that.

  • Humans aren't really helping all that much

    I will be mainly talking about tigers to make my point, because in the wild, tigers can hunt freely and live in their best way, although they might not live the longest, that is natural selection and just their life cycle,
    what is actually killing them the most in the wild is humans, and that is the same for a lot of animals,
    although I believe that if the enclosure for the animal is at its optimum for their needs, and are only in there because they have maybe been taken out of the wild at a young age and are not able to be released back into the wild, then I think they should stay in a zoo or a sanctuary.
    However when an animals is confined to a zoo, it is not able to learn how to hunt, the animal does not have the skills that it needs to be the predator that it truly and genetically should be.
    Overall if humans just left all animals alone from the start, it would all be much nicer, there would be less attacks because humans will be in their area and other animals in theirs, its just the food chain and how life needs to be.
    Cheers for reading.

  • Just because they can

    They need to be in the wild they are wild and animals and wild animals need to be in the wild. It makes sense wild animals should be in the wild and not in captivity. What would you call and lion in a zoo because you cant call it wild.

  • No because tehre animals thats where they where born and that there habite

  • I would say NO

    Animals in the wild should be kept there. If predators were to be in captivity their hunting instincts would null. They would only get raw meat. If prey were to be in captvity they would not have to worry about protecting themselves from prey. Also both predators and prey would be cramped in their territory sayin it is small.

  • Need to be in zoos

  • No they are not better off

    Animals are much better in the wild because like humans they have a natural place to be and putting them in captivity is wrong especially for experimentation because you can study them just as well if you were to tag them and let them rome free but you know others think what they want to

  • Animals are meant to be in wild

    Animals should be able to live own life in wild without being confined to tiny space think about tilikum from sea word, I think animals should be be viewed in natural habitat not in small cages! I hope in the future there will be no such thing as a zoo or seaworld!

  • Its not nice!

    WE are always taught to be nice to people we meet. Animals are just like us but they have A Lot more fur. Its not fair for them to live in cages while we take over their habitats.SO STOP BEING POOP HEADS AND LEAVE THEM ALONE. Thank you so much!
