Should Animals Be Kept In Zoos?
I’ve read lots of reasons why zoos are good things, some of which are:
They aid with the conservation of endangered species.
Rare animals are given the chance of reproduction that they most likely wouldn’t get in the wild.
Scientists and people in general can learn a lot about animal habits.
I’m not against all animals being in zoos, but it’s hard for me to imagine that wild cats, elephants, giraffes and lots of others wouldn’t be far better off in protected parks.
Do you think that on balance that zoos are good or bad, and if “good” then how would you make overall changes to them?
