Zoos are needed and if there is a need in this world, the spot will most likely be filled without hesitation. Some zoos were not trained properly and do not treat their animals very well. Some bad zoos do not feed their animals enough and keep them in a confined cage. Although some zoos are harmful for both animals and people, many of them are good zoos and take care of their animals better than most people take care of them selves. It is amazing to be able to see such care and love are associated with zoos.
Zoos do not only keep the animals safe and breed them to make their population grow but also, let scientist and veterinarians learn more about them to help the others in the wild (zoos). Zoos are making a huge difference in the world by saving many creatures who have been critically endangered. Estimated about 21% of mammals, 12% of birds, and 33% of amphibians species have been recovered from critical to scarcely endangered (Estimated). Additionally, a consortium of Australian zoos have been campaigning to label products that
Some small zoos use local veterinarians to help with animal health problems. (Wright) Captive breeding of endangered species gives these animals a second chance at life. Animals such as; Pinta island tortoise, are extinct in the wild. But they survive in several zoos around the world. Zoos are always improving to make animals habitats a model of what it would be like if they were in the wild.
Without these animals being in zoos where they can be studied by their behavior and reactions to things, they would not be able to be helped when sick or injured. Conservation efforts have also found ways to improve because of the research they have gathered. The profits that many zoos have earned, donate a proportion to these conservation projects. Zoos also help preserve animal species that would otherwise be extinct. There are special breeding programs where zoos take these endangered animals and breed them to add them to the population.
Zoos have a mission to help rehabilitate, breed, and take in animals that are no longer able to survive on their own. Any zoo or aquarium will have a mission that involves rehabilitating the animals that come in. It is with great concern that animals are taken care of and have their health. The definition of rehabilitation is: "To restore (someone)
In the past people collected animals has a way to express themselves with the gods to be closer. Zoo show the symbol o... ... middle of paper ... ... danger too. A good reason for captivity is rehabilitation for an animal that is hurt or wounded and could be treated. Then having a second chance back out into the wild. Also by keeping endangered species from going completely instinct by figuring out genetics of an animal.
In this argumentative essay, I will be arguing the ethics of zoos and certain problems that need to be addressed that people are not aware of. Zoos are great places to take the family out for the day to have entertainment; however, problems such as captive breeding, length of life, and animal stress need to improve. Captive breeding programs are what make zoos ethical, but several problems need to be confronted. Zoos operate captive breeding programs in which they take animals from the wildlife and breed then in a scientifically controlled environment. They have saved several species from extinction such as the Red Wolf and the Przewalski Horse, and are aiding many others such as the blue-crowned laughing thrush.
The Zoo and Its Benefits Zoos bring human kind closer to wild life. Though, sometimes that means taking the animal out of its natural habitat. Some animals have lost most of their habitat and are on the verge of extinction. In this way, the zoo helps the animals rather than using them as a form of human entertainment. Zoos also allow humans to study different kinds of animals more closely.
Breeding programmes are the main function of zoos, by reproducing species for our future generations, we are conserving animals. Some may say though that we should be leaving these animals alone to live their lives, no matter if it’s a short or long one. It’s a breach of their natural rights to use them for our own purposes, and the human race has done enough for these poor animals. I personally think that the zoos breeding programmes are a bad idea they have a very low success rate and by the end of the programme the animal hasn’t got the characteristics of what the animal born in wild would have, so it’s just a waste of time. Zoos where animals are fed well and looked after properly with nice surroundings should be encouraged throughout the world and in most zoos this is the standard they go by.
Animals call Earth home, just like we do, but there are so many creatures that die because of us. When we take these animals from their homes we need to give them a good place to live at. Many of the animals we capture, are put into zoos. I know that zoos many be fun and exciting but we need to look closer as to how the animals are being treated. Today, many creatures living in zoos are not getting the things they need to live well.
