First of all, animals should not be held in captivity in big cages because they are living creatures and they need to be free. According to a recent research, animals in zoos live less than those that live in the wild. Moreover an enormous amount of money is needed for the animals care, thus sometimes zoos don’t make any profit at all, and since a zoo is a business...the less money they have the less care they can offer the animals. Another point is that some animals lose their natural instinctive attributes. For example, animals such as lions need to hunt; however in zoos they don’t have this choice.
Nowadays these cute creatures have been unexpectedly declining in population because of the many challenges in which they have to adapt. Many of these challenges like having to live close to human communities and devouring cattle and sheep, running away from poachers and hunters, starving from food shortage ad even having difficulty to find a mate is caused by humans and their actions. Many of these challenges are brought by specifically by urbanization and human growing population. Urbanization requires many homes to be built, farms to be enlarged for agriculture to feed the human population. Therefore, deforestation sabotages habitat loss, insufficient food for the jaguars and other carnivores.
No matter how vast and naturalistic their habitat is, they are still trapped in. Not only gorillas, but every single animal in a zoo have these advantages and this disadvantage. What these creatures think of this deal, we may never know, but we do know what keeping animals in zoos can do for us and for them. Despite the frequent signs in the reptile houses that state, “Please do not knock on the glass”, people often do just that. The mammals and birds constantly have to deal with the ruckus of goggle-eyed children and scolding parents.
Assignment-The role of zoos, botanical gardens and seed banks in the conservation of endangered species. If a species is endangered then breeding in captivity may be a sensible option in case the species becomes rarer or extinct in the world. It may be possible to release captive- bred species immediately to boost the wild population or in the future if it isn’t appropriate. In the past, zoos were mainly for the purpose of public enjoyment and education because the public viewing of zoos increases their quality of life. As large numbers of the species have become rarer in the wild, many zoos have taken on the additional role of building up numbers through captive breeding programmes and not just educating the public.
Terrance Holley Mrs. Bailey English 1 18 February 2013 The Amazingly Suspicious Zoo Has the question ever been asked how much do zoo animals get paid? They probably do not make one red cent. It is a shame because they do a good job of keeping visitors entertained. The entire zoo experience is very amazing and at times suspicious. The interaction between the kids, the animals, and the landscaping makes coming to the zoo very exciting.

There are several reasons why adopting from an animal shelter has more merit than simply buying a dog. One of these reasons is that you will save a life, as pets are euthanized, they have a time limit to being in a shelter, adopting one puts a stop to that timer as there will be more room in the shelter, albeit not for long. Another reason is that you will get as healthy a pet as one that you buy. There seems to be a misconception with people about animal shelters. Many people think that the animals there are all abused and emaciated, but they aren’t.
I. Reasons why one should adopt a pet instead 1. You will save a life “Staff members sometimes…make…decisions to euthanize animals who haven’t been adopted” meaning that they put the animals to sleep (Humane Society of the United States, 2011) By adopting, you will be saving two lives; the life of the animal you are adopting and the life of another wandering animal. Animal shelters are usually overcrowded, so when an animal is adopted, there will be room for the shelter to take in another animal. Transition: Not only that… 2.
“Researchers concluded that the current animal food industry is quite simply unacceptable due to its effects on humans, the environment, and animals raised for food. Their report came at a time when not only American but world-wide demand for animal products, especially meat, have risen to their highest point yet.”(Pluhar, 2010) Animals are housed in small cages or pens instead of in a barn or
