We believe that zoos should not be banned for many reasons. First, if we ban zoos, we can't see and learn about the wonderful animals of the world. Also, zoos provide a wonderful, cheap place for children to learn about animals from all over the world. For example, it is too expensive for people to travel the world to see these exotic animals. Another reason is that zoos help endangered animals from extinction. For example, the zoos can raise an endangered wild bear and then release them to the wild. Lastly, zoos can provide medicine and food for animals that would otherwise die out due to an ever-shrinking world.
From the brilliant students of GT3-STN class!!!!!! (Seoul, Korea)
My Opinion On Why Zoos Should NOT Be Banned:
They are educational for children (to see their habitats and behavior).
Entertaining - Days out - Visits.
Their Safety (away from hunters)
They get treat properly with the correct food and habitat.
They wont become extinct because they can keep reproducing.
People realise how remarkable they are and help saving them.
If an animal has an illness they can get treat by a vet in a zoo, not in the wild.
As an education facility to bring wild animals not normally seen by most
people to a central secured park for everyone to enjoy.
Many zoos run breeding programmes to increase numbers of endangered
animals, not only in captiviy put also in the wild, as many zoos run
release programmes to introduce species back into the wild.
Some animals find it hard to breed and therefore zoos use IVF treatment with endangered animals.
Zoos allow us to see animals we would never otherwise see because we don't have the money for world travel, certain animals are too reclusive to chance upon, certain animals are too dangerous to get anywhere near in the wild, etc.
Animals we see, we are more likely to appreciate and want to help. Many zoos educate visitors on the animals as well as how they can help conservation efforts. Many zoos also have, or contribute to, programs for helping these animals, so part of the money you pay to get in (admission) goes to help animal conservation efforts.
Some animals are very close to extinction and animal experts may be able to help keep these species alive by helping them with their breeding.
1. It could be a habitat for extinct animals.
2. It provides entertainment especially to kids.
3. It provides education.
4. It can generate income to the city where it is located.
5. It may become a tourist attraction.
Because if they close them down the animals that have been bread in the zoo would not cope in the wild
If zoos get banned, children wont get the chance to see the animals and their natural habitatss
Zoos help animals too keep alive for further in the future
Because if they did get extinct we would never see them again and zoos can keep them alive
They are a great place for people to gain a first hand appreciation for the divine beauty of nature. With that appreciation people will be more inclined to care for our beautiful Earth. Also zoos can provide medicine and food to animals that would die because they were in the wild and that would bring that species on step close to extinction x
Zoos should not be banned because they help in programs that rescue animals
Because they are a vital place for education
Zoo's should not be banned because if an animal has an illness the vets can help it
I think zoos shouldn't be ban because it is cheaper to go there and the zooskeeper provides good food for the animals. The fee people pay for entry to go in the zoo, are mostly used to provide food and medicial attention for the animals. And they will help them to breed so the animals increse in population and don't become extinct. Thank you. I know it's boring. And goodnight. Laters bro! By Natalie Prapasiri Nitchin.
Its educational helps people learn how they live !
Helps endangered animals !
Helps animals breed (reproduct) shows people how they develop and the zoo can give the animals treatment if needed !
Zoos should NOT be banned because zoos are a good place to house endangered species, help them breed, and help move toward their reintroduction back into their natural habitat.
I like zoos but I feel sorry for the animals...! :) x x But Zoos are also really helpful as they prevent animals from being endangered and educate the further generation about the animals...
Yeah only 5 reasons. I have over 10 why they shouldn't.
Animals are living things just like humans. How would you feel if you were locked up in a cage waiting for your next meal. Wouldn't you feel depressed?
Animals should be free after all we are all mammals and why do we humans get to be more free than them?
I think it is cruel to have animals in a zoo. They were doing alright in the wild before we came along and took them out of it for money and public viewing. Every animal in the zoo isn't going extinct. If they want to put them in the zoo and tourture them take the endangered ones.
Zoo's AREN'T educational because they aren't seeing the traits of a wild animal but the traits of a restless animal.
1. They don't live as long.
2. They aren't educational.
3. They don't have enough room as they would in the wild.
4. You think animals are cared for well they only look how the animal is doing if it's pregnant or when it's feeding time.
5. Gorilla's for instance eat their own fecies from being restless and dolphins swim 50 miles in the ocean equivalent to 500 laps around their pool.
6. They react aggressively which is why zoo keepers are attacked.
7. Zoo's don't accept animals that won't attract a crowd. (Meaning if they won't get money from the animal they don't take it.)
8. They get bored.
9. If an animal escapes and hurts someone, they kill the animal even though the animal shouldn't have been there in the first place.
10. Elephants don't have nearly enough room in zoo's and pace back and forth which can cause vommiting.
11. Animals should be free, since it's a free country. :)
12. You think research is a good thing about the animal? Maybe writing things down, but most of them go through a lot of treatment and pain.
13. The animals are only there for our entertainment.
I know I can't stop it. Either can anyone else. But it doesn't make it right. All the billions of animals that are in zoo's now wouldn't survive in the wild since they've been in captivity for so long. Would you like to be locked up in a cage and have people stare at you? Think again.
Because animals are nature they belong here, and if we close down zoos we wont be able to see any of the animals. We can,t go to the jungle to and see animals can't we.there are more children's who wants to see the animals but they can't cause the zoos are all closed down.
Zoos are the only place that we can see the animals.
Pleases don't close the zoos down. Even I am saying that I LOVE the zoos I LOVE the animals.THANK YOU!
Its rather obvious that zoos are meant to breed endangered animals
Zoos should not be banned because the help save endangered species ands they r good I love them
Zoos are useful because they take part in conservations projects witch help animals reproduce and grow in number.
They help endangered animals
They teach us about animals
They have breeding and study programmers.
Zoos shouldnt be banned because they help endangered species , like pandas ..... , carry on living by breeding them , and they also keep them safe from danger in the wild.
Because if children want to do research on a certain type of animal
they can't go into the jungle and research they would go to a zoo
Because they are a good thing and when your kids get bored they might want to goo there !! :)
Engenderment of care and interest in the environment
If they were banned the animals would have to be shot in many cases
I don't tinki bannin zoos is a gd idea coz I luv it and dats all reli x
I think zoos should not be banned as they prove to be a vital place for education, there also endagered species,
I agree it is not fair that they are kept inside zoos and not let allowed in the wild but if they were always in the wild we would never get to see them.
Zoos are good because they are entertaining, educational,and not too far away,zoos also keep animals safe and help them breed so they increase in population and don't become extinct
Because they are taking animals that are almost extinct OUT of the wild and breeding them IN the zoos and then after they have bred them, they release them all into the wild, please don't ban zoos :( THANKYOU AND GOODNIGHT!!!!!
Because in the school holidays and you have children they might get bored so you could take your children to go and see them !!
Zoos shouldnt be banned because
I can't be botherd typing up all the reasons. Xx
I don't think banning zoos is good idea. Zoos help animal from extinction ( breed them and then they're mature, release them into wildlife) and good for education ( everybody can see animal's life and habitat).
Because the zoo mayors told the silly government that if they banned their zoo, the silly-billy henchman would rip their ickle little arms out of their cute little shoulder bones.
I :) zoos and I just fink der amazing :)
Be coz ppl can see what animals are really like
Because you wont learn about em and how hey reproduce nd every thing else about em
Becouse its fun for family
Because animals are adorable
Zoos should be band because some zoos only give animals 1 metre space and some zoos keep the animal house dirty with out cleaning...
Zoo's should be banned because animals cannot react in there natural way.
Animals don't get looked after well in zoos.
They do not live in Thier natural habitat
some zoos have awful conditions which will harm the animal life even worser.
Animals should stay in their habitats because they wernt born to be on display to people or entertainment, there are meant to be out in the wild .
