thanks to David Fulton Publishers Do we still need zoos? Zoos were originally set up so that people could see and learn about wild animals from distant lands. As more and more people became city-dwellers, never seeing animals in the wild, zoos began to house local creatures too. However, in todays world, are zoos really necessary? Since people can now see any sort of wild animal in its natural habitat, simply by tuning into a TV programme or buying a video, some animal rights activists claim that zoos are out of date. They argue that it is cruel to capture animals, transport them long distances, and then keep them caged up simply for the entertainment of human beings. Captive animals often develop zoochosis abnormal behaviour like rocking or swaying which indicates they are bored and unhappy in their prison-like conditions. On the other hand, there is a huge difference between watching an animal on screen and seeing it in real life. It could be argued that visiting a zoo is educational, often increasing peoples concern for wildlife and conservation, which is of great importance in today's developing and often overdeveloped world. Indeed, sometimes the only way to save an endangered species may be to arrange for it to be breed in captivity. Behind the scenes, zoos also provide scientists with opportunities to research into animal behaviour: modern zoos can therefore be much better planned than old-fashioned ones, providing animals

with carefully designed enclosures appropriate to their needs. It seems then, that there are still arguments for retaining zoos. These should, however, be carefully planned with the animals welfare in mind: in the modern world, there is no excuse for keeping animals in cramped or cruel Skeleton conditions. Against zoos Dont need anymore * originally for people to see animals * TV not as good as real life

now have TV, video catch, transport, cage Cruel For zoos * * Conservation zoochosis just for entertainment Not cruel *

zoos educational increase peoples interest in animals endangered species breed in zoos scientists can research in zoos well planned enclosures Text
