Do Zoos and Aquariums Do More Harm
Than Good

Do you enjoy going to the zoo? How about the Aquarium? Most people would say yes, but do you ever think how the animals feel? Do you ever wonder if a lion likes to live in a cage and has a scheduled time to eat? Research shows that: zoos can’t provide sufficient space; animals suffer in zoos, and animals die prematurely in zoos, surplus amounts of animals die and many other things. Zoos claim that when the animals mate and have babies they will send them back out into nature but they keep them and sometimes send them to circuses and other zoos. Aquariums are no different; they keep aquatic animals in a small glass box. Have you ever wondered why your fish died, it could have been lack of food or maybe you didn’t clean out their filter. That can happen in a big tank also. Research shows that if an animal is set into the wild from a zoo it may not survive yet wait to be fed. Although animals are harmed in zoos and aquariums it is fun to go to the zoos once in a while because I know that I will not be going into the wild to see a lion or wildebeest. It is nice to see how majestic these animals are and how each animal has a unique way it was made or the beautiful patterns on the animal.
In conclusion I just want to say next time you go to the zoo imagine it was you trapped behind the cage. Imagine others would come to the zoo once they see you take a few photographs get bored and move on to the next attraction.

    Why Zoos Matter There are many things to consider regarding whether or not an animal will benefit from living in a zoo or nature park. The most important aspect to consider is an animal’s health and well-being. Of course there will be some differences when man tries to recreate nature, but ultimately, if these controlled environments prevent animals from going extinct in the wild, the benefits outweigh the negative effects. In the past, man has brutally hunted down animals without concern for…

    I think that we should have laws because without laws there would be a lot of chaos going around and everything would go off hand. There would be a lot of murders going around and most might be the innocent people being killed. It would not really be fair on them and the murderer would need to be punished for this or whoever was part of the crime. I also think that people would not have peace if there were no laws because there would perhaps be a lot of riots and wars going around. People may also…
