A big problem that arises with captive breeding programs is the high number of animals in captivity. Most centers where captive breeding takes place don’t have the resources or the space to support a larger breeding program. Also captive breeding programs have a high cost to support and properly care for each animal so they consist of few animals that can’t sustain a proper breeding population. Another major disadvantage of captive breeding programs depends on the behavior of the animals that are placed under these breeding programs. People who are in charge of these centers as well at the employees who work as care takers try their best to recreate the natural habitats of these animals but sadly that cannot be accomplished completely, so due to this change in environment, the behavior of the animals also change and it has proven to be difficult to overcome these changes.
“The animals of this world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for whites” - Alice Walker. Some of the animals that you see in zoos are not always born in captivity. They can be taken right out of the wild as well. Although zoos are fun to visit, animals should not be held in captivity because the breed can become overpopulated, they do not know how to survive on their own, and they are being abused.
When you choose to foster, you’re assisting in both traumatic issues. Firstly, any new animals dropped off in the shelter system can skip the entire stressful process of shelter life and go right to you. Secondly, taking in that animal that needs an extra boost to understand what it is like to be in a loving home environment, something that they may not have been able to receive in the shelter, may turn an “unadoptable” pet around. Animals who have been shown this kind of love and appreciation after their hardships, I believe can make the best pets around. I have personally fostered a kitten named Twizzler and it was such a rewarding experience to both myself and to her since she is now adopted.
Finding veterinary care for exotic animals is a difficult task, let alone being able to meet the dietary needs of large, carnivorous animals or massive mammals. Rachel Grant, an Animals MPDI editor wrote, "many exotic pets have specialized requirements in captivity that are beyond the scope of many pet keepers to provide" (Grant 6). Although one may believe that keeping, maintaining, and caring for an exotic animal will be like keeping a domesticated animal such as a dog or cat, the reality of the amount of care and expenses these animals require say
First wild/exotic animals can have a great learning experience for you or anyone who hasn 't had experience with a animal like that. They also can be domesticated/pre-trained in captivity to free them of their natural instincts. Do you or some of your family members have allergies to dander or a dogs coat. No worries just get a lizard or bird. Some people should not be allowed to have these kind of animals because of irresponsibility.
Communication: Giraffe Communication has proven extremely difficult for ethnologists to study as Giraffes are predominantly a silent mammal and the majority of their communication occurs on a non-verbal level. However many new studies have hypothesised that Giraffes do use more vocal communication than we realise, we just can’t hear it because they communicate over a much lower frequency then the human ear can register. Ethnologists have speculated that giraffes communicate with one another with infrasonic sounds, however further research is needed before the hypothesis can be universally accepted as true. Giraffes can vocalise with one another but they seldom do to our knowledge. Vocal behaviour has a minimal role in giraffe communication
These people would also say it is difficult to replace animals because other options are more difficult to test on. According to Ferdowsian, replacing animals in research would be difficult because the biology and genetic make up of animals is too similar to humans to be easy to replicate. Therefore, removing all animal testing would be a difficult task because testing the products on an actual organism allow researchers to mirror the outcomes of the products on humans. However, Ferdowsian continues by stating, “While it is important to acknowledge limitations to non-animal methods remain, recent developments demonstrate that these limitations should be viewed as rousing challenges rather than insurmountable obstacles.” (par. 21) She is essentially saying that while it will be difficult to remove animal testing, science should not give up on this goal just because it will prove
I think that zoos should not be allowed because they need the freedom to roam around without boundaries of zoo walls. Animals in captivity may live longer but they have the lack of the quality of life, don 't get their natural instincts to hunt, and may not have the right care that they need to be able to live a happy and healthy life. The animals in captivity may live longer but live an unhappy life due to lack of freedom due to zoo walls and other animals. According to Petakids.com “In the wild, elephants walk up to 30 miles each day, bears are active for up to 18 hours a day exploring their home ranges for up to hundreds of miles, and tigers and lions love running and climbing and will roam many miles to hunt.” This being said animals in captivity don 't live up to how they 're supposed to act and don 't let animals run free for miles and miles and zoos prevent animals from doing this. When an animal is in captivity they lose their ability to hunt for there food.
If instead of bringing in a pet to a classroom, having a class pet already there will help students calm down. Also, a psychologist who studies the bond shared between humans and their pets, named Anne Mcbride, believes animals do a lot when it comes to reducing loneliness. Mcbride can be quoted saying, “A pet can be a great companion, and age or disability should be no barrier to pet ownership. Owning a new breed or species can be viewed as an adventure, an opportunity to learn about a new type of animal and develop a relationship with a creature never before considered" (Member login. (2010, May 3).
Students would also be able to do an instructional computer game on the Associative property of addition. Students would learn and become familiar with the Order of Operations and understand that they must do the work that is in the parentheses before continuing with the remainder of the problem. Another fun activity that the students could do for independent practice is ‘Fact Family Homes’. For this activity, students would be given three numbers; 2, 5, and 7; they would practice the addition first- 2+5=7 and 5+2=7 and then the subtraction- 7-2=5 and 7-5=2. The teacher would make six of these little homes on a worksheet and have different numbers and equations for the students to solve.
Some advice carmen gave me was to go to a veterinarian office and shadow a veterinary technician. She said that her son is going to shadow a dentist for his future. She also said to me “ Personally I would watch some youtube videos on what vet technicians do because not all offices are the same”. Carmen Pearson told me during our facetime interview was that I need to think about what type of animals I would like to work with. She mentioned that she would’ve loved to work in a zoo but didn’t have the right opportunity.
The organization of Animal Friends of the Valley has a way to keeping the animal in a healthy status; they offer benefits such as vaccination clinic, spay and neuter are the most important ones for the people take their animals to do a simple checkup. If you like to adopt a pet, they will suggest the people who want to make an adoption considering making an appointment sooner because the spot filled out quickly seems the first day I went for a visit is already busy to the point they do not have a time for a
(Source A), proves that animals can learn American Sign Language (ASL), animals have to be treated with love and respect. Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives, they can do almost anything we can do. People often assume that animals are not like them but once they showed a chimpanzee learned ASL. People start to wonder how this is possible, how do the animals understand? If animals have the support from humans
Second, humans differ from chimpanzees due to differences in parental care. According to “Primate Info Net,” when chimpanzees are born the mother holds the responsibility of parental care. Chimpanzee infants and juveniles prove it is critical for their survival, and benefit from the close relationship with their mother. Some evidence shows that the chimpanzee infants or juveniles are ranked due to their mother’s status. At an early age the infants start to learn a variety of skills and achieve a large knowledge base.
