In life some feel the need to prove something to others. That they are better, stronger, or even more intelligent. Whatever the case may be people will go through extreme measures to prove themselves. But who do we really need to prove anything to? Is it our parents? Friends? Enemies? Or is it even ourselves? Chris McCandless, deceased adventurer from “Into the Wild”, underwent many obstacles that seems highly ridiculous. Certain physical and mental challenges that could have prevented, Chris decided to do defying the chance of death or severe injury. But the real misunderstanding is who was Chris proving his manhood too?
The Alaskan Bush is one of the hardest places to survive without any assistance, supplies, skills, and little food. Jon Krakauer explains in his biography, Into The Wild, how Christopher McCandless ventured into the Alaskan Bush and ultimately perished due to lack of preparation and hubris. McCandless was an intelligent young man who made a few mistakes but overall Krakauer believed that McCandless was not an ignorant adrenalin junkie who had no respect for the land. Krakauer chose to write this biography because he too had the strong desire to discover and explore as he also ventured into the Alaskan Bush when he was a young man, but he survived unlike McCandless. Krakauer’s argument was convincing because he gives credible evidence that McCandless was not foolish like many critics say he was.
On July 20th, 1874, the first zoo in the united states was opened in Philadelphia. When opened it featured animals in cages with steel bars and cement flooring. Now one-hundred and forty-three years later it’s a sprawling zoo that focuses on educating its attendees and providing amazing enclosures for the animals. The Philadelphia zoo now features a meerkat maze which gives the meerkats a large funnel system to run around simulating their natural habitat; it also features the Big Cat Crossing which allows animals such as the tigers, lions, pumas, and jaguars to travel across walkways providing much needed free space to prowl (About). Zoos are much needed education centers and research locations to study animals and how to better their lives in and outside captivity. Animals should be held in captivity such as natural reservations, zoos, and wildlife parks.
Some may argue that zoos in general are inhuman. I may agree with a portion of that statement, but the truth of the matter is the Woodland Park Zoo is not your typical zoo. Aside from being in the heart of one of the most visited cities in the country, Seattle. The zoo is a no profit origination that takes any and all proceeds the zoo makes and puts it back in the zoo. So every dollar the zoo makes it helps benefit the animals of the zoo.

Imagine all the trouble of owning a puppy, owning a tiger is much worse. Imagine the expenses of that tiger and the dangers and hazards of owning that tiger. Do you really think it’s a good idea to get that tiger? No, it’s not. It’s a lot of work, and it’s also extremely dangerous. Exotic animals are not good to buy and have. If you buy that cute tiger, it will eventually grow up and not be so cute as it used to be and it will also be dangerous and strong. It’s also a wild animal and it’s very unpredictable, and there are many diseases you can catch from that tiger, and there are many dangers of having that tiger that you can’t forget.

Zoos and aquariums have been around since the times of the Romans and the Egyptians. Although the zoos and aquariums have adapted since those times, they still have the same concept behind them. Although zoos and aquariums have been around for ages, over the decades, controversy about these two places have grown. Although most people don’t think anything of it, there is a huge debate as to whether zoos and aquariums are acceptable or not.

Some of the issues they bring up about these places is that it is inhumane to keep these animals
The Chicxulub impact, known as the Chicxulub crater, was formed by an asteroid that collided with the Yucatan Peninsula located in Mexico 65.5 million years ago. The asteroid was said to hold the same energy as 100 million atomic bombs which precipitated an incident that destroyed the dinosaurs and nearly all life on Earth, leaving the atmosphere inhabitable for centuries.
Joseph, I liked your post as it was succinct, and that is this post’s biggest strength. You get right to the point and state your points without beating around the bush. The greatest weakness I see is the lack of supporting references. While I agree with your assessment that natural
As an enthusiast of science in general, I do truly enjoy subject's biology, chemistry or even physical science. I remember every year looking forward to which science class I was assigned in grade school and the labs we would do. However, there was one subject that would upset me by
Zoos and can be places where the imagination and creativity of people, especially children, can come alive and inspire them to tread avenues that they never expected they would take. In the early years of my childhood, I spent many hours observing and studying wild animal exhibits in zoos in Seattle Washington. I would imagine myself in my dream world as zoo keeper or a veterinarian helping animals and knowing them each by name. As I studied and let my imagination run free; I knew that someday, somehow, I would be involved in the care of animals. Without the establishment of zoos and, I would have never realized my dreams and perused a career in biology and animal care. Animals exhibits are places of wonder and study for scientists and everyday people, without them, most people would never have to opportunity to see even a quarter of the life that populates their globe.
The snow leopard is absolutely stunning, majestic, and beautiful, but this creature is also endangered. The snow leopard is known for its luxurious fur coat with rings of black and dark brown spots. Also, their basic way of life is intriguing. Additionally, snow leopards are found in Central and South Asia, which adds to how their lives are intriguing. Why would someone want to hunt and kill such an ethereal creature?
Some people assume that just because animals cannot speak that they cannot feel pain. It is not okay to torture living beings that have their own thoughts and breathe the exact same air us humans breathe. It is unjust and selfish to stand by and take no action while everyday hundreds if not thousands of innocent animals die without reason. No matter how much fur or how many limbs the creature has; it should be treated as equal as a person. A heart beat is a heartbeat regardless of the body it’s in.
