In recent years, there is frequent coverage of tragedies taking place in zoos and controversies of the significance of zoos are never-ending. Admittedly, visiting zoos, human beings, especially children, can have the opportunity to get closer to wild creatures, which presumably equips them with the knowledge of animals and teaches them about sympathy. But with the business of displaying animals as to attract customers booming, more and more problems have come to light. Despite the economic benefits a zoo brings about, human beings had best to phase out zoos for entertaining purposes since such zoos will result in the abnormal behavior of captive animals, endanger the safety of both animals and visitors, and probably have little effect on educational
“Most zoos cater to what people want to see,” as referenced in the text of “Do Animals Lose in Zoos?”. People want to see something cute and charismatic, large and strong, big and bold, to be on display in zoos. Baby animals are another attraction. Sometimes in order to get more business, zoos will set up innate breeding programs. Consequently, these programs lead to a surplus of animals.
Zoos may not be the perfect solution, but watching animals disappear is not the right answer either. Future generations, perhaps, will be more resourceful than us, and find better solutions. With hope, they will foster global collaboration and species management plans, hence reducing the demand for endangered animals and their products. Furthermore, connecting with nature so that it becomes a valuable part of our lives. You may ask yourself: why not let them go extinct?
According to a Biological Diversity website (https://www.biologicaldiversity.org/campaigns/ocean_plastics/), the author states that “Thousands of seabirds and sea turtles, seals and other marine mammals are killed each year after ingesting plastic.” People keep littering and that littering is killing precious marine life. The level of
Should we be keeping animals in zoos? How does that really help the animal? Can we keep them safe? As referenced in the text “The Impact Of Animal Protection,” human activities have been destroying animal habitats to make roads or more buildings, even hunting for sport! So to protect these animals, we’ve created zoos and nature parks for the animals, but are both of them really benefiting the animals?
They do many activities like a scavenger hunt or a zoo school. They learn a lot about the animals. Lastly, the main and important reason is that zoos stop animals from going extinct. They do this by giving the animals a open area to breed which saved many animal species. So think about it, whether animals are being treated poorly or not.
Once an alligator “closes it jaw on a limb the force is so great that getting the alligator to open its mouth again is virtually impossible “ (Strawn 43 ). The adult reptile “has small legs and webbed feet that are designed for “propulsion and maneuvering but not for attack” (Visiting the Heart of Alligator Country) However the “swipe of a gators tail can knock a person into the water when it is most agile, powerful and destructful” (Strawn 43). Not to men-tion an alligators tail is what gives it it’s speed of up to approximately 20 miles per hour in water but then becomes a slower awkward giant on land. This sounds to be very similar to that of some of the dinosaurs from many years
Sea otters have couple of normal predators in the ocean because of their vast size. Those sea otters that live further south are essentially gone after by the considerable white shark and those sea otters that occupy more northern areas of the Pacific, are gone after by executioner whales. People are one of the sea
The topic is "Discuss some of the arguments for and against the conservation of animals in zoos". This is an important topic, but it should not be taken lightly because of its complexity. Many peoples know that opinions about this type of question can be diverse and numerous, because for a large part of people on earth the arguments are against, in the sense to enclose or keep animals in the zoos is a kind of Imprisonment And that anyway these animals are overdue and afterwards for the other party, having them in the zoos is a good idea, somehow a chance to see, to have access to rare animals such as bears, the Tigers. .. that one is accustomed to seeing on television more closely and to know more about their way of life. Method For the development of this questionnaire, I
Zoos can help us learn about animals and help endangered species grow in population. Without zoos how will we ever be able to get close to a wild animal and learn about their natural habitat? If a animal is about to go extinct then how could we help them while they are being hunted? A zoo is a great way to hold endangered species so they don’t go extinct, and you can adopt a animal and give the zoo money to help them.All of this show that zoos should not be closed. Many people may still disagree but they should agree because zoos can save a animals
One by one, the babies, who are supposed to stay with their mother their entire life, are picked out and kidnaped from the pod. When the nets are dropped to let the rest of the whales go, sometimes there will be injured or even dead whales (Blackfish. Dir. Gabriela Cowperthwaite). John Crowe, a man who was on a whale capturing trip, talked in a documentary about how his crew was instructed to cut open the dead whales, fill them with rocks, and sink them to the bottom of the ocean.
Lars Gustafson 11/4/15 GEOG 304 Research Paper: Shark Finning With an alarming one in four shark species endangered across the globe, we have come to a breaking point where our oceans ecosystems could suffer permanent damage if the practice of shark finning in the oceans off of Eastern Asia continues as shark population’s plummet. According to www.stopsharkfinning.net, tens of millions of sharks are killed every single year just for the fins that are the main ingredient in shark fin soup. Shark fins are harvested to feed the growing demand for shark fin soup that is an Asian delicacy food. When the sharks are finned they are usually thrown back into the water and left to drown slowly. Sharks rely on their fins to swim and allow water to
In conclusion, manatees are becoming extinct because people are populating the water that manatees live in which is causing them to die. Manatees are being struck by boats when people drive through shallow water too fast, because they cannot see them in time to move out of the way. Manatees are also becoming extinct because they are eating toxic algae that is produced from the
Graph A represents recordings of a transient killer whale, whereas Graph B represents recordings of a resident killer whale. Both graphs show the changes in each whale type; one documents a drastic change over the course of four hours, while the other one—over the same amount of time—shows a more consistent pattern. A transient killer whale is represented in the first graph because, although a majority of the data shows the orca keeping to the higher points of the ocean, there are still points in which the orca dives to the bottom depth of the ocean, which would make sense due to the fact that this particular type of orca is known for preying on marine mammals. Based on the information in the chart, it could easily be assumed that they dwell closer to the top of the water, but when they are ready to feed, they dive to the
One of the whales, named Tilikum, who recently died in January of 2017, was kidnapped from the ocean at the young age of two. A man named Ted Griffin, who helped capture the whales, killed a mother whale in front of her daughter, to later be named Shamu; the first performing whale at SeaWorld. Since then, SeaWorld no longer takes orcas from the sea, because they have enough whales at SeaWorld to birth their own. This just adds to the fact that SeaWorld is
