Firstly I will start of with Gorilla. In gorilla we meet this little girl called Hanna. She seeks out love and attention from her father who is always busy working. The father is always illustrated in the dark, with faded colors during the story. It’s easy to see that he
Many people look up cute pictures of koalas. Some koalas are actually in television shows! Many kids have stuffed animals of koalas, but they don’t know that they are endangered. If a koala lives near your area make sure to plant some food trees. It doesn’t matter what type of tree you plant.
Many people have memories of visiting The Zoo as a child. Watching the gorillas, tigers and many other animals was a long awaited thrill. Feeding the giraffes caused one to jump up and down with excitement; now, picture all this suddenly disappearing. What if all this thrill and excitement were to be confined to just an image searched on the Internet, just because such animals became extinct? Unfortunately, this picture might not be far from becoming our reality.
Although “Untitled” by Tupac Shakur and “Thoughts in a Zoo” by Countee Cullen are both about being in captivity, the poems deal with the idea of being in captivity in extremely different perspectives through the use of similes. “Thoughts in a Zoo” deals with being trapped in society by comparing zoo animals to African Americans using similes. For example, the narrator compares activities similar between African American and mole through the use of similes when the narrator said “Some delve down like the mole far underground”(line 13). In this quote, Cullen uses a simile to compare how African Americans and moles react to being in captivity. “Delve down” denotes “reach inside a receptacle and search for something.” Conversely, “Delve down”connotes darkness because it describes African Americans going deep in the unknown because they don’t want the attention given by society.
The issue of keeping exotic pets such as a tiger or chimpanzee has been a contentious topic with animal activists up in arms over the issue. All of us love pets and we limit it to regular pets while some of us have extended their love of pets to animals like chimpanzees and tigers. Before considering taking a chimpanzee or a tiger as a pet, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of keeping them as pets. According to the Schuppli, and Fraser, it is estimated that, an average of 3.5 people die from attacks from exotic people (360). For this reason, people should not be allowed to keep exotic animals like chimpanzees or tigers.
The Zoo Story is said to be" the most impressive debut ever made by an American dramatist" (Bigsby 129). The title of the play, The Zoo Story, is a significant title as it shows that it is not a story about someone who visits the zoo and sees the animals, but it shows how the protagonist, Jerry, lives with his neighbors. Although they are living in a rooming house, they are isolated from each other in their rooms, like animals, and unable to "form relationship even with the landlady 's dog" (Hayman 189), like the animals in the zoo who live in cages. Kenneth Krauss says " the title of the play itself: The Zoo Story,… is the play 's story of how modern urban life transpires in a landscape where human animals are looked into unnatural enclosure" (68) such as " Peter 's scale flat, with wife, children, two televisions, and potentially antagonistic pets" (69). It also shows how Jerry suffers from " divided space" (Krauss 69) in a dirty and shabby like room.
He uses repetition throughout the play to show how Jerry needs to communicate with others. At the very beginning of the play Jerry says " I've been to the zoo"(34) and when Peter does not notice him, he begins to repeat the sentence again saying " I said, I've been to the zoo. MISTER, I'VE BEEN TO THE ZOO!"(34). This repetition is a very important technique in The Zoo Story. The repetition in the above sentence is the basic technique that Albee uses to attract the attention of the audience and the reader to know what is the story of the zoo and what happened with Jerry at the zoo.
One main symbol being the graves of Dian and Digit. Their graves were in the shape of a circle showing the uniting of their souls. Many other symbols throughout this film are there but may have been minorities. Such as the weather or colors of everything, green symbolizing the growth of Dians bond with the gorillas, it may also be a symbol of her emotional state being a factor in wanting to keep the gorillas safe. The weather for the most part was clear but even clear weather can symbolize the mood of the characters.
The Impact of Zoos on the Animals in Them Zoos have been around in America since 1874, and the first recorded zoo was established in Egypt by Queen Hatshepsut in 1500 BC. Keeping animals in an enclosed area for the sole purpose of watching them in order to be entertained is outdated and inhumane in today’s culture. The quality of life for the animals in these zoos is not the same as it would be in their natural habitat, additionally, while the zoo may protect them from their natural predators, there are prevalent new threats when wild animals are kept in enclosed spaces. “Others are concerned that living in a zoo diminishes animals ' quality of life, that captive breeding is of limited value, or that entertainment is not a sufficient justification for keeping animals in captivity” (Kuehn, Bridget). For these reasons, among others, zoos are ultimately more detrimental than helpful to the animals in them.

Significantly, after Jade is reluctant about her views on the ‘boy in the red jacket’, she sets her sight on Onyx, an elephant that lives at the local zoo. Page 56 and 57 proclaims, “My stomach is flopping around in anticipation. I watch Onyx for calm, her swaying body, her trunk rises to explore the upper leaves of a tree.” Jades anticipation leads to her to think about the male in the red jacket, therefore, Jade releases the stress when she thinks about Onyx. This shows that Jade confides in Onyx for moral support and counts on her to be there for her when she needs
