Hailey Link Mrs. Bauch Speech 18 May 2016 As stated in a novel by Yann Martel, Life of Pi, ? Territories in the wild are large not as a matter of taste but of necessity. In a zoo we do for animals what we have done for ourselves with our houses: we bring together in a small space what in the wild is spread out (Moosa). Zoos provide a safe environment for animals to live in where they are well-cared for as well as a place for people to learn more about animals. Today I am going to try to persuade you to believe that zoos are beneficial in many ways to both humans and the animals within them.
I have been chosen to be a possible volunteer at my local animal shelter. I must write an essay to prove that I am the best candidate for the job. I think I should be chosen because I am a very kind person to both people and animals, I work very well with animals, and I have grown up around animals so I know very much about them and how to take care of them. I am extremely caring towards other people and animals of all kinds. I feel that I would be the perfect candidate for the job because of that.
They are used to an environment where they could explore. So, when they are placed in an setting that is small and no room to explore then they become bored and “are less active than those housed in larger outdoor enclosures” (Mallupur 2005). These details can ensure psychological and physical problems. According to the article, Self-Injuries Behavior in Zoo Primates, frustration associated with environmental events can lead to self-injuries behaviors. These self-injuries consist of over-grooming, hair-pulling and biting themselves repeatedly.
This is what zoo animals feel every day. They want to be free from captivity, especially ones taken from the wild. Zoos may seem safe and good for animals, but they are not. When noticing the dangers of zoos, watching animals go through terrible hardships, and by hearing the cry for basic rights gives people a sad view that shows how zoos are prisons to animals.
We observed the Colobus at the Henry Villas Zoo in Madison, WI. The animals at the zoo are ensure to have the highest standards of welfare and the best care that is given to the animals. The zoo setting allows us to observe the animal behavior repeatedly from the same species and or the same individual. Our objective of this project was to evaluate why the Colobus are always up high, sleeping or interacting with one another? Also to evaluate why are they always together?
As Zoos demonstrate best practices in operating sustainable, enhancing exhibits to create acceptable homes for the animals in its care, showing important and impactful improvement to the overall zoological garden expertise, the zoo around the world serve to secure a future for each life and wild places. Thus, zoos are a productive and successful strategy for protecting endangered species
The Woodland Park Zoo doesn’t just showcase rare and endangered animals it also has a specular program for rebreeding rare endangered animals. Another benefit the zoo has is that it is one of the largest open zoos in the state of Washington. Not only does the Woodland Park Zoo take great
Also, the zoo is a theme park: as a garden for human entertainment and consumption it evokes Cockaigne—the land of abundance, enjoyment and the pleasure (Braverman, 2012). He analyzes the perfect image of zootopia through observing the relationship between people and nature. I think he is inspired by Sir Ebenezer Howard ’s book in 1898 named Garden Cities of To-morrow. This book gives a description of a utopian city in which people live harmoniously together with nature.
The potential for beneficial effects was accessed. Accidental evidence seems to support these kind of programs, as an independent assessments. If you have ever watched Orange is the New Black, you probably remember a few scenes with Boo and Little Boo (the dog therapy dog in training). Little Boo was portraying the program. This similar program runs in the USA, Canada, Australia and all across the nation.
Guinea pigs aren 't expensive pets to keep. Most pet shops and garden centres sell them for around £10-£20. Cavies can get bored easily, so ideally they should be kept in pairs or small groups, especially as they 're herd animals. Of course you can 't just get a guinea piggie (or two) - your pet(s) will need a suitable home. Hutches generally range from £40-£180 depending on the quality of the hutch.
According to Jennie Baxla of the SICSA organization, SICSA gives their animals significant amounts of care while they are under their responsibility. The animals at no-kill shelters such as SICSA receive copious amounts of care, such as “spay[ing] and neuter[ing], microchipping, vaccinations, [and] tests for parasites” (Jewell). These no-kill shelters are incredibly dedicated to their work and animals. Additionally, the pets that receive care at no-kill shelters also receive human interaction. Multiple volunteer activities exist at no-kill shelters across the nation that involve people from all ages interacting and playing with the animals (Baxla, Jewell).
I choose my areas of interest to decide on what types of service learning position I should do, seems it would be my very first time got to experience in what it would be like to interacting with animals in the shelter helping them grooming and bathing. I think the task should not be as difficult as it sounds. It should be fun and interesting. I am looking forward to my first day. 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.
Getting a once in a life time opportunity to help out would be extremely rewarding in ways that I cannot even explain. I want to gain experience with different kinds of animals and improve my knowledge on wild animals, so I can achieve my dream of becoming a wildlife veterinarian and helping animals that can 't help them
An important role that the Indianapolis Zoo plays is connecting people to the natural world by allowing interactions to animals that they may never encounter otherwise. By creating that interaction we open up a dialogue to share with them the true status of the wild places of our planet. Often, I feel that the general person envisions the environment as pristine wildernesses where remote places are free from human induced issues. In reality, there are few places untouched or truly pristine. What zoos and aquariums excel at is bringing these issues to the forefront of our guests without making doomsday statements.
