All living species should be treated with care and respect, no organisms should be made a commodity for the sake of human interest. Exotic animals, which are unusual or rare species such as lions, tigers, and non-human primates – are nowadays kept within households as pets. However, according to research, 98% of the people believe that exotic animals should not be kept as “pets”.

Consequently, these programs lead to a surplus of animals. Zoo enclosures can only hold so many animals so this surplus of them makes the living conditions even worse. On the contrary, it is cool to see animals that you would not normally get the chance to see, but despite this, animals need to be well taken care of in a good environment. Animals should not be taken out of their home to become an attraction for people. They should be taken out of their home only to be helped and then

Animal rights activists argue that it is inhumane to house animals in inadequate habitats and are upset that many species that aren’t considered endangered are being held in zoos around the world. Zoo advocates argue for the conservation and research of endangered species, and thoroughly work to benefit different species and keep them healthy. Both arguments base their reasoning off of varying ideas, animals rights activists address the physical downfalls of animals in captivity, how it is nearly impossible to perfectly recreate an animals natural habitat, and the abuse of animals in captivity.
