If we could only relate to the animals who are imprisoned in zoos, then the whole human population would more than likely release the animals because of the conditions. Wildlife parks and zoos do not keep animals safe, do not provide education, and do not protect endangered species. To be concluded, we need to do our best to ban zoos for they only teach us that it’s okay to keep animals in captivity far away from their home

I use to think pesticides are good because they kill pests, but now I have learned that pesticides are awful to the wildlife, soil, and waterways.

Humans loose themselves in the wonders of their natural environments and are compelled to revel in the simplicity with which wildlife thrives on.
