Bigger Zoos.

Zoos should be bigger in animals natural environments with the animals pray and predators.

First, animals could live in their own environments. If animals could live in their own environments it would help them learn to hunt for food, because when they are kept in cages they can't learn to survive in the wild. Animals can also get the food they need to stay healthy so we find less sick animals. Animals need to live in their own environments not artificial habitats.

Second of all, if zoos were like this they would be cheaper to run therefore they would be less expensive to visit. People should not have to pay a fortune to stare at helpless animals who walk up and down concrete floors in agony day after day. Say "no," to expensive zoos.

Finally, animals would be safe from human danger and still have their freedom. People think animals are safe in zoos, they may be safe however have you taken the time to look at the pathetic sized cages we shove them in? Just think how you would feel if you were put in a cage less than half the size you needed. Some People call zoos "reliable, delightful, effective and sensational" I strongly disagree, animals need space to explore and be safe from human danger.

We need bigger zoos in animals natural environments with the animals pray and predators.

Zoos Are Good For Animals

Zoos are good for animals

Zoos are good for learning and supporting education. they well help in the future when people don't have the knowledge about animals or there habitats.

 Zoos are good for sick and endangered species as well some zoos Have breeding programmes witch rules out the risk of extinction for that spices zoos help the injured animals and fix them up. 

Zoos are good for animals if well treated,looked after and feed yes some zoos are cruel to animals but it depends on the zoo and its staff the zoos should be shut down if animals are not treated appropriately. 

 Zoos are good for seeing animals that you would not see in the Wild and that are to dangers to see I have experience in zoos because I work at an animal farm and i know that some zoos and people treat animals terribly.

I think the purpose of zoos should be to help and care for animals and release them once they are good and healthy.

 so would you like to live in a world with out animals ?

bigger zoos

Animals should not have to suffer for the liking of humans. These habitats should be at least the size of two rugby fields  so animals could have the freedom they need including proper food, water and environment  which would mean they could live the way that they want.

Secondly, animals could hunt for their own food, look for their own mate, keep fit, wouldn't get bored, live a short, happy life instead of a long, lonely, boring life with the zoo keepers controlling every move that they do.

Third these enclosures would be far away from human pollution or destruction like huge factories, city smog, wrong climate and poachers. this way animals would be away from human abuse but we could go and see the animals.

Forth the cost, most zoos are always needing more money for more artificial rocks, plants, water holes,  shelters etc. This way habitats would already include NATURAL rocks, plants, water holes, and animals could sleep were they want. Which would mean zoos wouldn't  need as much money so people wouldn't have to pay as much to go and see the animals.

Fifth most animals live in groups of  their own kind like lions ,orangutans, elephants,buffalo etc.
In zoos animals are put in cages with only one of them in there causing the animal to feel home sick lonely  feverish and disrespected.

Would you like to be in a tiny cage  with know where to go but the feeding room?
This is why I highly disagree with the zoos now-a-days.


We should have animal sanctuaries not zoos.
Firstly zoos spend a lot of money to import exotic species. I did some research and I found out that a Giant Panda costs $1,000,000 to rent as a zoo animal a year. Also if zoos are renting a Giant Panda they have to pay up to $2,000,000 to the Chinese government for research projects.

Zoos can also have tigh,t disgusting enclosures that in some cases could kill the animals they were keeping. Unlike zoos, sanctuaries have larger enclosures, therefore making the animals feel more comfortable. The enclosures might also help with the animals health and well being because they would have enough room to happily explore around.Would you like to live in a damp, dark cage?

Lastly, animal sanctuaries would create jobs for the former zoo keepers so they can still look after animals. Sanctuaries would also have jobs for the not fully qualified zoo keepers to study. Sanctuaries would educate students who are interested in animals.

                                                        Giant Panda

Zoos are they good?

 Should animals be kept in zoos
Animals should not be kept in zoos because...
If we let them back into the wiled they would not survive. The animals are to tame although it dosent look like it. They have feeding times, because of that it becomes a habit that they come to a door or gate, and don't know how to hunt any more. Some people think that it takes more then 30 times to change a habit. Think how meany times it would take to get rid of all there habits and teach them how to hunt again

Some animals like to chase there food not have there food given to them. In the wiled  the animals chase there Food or prey, it becomes part of there life and daly routine. If you feed them they may not like being feed. 

Would you like to be kept in a small area. Considering there natural habitat the enclosure is small but we don't always knowlage it. Have you seen the lion enclosure at Auckland zoo? It's a small island surrounded with water, because of the water the  enclosure seems big but lions dont swim, a few trees grass and three other lions are all they have for entertainment. So ether raze the money or down size the zoos. 

You know in cartoons animals are happy almost all the time. In reality even though we may not see it animals are board I once said to my sister if your life's a bore you haven't accomplished anything animals knee fun in there life same as we do, 

Although we learn about animals we don't learn much about how they get home,well some don't! How would you fell if your child,father,sister,brother or mother got taken away from you and you never saw them again. Here's a better idea why don't we take their hole family not just them.

So my point is have sanctuaries instead!!!

Zoos Are Bad!

The Zoos are not helping the animals learn, why do we have them?

The magic of zoos is dying, and people are forgetting the animals are the most important things there. strongly suggest that the zoos are harmful to the animals. I would truly introduce the idea to abolish them.

The cages are horrible, would you like to be kept in your back yard with little shelter but a shed and maybe a tree? We may as well go to Africa to see the animals happy, it would cost the same amount. 

Never the less, the animals are in agony. The humans feed them and even if they were put back in the wild, they would still rely someone to bring them food. It would also disqualify the instinct to fight off predators and to attack prey.
Next time you go to a zoo, ask your self, are the animals happy? How would you feel to be taken         away from your family?                                                                                                                           

Why I think zoos are bad

I think that zoos are harsh and horrible.

Firstly, animals have feelings just like us, so why do we treat them differently?  How do we treat them harshly? We lock them in cages, and we take them away from there family. My question is, why do we do this?  The only reason why animals turn on us and hurt us, is because we hurt them and they are just fighting back, and I don't blame them. Animals are just like us, so treat them nicely.

Secondly, animals have no space to do much in, its shameful really and cruel to the animals. Most zoo keepers are careless and have barely any feeling for the animals. It's tragic really yet we go and laugh at them, but in reality the animals are suffering. Is this really how we want to spend our lives, watching helpless animals?

Thirdly, it rids of natural animal instincts, meaning that they can not hunt, bathe or possibly survive, if let free in the wild. People don't think that much about it but this is one, of the reasons species are dying off, and the reason why we are getting more hunters around these areas. Animals need instincts to survive just like we need food and water.

Finally,  I have a question for you. How would you like it if you were locked  in a cage till death? Not so great is it This is what zoo animals do and its harsh.  If you really think about it, zoos are just jails for animals that didn't do anything, other animals are just confused cell mates. Well there where ways that we could have prevented this from happening but we chose none! hopefully you can see what I'm on about.

That is why I think zoos are harsh and wicked.

Animals deserve to be free

Zoos are really more a people thing than an animal thing. People love going to zoos but do think animals like living there?

Animals should not be kept in cages!
They were born to be wild so why don't we let them. People have plucked them from their homes and their freedom to live in cages. How would you like it if you were locked in a cage being stared at pointed at and laughed at all day.

Animals should be able to express normal animal behavior. They should be able to choose their meals and their mates. We have made them tame so if we were to return them to the wild they wouldn't survive. Because they can't hunt and they don't know how behave in certain situations such as when they need to fight off a predator.

It cost's a lot to keep the animals happy, healthy and clean. If the animals were in the wild we wouldn't have to worry about that. We could use the money to build a safari park where animals can roam wild and free but people can still visit them and get close to them.

Animals deserve to stay wild and free so why don't we let them? 

Zoos are great

I think that zoos are a good thing.
The zoo is a popular place to inspire everyday people there also great for educating young adults.
The animals are basically in there natural habitat.

When food time comes zoo keepers tie food to the trees to make the animal feel as if there hunting down there food as if they were in the wild. After a generous feed the animals slowly fall asleep in there trustworthy enclosure for a good night sleep.

Most zoos breed and help endangered animals which highly effects there extinction.
The health of the animals are one of the zoo keepers top priorities.

Zoos Are Good

Zoo's are a good place

We should have zoo's because they are safe from danger, like being made into hats,gloves and rugs. They are also safe because they don't get eaten and they are also safe from the pet trade.

If animals were in zoo's they will get taken care of well,if an animal is sick, the zoo will take care of it,they also would get the right medical care that they need, and a lot of rest so that when they are better they can be put back into the wild to bread and be free again.

 Zoo's also let kids know about certain animals.This is good for rare animals because people can help them kids can also form groups to help give tremendous care of them to prevent animals from dieing .

People also need to know what animals can take care of you with some body parts, and to know what animals can kill you or badly hurt you.

people also take home info on animals that they do not know about.

please agree with me on this post

zoo enclosure should be bigger

Zoo enclosure should be bigger so animals can room more.
It will be better for the animals cause it will be more like they natural habitat.
And they can be more spread if they don't like being together.

 If zoo enclosure where bigger guest can see more animals and plants in one.
Also if everything was bigger it will be more spaced out so zookeepers can get in easier.

Zoos help by learning how animals act by doing so they save they from extinction.
but some animals in zoos are sad because they are lonely cause there enclosure are not
big enough for two or more.

That is why I think enclosure should be bigger.

ZOOS ARE CRUEL!!!!!!!!!!

Zoos are cruel.

Firstly, I think animals should be kept away from pointing fingers and prying eyes. Agitated and annoyed, those animals are helpless. They walk, up and down, up and down. Day after day, night after night, looking for what they crave for most, their food and family. And you, you just stare and point.

Secondly, animals need to be able to look after themselves, finding and killing their own food. Meanwhile animals are being fed meat on a plate and fruit in a bowl. Its awful and repulsive. How would you feel if you were fed the same food, each day?

Lastly, animals deserve to be free. Going where they want to go. Running across plains or climbing trees. Living a happy life. Staring into the sky, watching, listening, for the call of their herds, friends and mates. Why don’t we put you in a cage, never seeing your friends and family? You inconsiderate people never think about these poor animals.

This is why I think zoos a cruel and wrong.




Zoos help to teach people about animals.

Zoos have saved lots of species of animals by finding them in the wild and bringing them to the zoo. At the zoo they can protect them from other animals and people. The zoo can give them first aid, fresh water
and food every day.

Zoos help endangered animals and prevent them from being extinct because they have breeding programs. Breeding programs will help endangered species to keep there kind. They help them breed more animals.

People would see the endangered animals before they get extinct and they would learn more about them and ways to help save them. People make charities to raise money for the animals. Most of the money goes to helping the animals.

Zoos have helped for many years to teach people about animals and how to protect them and save them in the wild.

Zoos Are Needed!

Zoos have helped people and animals in many ways. Although it is “cruel” to the animals, I think zoos are necessary.

Firstly, zoos can get endangered animals into breeding programs and help them reproduce and breed. Some zoos have a breeding program and can save endangered animals from extinction. Here are some that we've saved; orangutans, polar bears, pandas, white tigers, kiwis, narwhale and so many others. By putting the animals into the breeding program the animals can breed in peace and security and predators cannot get them.

Secondly, they should be kept because since the time when zoos were cruel, tiny and so unlike their old homes, zoos have got much better and are more like there wild habitat. So if you think animals should not be kept in zoos because of how small the enclosures are, your reason is weak.

Finally, zoos help people to learn about the different animals including how, when and where they hunt, breed and sleep. They have learned all about where the great white sharks migrate from south Africa to Australia. How butterflies migrate from Canada to Mexico. How jelly fish migrate from one side of a tropical lake to the other. All of this is done, helped by or supported by zoos.

Would you like to live in a world without many animals? Well the knowledge gained and the animals saved by zoos is extraordinary, I think zoos should be kept.


Animals should not be kept in zoos.

Zoos should be banned because animals there are kept in small cagesSome animals like Lions, Tigers and Bears have tiny habitats so they can't exercise properly or hunt. Polar bears for instance, have been taken out of the cold and put into a different climate which might be hotter. If zoos are going to be kept we NEED bigger habitats. How would you like to be kept in your room for your whole life?

Secondly animals can't hunt for their own food. Even though keepers hide food and stick it in balls it isn't the same as hunting. Baby animals born in Zoos won't know how to hunt so they can't be released back into the wild. Even though some animals don't get much food in the wild, we need to make them hunt for food in Zoos.

Breeding programs are great, but why do they need to be in zoos? Most Zoos have breeding programs for endangered animals but they don't have to be in a zoo and can be in a sanctuary. Zoos are cramped and small and have animals that shouldn't be kept in the same place are few meters away from each other. That's why sanctuary's are great because they have freedom but are kept safe from predators and poachers.

We DON'T need zoos; they are just for entertaining us and we can live without them.


Zoos only exist for the amusement of people. They are inhumane places that are not suitable for animals. How would you like it to be taken away from your family and locked away with only prying eyes company?

Its not fair to have zoos because we have already taken so much for them like habitats and food, but now we are taking away their family as well. Everybody knows about wars and how people were sold unwillingly and made live in terrible conditions? Well this is no different, cages are not a place for animals.

You hear of kidnapping and you feel for the victim and dislike the kidnapper. You wonder how they could do that, what were thinking? To take away a mother, child, someones sister or brother you feel sympathy for their family. This is no different we take defenceless animals away from their natural home it isn't fair.

People claim they are helping animals by taking them into zoos but most animals never get out the zoo again. If you want to help animals you should come to them instead of bringing them to us. Imagine calling 111 with a broken leg and being told you had to get yourself to the hospital. Its pathetic...

There is no benefit for animals in zoos so we should invest in sanctuaries and safaris instead. If your not a poo don't go to the zoo.

ZOOS should we have them? My opinion

Zoos exist to provide entertainment for people and to make money. The health and happiness of the animals always come second.
Why is this ,can't zoos be there for the animals to have a safe and happy environment.
Can't we put animals needs before ours and leave them or just take care 
Animals in zoos dream of home then wake up in a smelly zoo enclosure captive and missing.

Although zoos educate they don't help animals in more than one way.
keeping an injured animal in a enclosed space with humans is not good. Think about
this ,In the wild, tigers live 15 to 20 years In captivity, they live as long as 22years. Thats only a 2 year difference.  Baboons on the other hand live for 40 years captive 36 wild . That Enough time to grow up and find a mate to populate the next generation.

"Aren't you ashamed of yourself?
 Sitting,laughing and pointing at helpless animals with only you for entertainment .
Walking back and forth is their life sentence not luxury and care.
Living in a harsh cold or to boiling hot climate completely different from their natural habitat how would you like it murky water out of date food? Think about the animals not the humans! 


Zoo exhibits should be bigger.

My first reason is animals can roam more in bigger exhibits.  There have been too many incidents of tame animals living depressed boring lives. How would you like being cooped up in a little cage?

Another reason is if the exhibits were bigger, animals would be able to hide, so they wouldn't be  in limelight all the time. How would you like it if everyone was steering at you 7 days week 365 days year?

My last reason is, if zoo exhibits were bigger, zoos could put more animals in the exhibits. So more guests would come, which then means more money for the zoo so they can buy exotic species of animals for people to enjoy. 

So zoo exhibit should be bigger. What do you think?
