  • Why Do Zoos Keep Animals Captive?

    Zoos exist for one main reason, conservation, but does locking animals up actually help a species survive? When zoos keep animals captive, they often become depressed, not successful in conservation and exposed to harsh habitat conditions. Animals experience unfair and cruel lives while humans use the excuse of protection to keep them captive.Therefore, I take the position that keeping animals captive is a cruel thing. Animals in captivity are often depressed, lonely, and aggressive due to human interactions. Animals such as dolphins and whales, tend to get frustrated with all the screaming children and clapping adults. They tend to get bored of swimming in their small enclosures all day. As stated by Lori Valigra, “When tasked with entertaining tourists all day, with nowhere to escape, cetaceans often become bored, frustrated and aggressive.” This shows how human…
