Should Animals be Kept in Zoos?
designed by Péter Puklus for Prezi
- nothing compares to it
- need proper weather
- zoo can't replicate
- need ability to roam freely
- harder to find mates
- zoos are cruel
-not enough space
- not natural habitat
-changes behavior of animal
- bad for health

Reasons they should not
- hurt animals if they disobey
- shorten life spans
- abuse performing animals
-visitors throw things at them
Cruelty at zoos
"Zoo females only live 19 years—about half the life span of the Myanma timber elephants, which, on average, survive until 42." - National Geographic
Space
- enclosed by fences
- not enough space to run wild
-causes physical and mental frustration
- area cant satisfy basic needs
Natural Habitat
Behavior
- strange habitat
-makes animals hostile
- same environment becomes boring
- disoriented
- separation from pact can
cause depression
Health
- bored and loneliness
- develop common "zoochosis"
- swaying back and first is a sign of this
-"This condition is so rampant in zoos that some zoos give animals a mood-altering drug, such as Prozac, because the public has started to catch on." - PETA
-so desperate they try to free themselves
- get arthritis from enclosure
Counter-argument
- zoo highlights endangered animals
- allows people to raise money to
keep them protected
- educates children to protect the planet
for the animals
- sensitizes people to the importance
of these animals
Alternatives
- keep them at wildlife refuges (more space)
- get to stay in habitat similar to one they are accustomed to
- educate people through safaris or videos.
