Transcript: Animals are taken from their natural habitat. Many animals are euthanized, or put down, for little to no reason. Some zoos even request to take the animal off the owner's hands, but they decline. For example, Marius the reticulated giraffe was shot at the Copenhagen Zoo, since there wasn't enough room for him. Many other zoos offered to buy him, but none of the offers were taken up. Zoo's don't provide sufficient space. Some zoos are connected to circuses. Zoo animals don't live as long. Scientists have seen that many animals in zoos show signs of behavioral problems from being in the same small area, with no new experiences. Zoos, in a way, drive animals crazy. Lions will pace along the edge of their enclosure, and a polar bear named Gus would swim figure eights in the water, for up to 12 hours at a time, giving him the name "the bipolar bear". By: Makenzie Mueller Many animals need more space to explore, and thrive. For example, in the wild, wolves live in territories that span from 300 to 1,000 square miles or more, while an exhibit is normally much smaller than one square mile. Zoos do nothing for conservation. Many zoos want a certain species of animal to exhibit, but can't find a place to buy them. To receive these animals, they capture them from the wild. Over time, this can add up, and decrease the wild population, which could possibly lead to extinction. Animals that have been in zoos or domesticated cannot be released back into the wild, because they haven't learned essential skills. Because of this, endangered animals in zoos cannot be reintroduced successfully into the wild. Do Zoos Do More Harm and damage, than good? Most zoos claim to help the conservation of endangered species by having them in their zoo, and breeding them. In reality, this isn't helping the wild population at all, only the in-zoo population, and the zoo's popularity. The zoos don't help the wild population because the animals don't have the skills necessary for survival, therefore they can't be reintroduced to the wild. Most wild animals live over 3 times as long as animals that live in zoos. Even asian elephants that work in timber camps live as long as their undomesticated cousins. A good example of this is Tilly the orca. He was captured in Iceland in 1981, at the age of two. He died of sickness January 6, 2017. The average lifespan of a wild orca is 50 years, while Tilly died at the age of 38. Too many animals are euthanized. Many zoos want to get rid of one or more of their animals, so they sell them to circuses. Circuses treat their animals very poorly for the most part. They keep their animals in small cages and pens, and a good handful of animals are physically abused, and forced to obey. Zoos can largely effect an animal's mental well-being. There is more evidence that zoos do more harm, rather than good, to the animals that they keep. Such as, insufficient enclosure space, shorter life span, euthanization, animals taken from their natural habitat, effecting their mental well-being, connection to circuses, and lack of helping conservation.

Clear, bright, alert eyes. Fresh breath Flippers clear of swelling. Complete fur coat Active Signs of good health: Good Health in captive animals. coughing, sneezing or noisy, rapid breathing. Thick mucus coming from the nose. wounds or swellings, particularly on the flippers. Cloudy eyes. Sunburn and patchy/missing fur. Malnutrition -visible ribs, hips and neck ,baggy, wrinkled skin. Lethargic behaviour. Poor Health: Poor health in captive animals. Sea Lions often suffer from an array of health problems associated with humans such as pneumonia, epilepsy, various types of cancers,gastric disorders, viral, and bacterial infections. Leptospirosis is a type of bacterial infection commonly found in California sea lions. It primarily attacks the kidneys and can lead to permanent kidney damage, kidney failure, and even death. Canine related diseases – dystemper and rabies. Internal parasites Lungworm, hookworm etc External parasites include lice, mites, and ticks. Zoonotic infections are generally bacterial and have only been documented being transferred via bite or scratch, for example ‘Seal finger’. Common diseases: Common Diseases In captivity. Vaccinations. Antibiotics. Suitable diet including supplements. Suitable enclosures. Treatment/ Prevention. Treatment and prevention of Disease.

Zoonotic disease can be passed to humans in the form of small pox. Trunk Paralysis Bacterial infection-can be caused by injury -sprain or pulled muscle.Can be caused by parasites attacking the nerves in the trunk. Foot disease -overgrown souls and nails on feet .Wet surfaces and inappropriate substrate no foot care . Common Diseases In captive Elephants Elephant pox can be prevented from a simple vaccine from the vets. Special care keeping on top of pest control and checking food and washing food thoroughly. Trunk paralysis cant really be prevented but rest for a sprain or pulled muscle.Antibiotics can be given but most often the elephant ends up being euthenized . Food disease can be prevented from keeping the floors dry. Regular foot inspection and nail trimming.

Transcript: Which animals deserve priority? second floor of enclosure We have made an enclosure on the computer with a downloaded "device" called Google Sketch Up. We have three floors for the main enclosure; the first two floors for the polar bears (one water/ice and the other completely ice/snow) The third floor is devoted to the sick/injured polar bears and to research them. The visitors will go from the first to the second floor with an elevator. The third floor will be blocked off for any visitors but employees to go into. We will also have a smaller, extra building where people can sit on special chairs, put on glasses and experience how the Arctic is like and see from a polar bear's point of view. Also, there is going to be a frozen yogurt place called PoYo and a shaved ice place called Arctic Ice. Finally, there will be a lot of information for the visitors to read while in the extra building and going around the enclosure. first floor of enclosure ABOUT OUR PRESENTATION GOOGLE SKETCH UP IMAGES We have come to a conclusion that polar bears deserve the most priority in zoos. Their habitat is warming up twice as fast as average temperatures around the world. They cannot live without their habitat, and the rest of the plants and animals in their habitat will die out due to the imbalance of the ecosystem. If the polar bears cannot adapt to changing climates, they might face almost total extinction before the end of the 21st century, with about 66% of the animals disappearing by 2050. What's more, if polar bears die out, humans and other animals will have to compete with seals for fish in the ocean. Polar bears are a very important part of their ecosystem, and if they die out, it is possible that the entire Arctic ecosystem that they live in could collapse. By Joonhee Park, Juliana Ishimine, Zach Lafer, Julia Cornelissen model images GOOGLE SKETCH UP IMAGES We have come to an agreement tht zoos are essential in the 21st century. Although it is a terrible thing to keep animals in cages, we need to do this to keep these species alive. Also, zoos are our last line of defense according to the executive director of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria, Leslie Dickie. The animals will die if we let them live alone in the wild, and if we keep them in sanctuaries, we won't be able to breed them and will have to watvh them all die out sooner or later. Humans are the ones who caused most of these animals to extinction; shouldn't humans be the ones to save them? Yes. We cannot stand fro the sidelines and pretend that there will be a miracle to save all of these animals from extinction. We are the only ones that can help, and we have to do it now. Are zoos essential in the 21st century? Which animals deserve priority? Design of our zoo enclosure/model We have made a model to further show how our enclosure will look like.

Transcript: Calgary Zoo Field Trip Photosynthesis is a process used by pants or some organisms that converts the energy of light into chemical energy, This chemical energy can be used to fuel the organisms acitivities! Photosynthesis Photosynthesis Organisms that live underwater, an aquatic plant or animal, typically one suitable for a pond or aquarium. We took a picture of a fish tank full of fish bcause they are one of the only species that can only stay underwater. Aquatic Aquatic Recycling Bin Recycling bin Exttirpation is when a animal is completely extinct from its place of origin, Like the Swift fox it is usually found around North America but now they are not so easily found. Extirpation Extirpation A flightless bird is a bird that cannot fly! Like this penguin, It is classified as a bird but it does not fly AT ALL! Flightless Bird Flightless Bird Amphibians are a species of animals that are cold blooded vertabre that consist of frog, toads & salamanders. Amphibian Amphibian Sexual Reproduction is the production of a new living organism by putting togehter genitals from two organisms of opposite sex. For sexual reproduction we took a picture of this mighty fine gorilla. Sexual Reproduction Sexual Reproduction Sexual dimorphisim is when 2 animals of a different sex in the same speices show different charactiristics other than sexual organs. The animal we did was a peacock because the male has large colorfull feathers and the females do not, So that sole difference represnts sexual dimorphisim. Sexual Dimorphisim Sexual Dimorphism A reptile is a animal from the reptilia class, They are animals said to be desendents of the extinct dinosaurs, For our reptile we took a picture of a round-nosed plated lizard! Reptile Reptile With every species of animal they all have a different diet, The 3 main types of diets for animals are carnivore, herbavour & omnivore. A carnivore is a organism that gets is energy & nutrients from meat. a herbivore is an organism gets its energy & nutrients from plants & lastly an omnivore is an organism that gets energy & nutrints from noth meat & plants! Diets Diet A Herbivour is an animal that only eats plants. Like a Giraffe! Herbivore A carnivour is an animal whos diet is strictly composed of meat! Carnivore An omnivore is an animal who' s diet is composed of both plants & meat! Omnivore Migration is when a indviduals of a species travel long distances ussualy to escape weather. Migration can also occur when the food supply runs out. The animal we did for migration is a bird. migration Immigration Habitiat Sharing Habitiat Sharing Habitat sharing is when many organisms live in one habitat! For habitat sharing we took a picture of a lion because lions share their habitats with differnet organisms in the wild! Mimicry is when an organism the evolves throughout its life span! Like a butterflfy, A butterfly starts it life as a very small organism that turns into a cacoon & then finally turns into a majestic butterfly! Mimicry Mimicry Extinction is when a species or a specififc organism is completely gone, Like the Madnagascar native Dodo bird which is now completely extinct.[ Extinction Extinction
