Should we keep wild animals in zoos?by Dalene Ingham-Brown

  • Google+

We are firm believers that wild animals should be where they belong: in the wild. Zoos and circuses are out but rehabilitation centres and sanctuaries are understandably in!

Should we keep wild animals in zoos?

Confused and frustrated, these animals show visitors at the zoo that you can take an animal out of the wild, but you can't take the wild out of the animal. *Queue lion roar here*

In a very clever ad campaign for a zoo, the nature of wildlife is portrayed perfectly:

Why would you want to visit a zoo or circus to see wildlife anyway? Why not go on a real wildlife safari or visit a wildlife rehabilitation centre? We want to hear what you have to say about the matter. Should we keep wild animals in zoos? Drop us a comment below. Go wild.
