The zoos do educate the public, but I believe there must be another way to get that information to the public without keeping animals in small exhibits. The animals tend to look so depressed and it makes me feel the same way when I think about them having to live in those cages with people bothering them day after day, year after year. Who wouldn’t hate that? Everything you mentioned that zoos do is great, but I really think that it can, and should, be done in another way. I would much rather like to see wildlife preserves than zoos. I see them as being just as beneficial, but better for the overall well-being of the animals.
