We have been keeping animals in zoos for a very long time. It is believed that because zoos can provide safety and food to animals, it is better for them to live there. However, in my opinion, the advantages are equal to the disadvantages as there are several points we should take account of when doing this.

The advantages of the zoos are obvious. When staying in the zoos, the animals are safe from predators, harsh environment conditions, and are provided with enough and proper food and care. Additional, zoos help endangered populations by using captive breeding and release. Many zoos also work on local conservation efforts to maintain local wildlife populations. As they can lead peaceful life without worrying about anything, we can help them gradually raise their number again. Therefore, zoos play an essential part of taking after animal activities.

Nevertheless, for the animals kept in zoos, there are also some drawbacks. Firstly, they can easily lose their natural habits and instincts when separated from their natural habitat for too long, so it’s difficult for it to return to wildlife. For example, a lion born and growing up in zoo environment couldn’t know how to hunt preys and live out of the zoo. Moreover, captive breeding isn’t always effective, zoos do not provide natural habitatsand that zoos put unnecessary stress on animals. Animals are often bored and, as a result, some become aggressive and can lash out at other animals or zookeepers… Thus, for many creatures, life within a zoo is not a happy one.
Based on the points given above, although zoos protect animals in captivity and contribute to the conservation, we also have to pay attentions to the states of the zoos to create suitable environment for animals’ overall development. In my view, the advantages are equal to the disadvantages
