      Zoos save endangered speciesby bringing them into a safe environment, where they are protected from poachers, habitat loss, starvation, and predators. Many zoos have breeding programs for endangered species. In the wild, these individuals might have trouble finding mates and breeding, and species could become extinct. Zoos and animal rights would appear to be in conflict, yet Stephen Bostock argues that this need not and should not be so. Examining the diverse ethical and technical issues involved, including human cruelty, human domination over animals outside their natural habitat, and the nature of wild and domestic animals, Bostock analyzes areas in which misconceptions abound.5/5(2).

    The paper provides a timeline of the evolution of animal welfare in zoos, which seemingly began with the publication of Swiss zoo director Heini Hediger’s Wild Animals in Captivity (a book that “described the importance of considering animals’ flight distance and the quality of the spaces in which they are kept”), was spurred by. 1) Zoos are animal prisons. No more euphemisms! 2) When people say, "But zoos save endangered animals," the truth is, 99 percent of all the animals at the zoo are UNENDANGERED. If zoos were only saving endangered animals, no one would complain. But zoos are a business. In fact, zoos are usually the number-one tourist attraction in every state.

    Zoos refuse to inform the public how many animals are killed in zoos. Estimates suggest ten thousand large mammals are killed each year in European Zoos alone, never mind other animals. Whilst we keep animals in captivity they risk being killed by the very people who put them there. Zoos mutilate animals. Imagine being a bird and being able to fly.   In his book An Introduction to Animals in Visual Culture, author Randy Malamud clearly states his beliefs about the ethical concerns zoos raise. The zoo experience is voyeuristic, imperialistic, inauthentic, and steeped in the ethos of consumer culture, which is antithetical to nature and ecology, and hence a danger to animals.

The purpose of many of zoo animals, especially the large ones like African lions, elephants and giraffes, is to acquire money at the gate from paying visitors. Zoos breed cute baby animals for the same reason, too pull in crowds, but then have a surplus of animals once they are grown-up and must get rid of them.
