The positives of wild animals being in captivity

When wild animals are in captivity, it is perfectly possible for them to have a good quality life. A zoo or wildlife park will provide great care and protection to animals in their care. It is a zookeepers job to feed the animals, clean their environments and report any concerns they have. The animal's movement might be restricted and their habitats may be small, but they will not suffer from the threat or stress of predators. It is said that a tiger in captivity could live up to 26 years, but in the wild they may only survive until 15. A good zoo provides an enriched habitat in which the animals are never bored, are well cared for, and have plenty of space. There will always be vets at hand to treat any injuries and illnesses that the animals have. While animlas are in captivtity, they won’t suffer or die from starvation because they recieve a  varied and diet with all the vitamins and nutrients they need. 


Animals in captivity are great for education purposes. Many children and adults will have never see a wild animal such as a lion or giraffe. Television documentaries are detailed and impressive, but seeing a living creature in the flesh is an incredible experience. It can be amazing to hear, smell and watch animals in zoos or wildlife parks. Zoos educate the public and create an appreciation of the wildlife. Zoos bring people and animals together. They are an old tradition, and a visit to a zoo is a wholesome, family activity.
