“Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A zoo has no useful purpose. Use specific reasons and examples to explain your answer.

It will be wrong to say that a zoo has no useful purpose. I shall elaborate on the purpose and usefulness of Zoos.

A zoo is also known as zoological garden or a zoological park. This is a facility in which animals are kept within enclosures and displayed to the public, and in those enclosures animals breed too. The term zoological garden refers to the biological discipline zoology, which derives from Greek. Most modern zoos display wild animals primarily for the conservation of endangered species and for educational and research purposes, and secondarily for the entertainment of visitors.

However many animal rights activists disapprove of zoos because they interpret zoos as human domination over animals and criticize their educational value as being superficial. Some animal welfare groups however do not reject the existence of zoos, but seek to remedy the unnatural and unhealthy conditions wherein captive animals’ live, particularly the problem of small cages and lack of environmental enrichment. Some zoos are unable to provide adequate food and care to their animals’ because of lack of funds. However many of the large and scientifically oriented institutions work to improve the animal enclosures, although constraints like size and expense makes it difficult to create ideal captive environments for some species.

Some zoos concentrate on aquariums and amusement parks. Aquariums are made for the water species like various kinds of fishes. Those fishes have variety of very attractive colors and designs that attracts everyone, especially children like it the most and feel delighted.

In conclusion the biggest usefulness of a zoo is the conservation of endangered species, secondly the breeding that prevents the extinction, thirdly the education and research work and last but least amusement and entertainment of the visitors and tourists that brings revenue to the nation.
