Why are Zoos important?

At, we deal with a lot of zoos in our daily business dealings. While in captivity at zoos,birds of prey,reptiles, and other animals are fedfeeder mice, frozen mice, and more to satiate their appetites. There are a variety of arguments portraying negative examples of zoos, but we see them as a beautiful sanctuary that preserves life and allows a community to come together to visit the world and the beautiful creatures that inhabit it

When the suns out and the weathers nice nothing else sounds better than spending an afternoon at the zoo. Getting up close and personal with wild species from around the globe is an encounter we couldn’t experience without world-class zoos right here in our backyard.

Zoos offer a state of conservancy to wildlife across the world. A colossal number of animals worldwide are becoming extinct very rapidly. Zoos offer stability and protect species against extinction. Animals who preside in zoos have the ability to live long, healthy and prosperous lives while given the opportunity to procreate. Most species residing in a zoo would not survive in the wild because poachers would them for their skin, teeth, and other parts.

Education is another major pro of zoos. Where else can a young child or adult gain opportunity to see a rare giraffe, lion, or a giant gorilla? Yes, they could travel halfway across the world to Africa, but the likelihood is slim to none. Having a well-kept zoo in the community can shape and cultivate young minds into thinking bigger.

Zoos also give us the chance to research. Having a space to get up close and personal with how a species act and live in their ecosystem is invaluable to a scientist. It would be extremely difficult and dangerous to closely research some animals in the wild for obvious reasons.

Lastly, zoos give the opportunity for a family to grow closer, learn, and spend an afternoon thinking bigger than the community they are a part of.

There is a great, big world beyond our home, and zoos help put that into perspective. By spending time and supporting your local zoo, we can help support education, research and conservation.
