My Hypothesis- DogLover846

  • Zoos are helpful
  • Zoos help endangered animals
  • They are affective in a way that cares for animals and improves their health.
  • Zoos care for unwell animals that become endangered because of their condition, thus helping the overall population.
  • With many animals becoming endangered, it is a zoo’s responsibility to keep them from going extinct with practice, endorsement and research.
  • Zoos and nature reserves help increase the population of different species and protect endangered animals through different research, protected areas and breeding.

    I’m delighted to say this is a new topic after more than 10 years of teaching Comp classes two or three times a year. Thank you for fresh subject matter.

    I wonder how true what you say actually is. I’m sure you’ll find examples of zoos taking responsibilities for individual animals that have become personally endangered, but is there anything like a widespread campaign among zoos to take in and nurture significant numbers of imperiled animals? And if so, wouldn’t they be most likely animals that appealed to large numbers of zoo-goers, not necessarily the animals most endangered? Maybe I’m wrong. I hope I am.

    One thing I’m pretty sure you’re NOT suggesting is that zoos can do more than mitigate the overwhelming numbers of species that go extinct every decade. And even if they could, what safe habitat could they return them to that would provide them any reasonable chance of surviving long-term without being held in protective custody?

    I’m still thrilled by your choice, but I’m feeling like a devil’s advocate here. I hope you’re taking it as a challenge and will come back strong with evidence.

    I got more than 1000 search results for this at Google Scholar:

    My search parameters looked like this:
    “endangered species” +Zoo +conservation +rare “wildlife preservation”
