I've been wanting to have an discussion about society and the (in my opinion) rapidly changing view on animals in captivity. Please understand that I myself am a supporter of zoos, parks, organizations, etc. that work with global animal species. I am a firm believer that though it might seem that animal captivity is wrong, I trust in the aspect that zoos are giving the best possible care to their animals, raising public awareness, contributing to species conservation, educating the general public about the beautiful animals our world is home to, providing many other benefits to the larger global picture. I ultimately want to see zoos progress and thrive providing more programs, opportunities, and education because I believe animal captivity truly benefits species globally as well as the natural habitat they originated from. (Please know that I am discussing what I have experienced through my local community in the United States and the perceptions and views I have developed through my personal conversations, social media outlets, research, and discoveries. I would love to hear any thoughts on this issue. Zoochat is a global community and I welcome all to weigh in on what your perceptions are from what you have experienced.) As a college student, I am constantly interacting with other young minds on a daily basis and hearing many points of view of "the injustices in our world," especially in the form of social media. From what I have experienced, one of the trends now is that animal captivity is unjust and not right. The argument is mainly towards Seaworld and places that care for Cetaceans due to the Blackfish "documentary," but I am getting the sense that this trend is going to continue to evolve. Since the Harambe incident, I believe that the trend it is progressing especially with millennials in the United States. MY QUESTION: Do you fear for the future of Zoos?
