After looking at some of the forums on this site, I am starting to believe that zoos in general are a lost cause. Many species are dwindling at a rapid rate and, even with the help of zoos, they’re still going to become extinct. Maybe it’s time we shut the gates for good. If anyone has evidence to prove me wrong, I’d like to hear it. Edit: Zoos are NOT a lost cause. I let my feelings get the best of me. Zoos do amazing work at saving a variety of species from extinction and can really inform people about what they can do to save animals in the wild. I joined this community because of my love for zoos. I feel like I betrayed all of you. I’m sorry for my words. I promise to never say anything negative about zoos in general again.
