Animals in Captivity - Should or Should Not Be Kept P4
Animals can be kept in captivity for many reasons for the benefit of themselves or us humans. Here are some points as to why it's good to keep animals in captivity.
* Captive breeding programs
Captive breeding preserves endangered species from extinction. Breeding in captivity removes the treats that would normally prevent breeding in the wild or the survival of the young. It may be the only chance for that species to survive.
Captive breeding plays a significant role in conserving species.
Reintroduction is the ultimate goal of every captive-breeding program. Once the level of species in captivity has reached a sustainable high some can be introduced into the wild.
* Educational purposes
Having animals in captivity for education and research gives people a greater understanding of how they develop, breed, live and would act in the wild.
Mission statement from Paignton Zoo:
