There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

For or against zoos?

Zoos. A controversial topic discussed thoroughly by many with both sides having very valid arguments which are well known. So I present a very simple question, are you for or against zoos? Or stuck in a cross road? Please explain your choice below.

For a bit more insight into the perspective of each side: http://animalrights.about.com/od/animals...t-Zoos.htm

I am 100% for having zoos, but only for threatened species. These animals should always have a near-to-lifelike natural environment. They should have the best possible care. While people may buy tickets to see them, the purpose must remain to benefit the animal with the "entertainment" for the human visitors secondary.

I am completely against zoos. Nature reserves (or better yet, plain old nature) are much better for the expansion/death of a species.

If humanity wants to continue living in a modernized society, then they should completely leave wild animals alone.
