Took dds to the zoo today. I was sad seeing all these poor animals out of their natural habitats. Is there a good reason to support zoos? Does anyone boycott zoos?

We only go to sanctuaries that rehabilitate and home animals that can't survive in the wild.

There is a lot of behind the scenes research that is done at zoos. I've been to some really nice ones and one that made me sad. I do however boycott circuses.

There are many zoos that treat their animals humanely, keep them in as natural of a habitat as possible, and are the only reason why those animals aren't extinct.

This.  

I always find it's a better experience. It's still a little sad, because you know that the animals can never go back to the wild.  But at least in this case, there's a reason and people are able to learn from the unfortunate circumstances that put the animals there.

Have you seen the documentary "Blackfish"? It will make you boycott Seaworld and traditional zoos.
