Why is keeping animals in captivity good?

Keeping animals in captivity is good for conservation.

Are animals better off in zoo?

No, they are not, animals in captivity normally live shorter lives because staying in captivity they get lazy knowing that their meal come to them because the people who work at the zoo will bring it to them normally and so next time you go to the zoo have a look at them are they being lazy and laying down or are they chasing their own food? - ignore above answer, animals in captivity live longer due to constant food supply and less stress. zoos and wildlife parks are committed to enrichment programs which aims to match the natural behaviour of the animal that would be found in the wild. however in my opinion wildlife parks are much better than zoos and animals should only be placed in captivity if endangered in the wild and strong breeding programs are set up to help the populations.

There are those who agree and those who don't. The don'ts would argue that zoo's are a false environment that cause undue mental and physical sufferingand the animals would be better off in the wild even if the ultimate outcome was extinction through diminishing habitat, disease and predation. Those who agree with zoo's would argue that endangered animals can be bred, studied and treated safely in captivity and returned, disease free, to the wild in viable numbers to repopulate habitats.i agree!

Tortoises and turtles held in captivity can pick up diseases and spread them to wild animals. The captive animals live a fairly stress-free life so are able to fend off the diseases.
