Endangered animals

Endangered animals should be kept in zoos. Do you agree?

Polar bears are, for sure, one of the biggest victims affected by global warming. Their natural environment has been seriously threatened because of the melting of the polar ice caps, resulting in the isolation of this variety of bears.

“Their natural environment has been being seriously threatened because of the melting of the polar ice caps. “

Some of these bears have been looked after by sanctuaries or zoos and I have to admit that in this way, they have been gotten care, and an adequate food in order to make sure they will survive, at least until they can return back into a safe natural environment.

On the other hand, this kind of places are usually handled by volunteers (vets and qualified staff) as far as I know, and they usually work for free, and government aids to these centres are quite limited, so, this could turn out to be a big problem, despite their good intentions.

To sum up, it is fair to say –to my mind– that there should be more economic supports for shelters, sanctuaries and zoos in order to be able to get all the different tools that they need to help to endangered animals.
