What are the benefits of having a (national) zoo? 1. Whether it’s an endangered species that’s been smuggled illegally into the country or some mapepire that decided to take up residence in your home, a place exists that will safely and humanely house the animals.
2. Children learn so much about animals by visiting zoos.
3. We biology majors also find quite an inexpensive and safe location to do some research on animals, even animals not native to our country.
4. In some countries, zoos are the reason why some animals haven’t gone totally extinct.
