Living in Zoos

    by | June 30, 2011

    A day at a zoo can be quite memorable for the zoo visitors.  But what about the animals that live at the zoo?

    Historians believe that the first zoo was in Ancient Egypt.  It was a private collection of animals that were naturally found in Africa.  Today, there are many different kinds of zoos in the world.  Some are visited by millions of people each year.  While other have far fewer visitors.  Some zoos specialize in conservation and providing veterinary care to injured wild animals.  The question we ask in this TP4K is “Should wild animals live in zoos?” and “How do zoos create a place where animals can be healthy and content?”
