Zoos save many wild animals that were removed from privet owners. Those animals lived in terrible conditions like small cages, without proper medical care, sometimes starving. Zoos give them second chance. But I believe zoos must provide enclosures where animals feel happy and healthy. Wild animals that were born in captivity will never survive in a wild, zoos are their only chance.
