Not breeding, rehabiltation, and conservation zoos ~ which are the majority.

Mostly yes, but It depends on the zoo.

Not necessarily. Breeding zoos are preserving entire species.

It depends on the zoo, and if the animal truly cannot be safely released back into the wild. But the small areas have to be depressing and frustrating for the poor things stuck in zoos.

Mostly yes, but the way things are the only wild animals we have left will be in Zoo's. Due to mankind destroying everything. So a tiny part says no.
