Although people may not think that zoos are very important or helpful in humanity's efforts to understand animals and nature, they really are very critical to human and animal health, scientific development, and nature and human connections. Humans depend on animals for observations of disease, health, the ways people and animals interact with each other, and how all forms of nature connect with each other. Without the study and observations of animals, we would not have as much information on the different kinds of wildlife or understand the unique ways nature and wildlife interact with each other and humankind.
Although animals should be granted freedom and be allowed to do what they choose, they, along with the rest of their species of animals, depend on how effectively experts can study and classify the information they gain from research on animals as it allows humans to create better environments and improve their habitats.

Animals keep changing through time, and it is important that humans stay up to date about the different adaptations and the evolution of some animals. Research and past information can help us tell the differences and similarities of these animals from the past. As of now the world is changing very fast. Technology, smart phones, and ways to make life easier are changing quickly. Our environment is the same. Animals will soon breed into new hybrid species and changes will take place. Research is the only way we have to keeping ourselves up to date about how animals and wildlife are changing and being impacted by environmental changes. Zoos are critical to conducting this research.
Lastly, the humans you see everyday and hear about all around the world are not the only life forms on earth. Animals such as giraffes, lions, tigers, or other animals that we long to see could be waiting for visitors at the zoo. The zoo is not only for sight seeing, but also for people to find out about new things they have never heard about. There are a lot of common facts about every day pets such as dogs or cats, but imagine all the information available at zoos. A zoo brings all of us tranquility and gets us closer and closer to nature and wildlife.
Although people may not realize it, zoos help humans bond with nature, experts study and observe different animal evolutions, and people everywhere improve their health. It is also pretty interesting to see animals not common in everyday human life. Now that you have heard about all the interesting benefits provided by having animals in the zoo, I hope you will realize why zoos are important and we depend on them!
