captivity for animals is hard topic to argue about. I have extremely mixed feelings. I don’t think its right to capture animals from the sea, from the dessert, from anywhere and then put them in a small tank or cage. How would you like it if you were captured, taken away from your family, then stuffed in a box? sometimes alone, or maybe with strangers.
but at the same time, if parents stop taking their children to aquariums and zoos the children will never make the connection we are all feeling for these poor animals. they will never know some animals, how they live, which ones are dangerous and which ones are extremely friendly. some may never even get to see any animals besides the birds outside.
another thought: animals that are bread in captivity would die in the wild. you have to think of that also.
