Wild animals held in captivity for entertainment are deprived of everything they need to thrive, including the ability to roam freely, select mates, form social structures within their natural habitats, and the basic autonomy to make choices for themselves. Many wild animals are callously stolen from their natural habitats. Others are victims of illegal trafficking. Breeding programs perpetuate the cycle of animal exploitation as they make it easier for zoos to obtain and purchase animals. Captive-bred animals are almost never returned to the wild and are simply kept in captivity for profit.
Regardless of its size or credentials, no facility will ever provide wild animals with the life they would have experienced in the wild. Please take action today!
