FAQs > Animals Used for Entertainment âDonât zoos teach children important lessons about wildlife?â No, zoos claim to educate people about animals, but small enclosures do not allow animals to display their natural behaviors, and signs typically tell visitors little more than the names of the animals, where they can be found, and what they eat. Animalsâ normal behaviors are seldom discussedâmuch less observedâat zoos because their natural needs are rarely met in zoo environments. Many animals who live in large herds or family groups in the wild are kept alone or, at most, in pairs at zoos. Natural hunting and mating behaviors are virtually eliminated by regulated feeding and breeding regimens. Animals at zoos lack privacy and have little opportunity for mental stimulation or physical exercise. These conditions cause them to exhibit abnormal, self-destructive behaviors called zoochosis. Many zoo officials focus on profits rather than the well-being of the animals. A former director of the Atlanta Zoo once remarked that he was âtoo far removed from the animals; theyâre the last thing I worry about with all the other problems.â Zoos teach people that it is acceptable to keep animals in captivity, where they are bored, cramped, lonely, far from their natural homes, and at the mercy and whim of people.
Ontario SPCA - Humane Education They teach children how to be safer around dogs and that it is important to more about the animals, habitats, animal behaviour, endangered species, http://www.ospca.on.ca/he_ft.html
Extractions: Before becoming a full-time humane educator, I worked for a humane society performing a myriad of jobs, including (but not limited to) adoptions, media relations, and humane education. I was (and still am!) so happy to be working in the animal welfare field; it truly was a dream come true. Like many of you, I have a deep love of animals and I wanted to do as much as I could to assist in their protection.
Kids With H that can be used to teach information on endangered animals. Goal 2 Plan a webpage with fast facts about specific endangered animals. http://www.tcsc.k12.in.us/es/Animal Web Pages/kids_with_h.htm
Extractions: firstname.lastname@example.org Technology has become the new literacy of the 21st century. If students are to acquire the skills and attitudes needed to succeed in an ever-changing global environment, they must be immersed in all facets of technology and research methods. From data research and analysis to multimedia presentations, every child should be given appropriate opportunities to explore and use broad spectra of technology. To provide real examples for students and to inspire them to stretch their own potential, teachers must also make daily use of integrated technology in lesson delivery. Kids with H.E.A.R.T. is an exemplary model of teacher creativity and skill in using technology and library research skills to address core standards in literacy and science while expanding awareness of an important environmental concern. The technology enhanced lesson makes learning fun and exciting, and stimulates students to continue research and create projects of their own. Under topic related lesson plans, you will find examples of a PowerPoint presentation on endangered animals, fast fact pages with detailed information on specific animals, sample HyperStudio stacks, sample presentation boards, clay animations, live video footage, and downloadable rubrics. We invite you to view our Kids With H.E.A.R.T. project and hope that it enhances your classroom instruction.

Oregon Zoo Events endangered Farm animals One half of all goat, sheep and swine breeds face These livestock teach visitors about history, preservation and conservation. http://www.oregonzoo.org/Newsroom/presskits/endangered.htm
Extractions: One half of all goat, sheep and swine breeds face extinction. The same is true for one third of cattle and a quarter of horse breeds. These are startling numbers, considering the vast amounts of farmland and large quantities of livestock nationwide. Most of the breeds that are dying out are rare breeds that do not produce meat and fiber as quickly as newer breeds. However, they have their important part in the past, present and future of agriculture. about our zoo animals conservation education ... contact us

Many of these are protected in National Parks and wildlife sanctuaries in India. Many of the religions practised in India such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism teach a respect for life in all its forms and therefore people do not needlessly harm other living creatures around them. However the pressure of growing populations in various states of India has led the increasing need to use land for human habitation and agriculture leading to the reduced habitat of many endangered animals in wildlife sanctuaries. However the conservation movement has strong roots in India and awareness about preserving the environment and the rare and threatened species of animals, birds and reptiles that live in India is increasing. India Wildlife tours offers tours of the National Parks and Wildlife sanctuaries of India, where you can see some of the wonderful endangered animals, birds and reptiles of India.
