Resolution 5: Animals should not be kept in captivity

PROPOSITION (FOR)

OPPOSITION (AGAINST)

  1. Introduction

Zoos are premises for the captivity of animals, often in urban areas where many of the animals would not otherwise be found, with the intention of studying the animals and displaying them to the public at large. Do animals want to be kept in captivity? Certainly not, because there is nothing better than freedom. Therefore, animals should not be kept in captivity



  1. Present the 1st argument

Our first argument to affirm the resolution is that animals will never be as happy as they would be in the wild. This is true because they long to roam in the long grass, they long to chase other animals, and they long to play in large groups. How can animals be happy being kept in a confined and isolated space? All day long just waiting to be fed and then go to sleep, it's so boring. Therefore, no matter how we may try to replicate their surrounding in a zoo, we will never achieve the full result.







  1. Introduction

Around the world, wildlife is in decline. According to a recent report by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), nearly two-thirds of the world's wild animals have been lost in the past 50 years and now 38,500 species are threatened with extinction. The excessive involvement of humans in the natural environment has threatened the survival of many animals. Therefore, animals should be kept in captivity to protect them from extinction.





  1. Refute the opponent’s 1st argument

Your team said that animals will never be as happy as they would be in the wild. That may be true, but I think we cannot measure animal happiness and we cannot really say that they would be best left in the wild. Because at least with animal captivity comes animal security, food is always on the table and there’s free medical. Therefore, rather than banning zoos, we should ensure that relevant safety measures are in place to ensure that these animals are as well looked after as possible.



  1. Present the first argument

Our first argument to oppose this resolution is that keeping animals in zoos can stop them becoming extinct in the wild. This is true because there are many species of animals that have escaped extinction through captivity. For example, in 1988, there were only about 30 California Falcons left in the wild, they were captured and brought to the San Diego Zoo and after 4 years, the number of California Falcons increased tenfold, to 330 in 1992. Therefore, the zoos have been pivotal in breeding new generations and protecting a gene pool while the animal is re-introduced into a more natural environment.

  1. Refute the opponent’s 1st argument

Your team said that keeping animals in zoos can stop them from becoming extinct in the wild. That may be true but I think we can't be sure that captivity keeps animals from becoming extinct. Because conservationists have also failed to breed many types of animals including the Pinta tortoise, West African Black Rhino, etc. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that animals in captivity will receive superior protection as in the wild.

  1. Present the 2nd argument

Our second argument to support the resolution is that captivity negatively affects the psyche of animals. That is the case because they are inevitably confined in unnaturally small spaces, and are kept from the public by cages and bars. They suffer psychological distress, often displayed by abnormal or self-destructive behavior. Aquatic animals do not have enough water, birds are prevented from flying away by having their wings clipped and being kept in aviaries. Therefore, we will see sad animals with slow footsteps instead of running around in the grasslands







  1. Refute the opponent’s 2nd argument

Your team said that captivity negatively affects the psyche of animals. That is an interesting idea but we can't tell what animals are thinking and how they feel. Because some animals are very intelligent, they can fake death to fool us or they are sick and need care that's why sometimes we see negative emotions of animals. Therefore, without seeing the fatigue and sadness of the animals, we cannot know they need medical intervention.

  1. Present the 2nd argument

The next argument of my group to oppose the resolution that human understanding can help animals in the future. That is true because we can entrust the future of animals to young people, taking them to the zoo and telling them how important these animals are and how they need to be preserved. When being educated like this, young people will have a more realistic view of the importance of animals, they will never do things that are harmful to animals in the future. Therefore, there will be no more animal extinctions caused by humans.

  1. Refute the opponent’s viewpoint

Your team said that human understanding can help animals in the future. I disagree because there are many ways to educate young people about the importance of conserving animals, not just by confining them. Because could it be that the best solution is to confine animals for educational purposes only? Nowadays, people don't have much free time because most of them spend their time at school. So how many people go to the zoo regularly? Therefore, I don't think it's a good way to help conserve animals.

  1. Present the 3rd argument

Our second argument to support this resolution is that film censorship reduces the download of bad images and is more appropriate for all ages. This is true because we can comfortably choose a movie to watch in public without having to be annoyed when the movie has hot or violent scenes. Kids will have the right programs to watch and their parents won't have to worry about they'll be watching depraved things. Or in adolescence, the situation of learning to imitate movies and causing social evils will be reduced. This shows how important censorship is.







  1. Refute the opponent’s 3rd argument

Your group says that censorship can reduce the load of evils and is appropriate for all ages. This is probably true but I disagree because removing censorship will help more developed countries like South Korea, the US, and other developed countries have removed censorship. They just set up a committee to classify movies suitable for different ages. In fact, Korean cinema has made great progress when removing film censorship. Cinema, like another work of art, is a reflection and criticism of society. Already a voice of social criticism, there is a need for freedom. Criticism is valuable to help better society, so in developed countries, most cultures are free to create. Film censorship is not right, it makes the movie market become a market for producing safe, low-color films. Therefore, it is difficult to make a colorful, breakthrough, and international work.

  1. Present the 3rd argument

The third argument of my group is to oppose the resolution is that all in all with the ongoing global threats to the environment it’s hard for me to see zoos as anything other than being essential to the long-term survival of numerous species. That is true because not just in terms of protecting them and breeding them for reintroduction, but to learn about them to aid those still in the wild, as well as to educate and inform the public about these animals and their world: to pique their interest so that they can assist or at least accept the need to be more environmentally conscious. Sure there is always scope for improvement, but these benefits are critical to many species and potentially at least, the world as a whole, and the animals so well kept and content, that I think there can be few serious objections to the concept of good zoos what they can do. This is important because without them, the world would be, and would increasingly become, a much poorer place.

  1. Refute the opponent’s 3rd view point.

Your team said that all in all with the ongoing global threats to the environment it’s hard for me to see zoos as anything other than being essential to the long-term survival of numerous species. I disagree because the existence of the animal world has a significant impact on the balance of the ecosystem, maintaining a healthy living environment for humans. Because the arrangement of the natural world will assume the meaningful existence of a certain species. There are many creatures with the role of assessing the environment such as falcons and eagles, which are gradually decreasing in number due to exposure to the toxic chemical DDT, which interferes with reproduction. Some species also play a prophetic role in predicting the ability to change habitats when unexpected natural disasters occur. Therefore, when you lock them up, they will not fully promote their instinct.

  1. Make conclusion

In conclusion, the protection of animal species, especially wild animals, including those that are in danger of extinction, is becoming increasingly urgent. Therefore, more than ever, along with the strengthening of crime suppression, strictly handling violators to control, prevent and promptly handle acts of trafficking, transporting, storing, etc. illegal wildlife species and products from wild animals, it is necessary to further promote information and communication work to raise awareness of the social community on this issue.







  1. Make conclusion

In short, the nature of animals is wild, it should live and develop naturally. Animals will grow better if they live in the world where they were born in. We humans do not force them to live with us in such an artificial environment because of our own preferences, this is not good for animals.
