I think a lot of animals are captive raised and bred. Zoos are doing their best to keep some animals from going extinct.

Would you rather many of them be in the wild and fall victim to poachers and the black market?

I mean, most zoo animals are captively bred and raised, and wouldn’t survive in the wild, especially with habitat loss and all that, so I don’t see it as a bad thing necessarily depending on the enclosures

The animals have probably lived longer in the zoo than they would have in the wild. Also they get fed and treated well in the zoo. Another good point is that its more convenient to go to a see all the animals in a controlled and safe way rather than exploring a jungle for example.
