Zoos breed animals in an effort to keep drawing in paying visitors—yet often, there’s nowhere to put the offspring as they grow. Breeding programs serve no true conservation purpose because giraffes and other animals born in zoos are rarely, if ever, returned to their natural habitats. PETA urges everyone who genuinely cares about animals to avoid zoos and instead donate to campaigns that actually protect animals in their native habitats.
