Description

Zoos remain controversial amongst some conservationists. Some believe that they are cruel and should be closed and that the money saved should be used to protect species in their natural habitats. Others believe that this is impractical and argue that, via breeding programmes, zoos conserve animals that would otherwise be in danger of becoming extinct.

This Environmental Studies Factsheet explains:
• Genetic variability of the semen.
• Estimating elephant population.

This Factsheet includes typical exam questions.
