Ladies and gentlemen,
We are witnessing the sixth mass extinction of species on Earth. Scientists agree that we are all responsible for this process.
We are also the most threatened by the domino effect, where the death of one species leads to the annihilation of others that depend on it. That cycle that cannot be broken and we already cut the branch we are sitting on. Uncontrolled growth of the human population, greedy consumptionism, tourism, destruction and occupation of natural habitats, trade of endangered wildlife, poaching, pollution and the climate crisis are problems that require our immediate response. Our health and life depend on biodiversity.
Zoos are a hope to slow down the extinction process. They maintain reserves of species of animals in case of their complete extinction in the natural environment.
