We went on a field trip to Ueno zoo and the tokyo national museum for science class and Humanities class. In ueno zoo, we chose a animal to take notes about their natural habitat and their man-made habitat in the zoo.
What we did:
- We went to ueno zoo to find out about the animals man made environment.
The animal I chose was red pandas, and the cage was pretty small. The environment looked pretty natural, because it had a lot if trees and bamboo. I think there was about 2 red pandas in the cage. I don’t know if the red pandas looked happy because both of them were sleeping in the trees.
I think the reason we have zoos is because people can see animals that they usually can’t see often. I think IF I was one of the animals in the zoo, I would be happy because they give you food, a place to sleep, and things you need depending on the animal you are. To make the animals happier in the zoo, I think they should put in things that will make it more fun to live in the zoo. For example, when I saw the penguins, they just had a fake ice island and a pool around it, so they should maybe put in a water slide or something.
There are many zoos on earth, and I think we should visit them, because the money we pay for visiting the zoo is probably used for the animals in the zoo. I think it is the best to let the animals be free in its natural habitat/country, but I think having a few zoos is ok.
