Much of the time. It’s not necessarily a Seaworld situation. Yeah a lot of animals don’t even have habitats anymore anyway. So zoos are just giving them a home. Even if people come to see them nearly everyday, its better then being kicked out of their habitat eventually by man. The funds from zoos are often used to feed the animals anyway (most zoos are non profit they cant use that money for people) if you pay to go to the zoo you are paying to keep those animals alive Zoos also educate people about animals, allowing for people to fall in love with the weird and wonderful. They help promote habitat preservation and putting a stop to poaching. Please don’t dismiss zoos, they’re not the same places as they used to be in the 1800s, or even the mid 1900s. So while Zoos are absolutely miles better than they were historical, there are still many serious issues. In terms of education, while I totally get why most people believe that zoos teach people (children especially) about how to protect animals and their habitats and are great places of education, this is not actually the case. In reality viewing captive animals in zoos only teaches people how animals react to boredom, depression, and stress in captive situations. The most effective methods of education in zoos come via presenting videos, documentaries, interactive modules, graphic displays, and computer simulations. which all show animals in their natural environments and do not require any animals to actually be kept in zoos. In terms of the work Zoos to in regards to species conservation and habitat preservation, zoos really are not effective, especially compared to other conservation and preservation work. While there are zoos that do good conservation work, most of the significant conservation work is not from zoos but other organizations that work with wildlife and natural habitats. Most animals in captivity are not even classified as endangered, with the priority of Zoos being in getting hold of animals popular with visitors, rather than those who face extinction. When it comes to breeding programs (and breeding animals in captivity aren’t the best way to help in conservation)   zoos do spend plenty of money on these programs however half of the animals being bred by Zoos are not classed as endangered in the wild and 25% are not threatened species but ones popular with visitors. It’s also actually massively more expensive to keep animals captive in zoos than to protect equivalent numbers of them in the wild! When it comes to the research, few Zoos actually support meaningful scientific research (with fewer employing scientists with full-time research jobs) and of those that do employ scientists its common for these scientists to study free-living animals rather than those within the zoo. Due to the nature of any research that does take place in zoos, the results of this research also generates little information about how to best conserve species in the wild as studies of captive animals have limited benefits to animals in the wild and animals brought up in captivity are less likely to survive in the wild if reintroduced as they often don’t have the natural behaviors needed for survival in the wild. More effective methods of habitat preservation and species conservations would be a multipronged approach tackling habitat loss and climate change, investing in conservation programs in the wild, education, working with local communities, seriously addressing poaching etc. and also to move away from the Zoo model towards more ethical and effective models of species conservation.  Just a few of the other ethical issues with Zoos include surplus animals, who, when grow older, and are less attractive to patrons, will often be sold or killed. Animals who breed frequently also are sometimes sold to game farms and ranches where hunters pay to kill them and other surplus animals are sometimes sold to roadside zoos,, private individuals, animal dealers, or to laboratories for experimentation purposes. The animals not sold often end up being fed to other zoo animals. In terms of the health of these captive animals, many develop health conditions and mental health problems such as Zoochosis. Of course, a major problem with zoos as well is that the animals who live there are kept in enclosures that don’t allow them to live their lives in a natural way and don’t compare with the natural habitat the animals were meant to be in. Zoo animals have to spend day after day, week after week, year after year in the exact same enclosure. This makes their lives very monotonous. Take elephants, for example, elephants in the wild, are used to traveling many miles a day in herds of about ten related adults and their offspring but in zoos are usually kept in pairs or even isolated in incredibly small enclosures compared to what they are used to in the wild. Elephants kept in zoos often show many signs of being mental distress and the average lifespan of elephants in zoos is around 16-18 years, instead of the 50-70 years they can live in the wild. I’m just going to copy paste your response when people ask me what I’m going to school for. I’m very pro zoo and I want animals in their natural habitat just as much. This is genuinely quite an interesting discussion.

 TO DO LIST
corbinalexanderwealthguidance:
CORBIN ALEXANDER WEALLTH
GUIDANCE:  POSTED 05/06/2018
STARTING OUT FROM SCRATCH – POST #1 IN MY SERIES
BUDGETING:
50/30/20/RULE:
For the person already living life, this is an essential
rule of thumb:
-         
50% to Needs:  utilities, rent, food, car insurance (never buy a car on credit/payments and be  required to pay collision coverage:  only buy a used, 3-8 year old, Honda/Kia/Toyota for the best value/bang for your buck),
gas, clothes allowance, etc.  Essentials needed to live!
-         
20% to Savings
 Investment:   used to pay bank
loans/student loans, monthly deposits into a retirement account and an investment
account, credit card payments (pay off the entire balance each month and not
just the minimum payment to avoid paying interest on interest = that’s what
eats you alive causing you to NEVER
pay off the balance(s)) and never buy stuff from Fingerhut/Rent-A-Center or the
like…..the interest on this stuff is outrageous and you pay 3x-5x what the item
is actually worth in the end – if you ever get to the end of the payments!
-         
30% to Wants:  vacations (limit one per year – do day trips
for the other week taken on paid vacation benefits) and future “Wants” such as
saving for a house:  if you need the
monies in less than 5 years, then bank it – if you need the monies in over 8
years, then invest it; that is the industry rule of thumb when it comes to “Wants”.
Two methods to keep you on track:
 -         
The spread sheet method:  this is where you track your budget in MS
Excel.
 -    The envelope method:  this is where you assign envelopes labeled by
each expense.   
EMERGECY FUND:  
This where you have a bank savings
account holding a minimum of six months of expenses to pay “all” your monthly bills in the event of
a job lose or an illness:  you are NEVER to dip into this unless you are
in a dire straight situation.  
Establish this fund FIRST before all other suggestions are followed.
 
SAVINGS  INVESTMENT:   
-         
Start saving for an emergency fund first.
-         
Do not
use the Overdraft protection feature on your bank debit card = avoid getting
into the habit of paying Overdraft charges over and over again!  But do have it on the account – in the event
of an emergency = like your car breaks down, etc. and avoid using a credit card
and carry a balance.
-         
Start an investment account at Ally.com/invest
and invest in my Model ETF Portfolio that I’ll outline at a later date…stay tuned!
-         
Start investing in my ”ALL PURPOSE” Model Mutual Fund Portfolio: starting in your mid-50’s/early
60’s.
-         
Start investing in my designated Model Mutual
Fund 80+ Portfolio in your 80’s; exact allocation percentages to also be
revealed at a later date!

CREDIT
CARDS/BANKING MANAGEMENT:
 -         
Establish a credit history at 18 years old
before working a full-time 9-5 or going to college:  now is the time to obtain a pre-paid debt
card through Capital One.com or a
similar lender.   And do not forget to
get a small personal loan ($1,000.00 minimum) at a local bank using a co-signer to qualify for the loan.
 As you SLOWLY
establish a credit history; apply for a no-fee/low credit limit card through Discover.com and/or Capital One.com.
 
HAVE
YOU RUN UP YOUR CREDIT CARDS TO THE MAX AND DROWNING IN DEBT OVERALL? –
CONSIDER CLAIMING BANKRUPTCY AND START OVER – JUST BE CAREFUL; DON’T SCREW UP
AGAIN LIKE THE LAST TIME.
 
-         
Earn interest in an interest-bearing savings or
CD account:
               Not all
banks are created equal; which is why most are banking wrong:   
               BANK
OF AMERICA:  This is a “fee city”
bank.  You name it, they have a fee
attached
TD
BANK:  This is a bank with convoluted
morals.  Good luck banking in this
environment; more horseshit then you can shake a stick
at!  
 -   If your balance falls below $100.00 at TD at any
given time during the month; they hit you with a $15.00 low balance fee
($180.00 a year!).
You
are better off going to a local bank or a federal credit union for your banking
needs.

America, Anaconda, and Bernie Sanders: Bernie Sanders @SenSanders There's no state where a full-time minimum wage worker can afford a one-bedroom apartment at the fair market rent. That's unacceptable. 4/10/17, 3:51 PM 5,379 RETWEETS 14.2K LIKES pidgepitchu: strict-constitutionalist: constitutioncutie: Minimum wage: $7.25 $7.25 x 40 hour full time work week: $290 $290 x 4 weeks per month: $1,160 In every Southern state (didn’t have time to look at the rest of the country) you can find some sort of studio apartment for around $500 per month, sometimes less than that. Why bother lying about something so easily disproven?  Because Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t going to fact check him, and they’ll ignore any contrary evidence that’s presented to them anyways. Things like this really tick me off and It’s not political or anything but it’s the fact that you think all that money is there. Here’s what I mean; That weekly check comes to, according to you, 290. Most places DO NOT pay for your half hour lunch that is required by law. So your beginning number was wrong. $7.25 x 7.5 hours a day x 5 days a week only gets you $271.88.  Most people in America get paid bi-weekly, so let’s double it to get the budget. $543.75. That’s GROSS, not NET. Out of that comes anywhere between 10% and 15% taxes depending on state so we’ll low ball it at 10%. Automatically down to $489.38 a pay check. Now health insurance. Usually anywhere from 70-100 a pay check for the cheapest plans. Again, we’ll low ball and go $70. So now we have $419.39 a paycheck. x 2  = $839.  Eight hundred thirty nine dollars. A MONTH. But again, you seem to think that’s fair. So let’s proceed. You say rent is $500? Okay. This person now has $339 left to buy groceries for the whole month, pay utilities, car payment, car insurance, and gas money to get to work.  Those are the bare needs. You have to eat. You have to pay for heat, water, garbage removal, gas and or electricity because apartments do not always include things and rarely all of the above. Most cities in America do not have public transportation. Mine doesn’t despite the fact that our population is over 15,000 people, not counting a taxi. If you have a car, you have to pay that. If you have a car, legally you have to have car insurance. You have to pay that. You have to have gas in that car to get to work to make that money. Now if you can tell me you can get all of that out of $339 you’re lying. You are so focused on rent that you aren’t thinking about everything else people have to pay for. Rent was an example. This is a breakdown of the budget you gave me and it’s not possible to live off that in 2017 America.  And BECAUSE this person makes over $800 a month, they probably won’t qualify for financial aid or food stamps. $800 is the line in my state where they won’t help you. No food stamps, financial aid, or government housing if you make more than $800 a month.  Why does it bother you that people deserve to live above the poverty line?

If you have a car, legally you have to have car insurance. You have to pay that. You have to have gas in that car to get to work to make that money.
Now if you can tell me you can get all of that out of $339 you’re lying.
You are so focused on rent that you aren’t thinking about everything else people have to pay for. Rent was an example. This is a breakdown of the budget you gave me and it’s not possible to live off that in 2017 America. 
And BECAUSE this person makes over $800 a month, they probably won’t qualify for financial aid or food stamps. $800 is the line in my state where they won’t help you. No food stamps, financial aid, or government housing if you make more than $800 a month. 
Why does it bother you that people deserve to live above the poverty line?
