Paragraph 1


There are a number of reasons why it is wrong to put wild animals in zoos. Firstly, wild animals are not domisticated (domesticated) and should be free to rome (roam) around their natural habitate (habitat). Putting them in confinned (confined) spaces in zoos means that they will never be able to return to the wild again. Secondly, animals have natural instinkts (instincts) which they develop from living in the wild and pass down to their own off spring (offspring). These instincts will gradually fade and never return if they are kept in capivity (captivity).

Paragraph 2

On the other hand, keeping animals in zoos does serve some useful porposes (purposes). Zoos can serve a way to protect indangered (endangered) species. Many species are facing dwinling (dwindling) numbers due to the distruction (destruction) of their habitat or from disease so by keeping them in zoos, they are protected from extinction. Another reason why zoos can be useful is that they can serve as a way to educate the public. Most people will never come into contract (contact) with such a range of species in their lives. So, by having zoos, people are able to experiance (experience) seeing them and also learn about them. Hopefully this will help with the pretection (protection) of animals in the future as people will learn to appreciate animals.



  1. Dear, Liz

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the help.
    The results came in and I am happy to find out that I have surpassed the expected score.
    Before learning about the IELTS, I had undergone the TOEFL twice to find out that their exam does not accurately assess the level of language proficiency of examines.
    I think the IELTS should be promoted more so other international students don’t have to go through the same experience as me.

    Thank you.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
