    • @Kolmorka Have you been to America? I've gone to Stuttgart zoo and a few smaller ones in Hessen and France and the quality is not even comparable to American zoos. Even theme parks in America have incredible conservation efforts and habitats. In Germany I've seen small castles attempt to bring tourists by locking animals in tiny cages. I as well prefer the sanctuary style like monkey mountain in the schwartzwald. The US just gets zoos right, except sea world with their orcas.

  • I love that the assumption starts at animals must be as if not more active than humans during the day, but that somehow they'd be capable of running around for 16 hours like a Disney movie. Like, sorry, are we applying our standards to animals or not? Because if we are, I'm fucking sure no human could 'run jump leap around and communicate with their own species' all fucking day every fucking day. Shit man, I can barely do one of those things for a couple hours a day. But we're supposed to believe animals, every fucking animal species in the world, are all gonna be able to do that?? Have you never owned a pet of any kind?? Like holy shit you just fucking try and play with them all day, they'll get sick of you super quick.

  • I went to something similar to sea world not long ago. The animals there werent bored, they were crazy. I mean, not all of them. I dont tthink a jellyfish can get crazy but a fucking sea lion can and they in fact seem lie they are crazy. I know I am a nobody that knows shit about animals. But I didnt go there with any assumption and I still got that feeling. Seeing animals going around in circles, doing the same thing and movements around an empty aquarium.. Idk, I felt bad for them. I know some animals are in danger and it is ok to do something about it but not all of them are actually in danger

  • Animals that are in display for entertainment and keept in captivity for their "protection", when they weren't in danger in the First place = Bad Sanctuaries that rescue animals that are so injured they can live in the wild anymore and need being taking care of = Good Don't side with Zoos Matt, we all know Sanctuaries are better.

  • on the bee thing. that's actually a common misconception. the whole thing about bees dying is only about the european honey bee (Apis mellifera) which is one out of 16000 species of bee who's population skyrocketed because of humans getting involved because that particular bee makes honey. In fact most other bee species are indigenous meaning they survive on their own and do not make honey. Those bees are the main polinators of pretty much every ecosystem. My point is when it comes to bees we shouldn't try to raise the honey bee population higher than it already is since those bees have often times been brought in to a new habitat as an invasive species which basically means they do what a local species does but are also supported by the humans since humans get honey out of them thriving causing them to take over that species' niche and essentially start killing them off.

  • Also Matt. If we was to release animals that arent native to the environment then they will fuck it up. It's like anaconda or pythons in southern us.

  • You're equivocating on the word "zoo". You've failed to distringuish between sanctuaries and zoos. So "zoos" are good when theyre sanctuaries. You also didn't mention that the leading cause of these endangered animals going exinct is caused by animal agriculture. It's like you're trying to advocate a vegan message without being vegan. You have a huge reach dude. Not going to lie I'm disappointed at the misinformation presented here.

  • Are they really helping the endangered species if they're not mass breeding them and releasing them into the wild instead of keeping them captive in insanely small enclosures to pay for the CEO's of these zoos who make millions of dollars? Also you can go to Africa and see wild animals and go to the forest as well etc. There are wild tours in the world if you want to see animals. Lets be honest. Profit is a zoo's number one priority, weather it is classified as a non profit or not. The Hillary foundation is a non profit but Hillary is nearly a billionaire. Yes there is some good that comes from zoo's but not enough to justify them. Zoos should be strictly wildlife sanctuary's with miles of space for the animals.

  • There used to be a Zoo-Attraction in in the second biggest city Bulgaria the ones like in the 80-90 terrible conditions for animals it was closed in the 1999 because of the animal rights movement most of the animals who would have been able to adapt to life in the wild again were released in the wild (boars, birds,elks... this type of stuff). Others were moved to a modern Zoo in the capital and are now taken care of and are healthy. Zoos are nonprofit and a TV host is actually the sponsor that pays for the bills to take care of the Lion/es in the zoo XD he actually got to name it witch was cool. ZOOS ARE NOT BAD!!!

Just wanted to say most if not all he pointed out about the organization is correct, and they’re an awesome place to rack up volunteer hours if you are willing to go through the process of applying and interviewing. If you love animals it’s a great place to be. Volunteering or not. They care. Plenty of zoos don’t but they really do.

  • I think you should make more vids like this. You tackle a really important issue with social media influences. I think a lot of these news stories get lost in traditional news outlets because no one knows who to trust anymore. It seems like every major news org has an agenda so I feel like people of this generation don't even watch because who knows if they are getting the whole story. Its why shows like Patriot Act on Netflix and the John Oliver show are so popular because the audience can see their investigation process, much like how you said something and then backed it up by finding the correct source information. Good job Matt! I hope you do more of this!
