TOEFL Essay Topic 153 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A zoo has no useful purpose. Use specific reasons and examples to explain your answer.
A zoo has useful purpose.
People may say that a zoo is a useless place. Other people may argue that there are many ways to use a zoo. In my opinion, I am for the idea that zoo is useful place for us. There are several reasons to support my opinion.
First of all, we can learn much about animals at a zoo. A zoo provides us much knowledge about animals, and we can deepen our recongnition about living creatures when we go to zoo. When I was a student of 13th grade, I was about to fail the biology class in my high school. Then, in order not to fail the class, I went to the zoo everyday in my neighborhood. I learned much about how animals perspire, what they eat to live, or so on. In the end, thanks for the zoo, I could avoid failing the class. This example clearly exemplifies my argument.
Second, we can preserve precious species at a zoo. Zoo has a purpose to preserve species which is going to be extinct. At a zoo in Sado island, My father saw Toki which is one of bird, and is in danger of extinction four years ago. In Japan, it is said that Toki may be extinct in the near future. So in order not to eliminate Toki from the earth, a zoo in Sado island is now preserving the bird, and nursing carefully. Because of the dedicated preserving, Toki is still on the earth now, and my father could watch the beautiful figures of Toki. This example strongly illustrate my idea.
People may say that a zoo has only purposes to amuze its visiters. But, in several ways as I mentioned above, a zoo is also needed to fulfill the pragmatically purposes. So, in conclusion, I definitely agree with the idea that a zoo has very useful purposes.
