How did zoos come about?
The creation of zoos actually came about for human entertainment and a way to show off exotic animals. They were called menageries and are mostly for royalty and people who could afford it. (it does start off on the wrong foot, I must admit) But zoos main purpose now is for conservation and rescue of the animals so I would say they’ve come a long way in improving.
