Zoo Industry Water Supply And Management
2. You can argue that the water was made for humans, since the water is coming from city pipes we are subjecting wildlife in captivity to humanized products, including their water
3. In order to receive fresh and clean water one would have to drain the pool and start over again, since filters could never clean the tank walls.
4. Human divers often jump into the tanks and large bodies of water to clean the walls and mirrors, subjecting the animals to human germs and health risks because of the products used in the cleaning supplies and what is naturally occurring on human skin and human products, in the wild these animals would never be in contact with humans.
5. The smells of the water is not normal, in the wild animals are able to swim around and the currents are naturally pushing new water in and old water out, but in captivity the animals and the water have nowhere to go, so the animals are constantly breathing in and swimming in water that they themselves do not want to be swimming in
6. The water is tested for "health" levels, but if you check out the AZA website the nonhuman animal care handbooks are only supplied to a few species, for example: The safe water levels for a polar bear would be considered the same safety levels of an alligator in some cases, which just is not true at all.
7. Not the correct water temperature, because water is never a constant and these animals swim for miles and miles in the wild, having the whole tank be one single temperature is just not real.
None of it is real.
It's all fake.
All of it
