Origami With Kids: Make an Origami Giraffe •

Our zoo sort of rocks. It’s beautiful and lovely, and the animals seem like they’re in relatively large-enough habitats. My love for zoos far outweighs my sadness for the animals being removed from their natural habitats.

I feel like since we are obviously the greatest threat to animals, the more we can learn about, and understand animals, the greater the chance we will be moved to help the animals that are living out in the wild.

Zoos help people feel compassion and excitement and love for these animals, therefore I am pro-zoo.

Monologue aside, we visited our zoo the other day and I was giddy when I saw the giraffes- they are up there in my top 5 favorite animals, and they were all cute and frolicking on the morning we visited.
