More stories of kind mentoring in a new home come courtesy of another elephant rescue site, this one in Kenya, where orphans are raised to be reintroduced as adults into the wild. This is a big adjustment, not often attempted for animals who have lived for some length of time in a captive or domesticated setting, but the new releases are helped by older elephants who have gone through the same thing themselves (especially important in welcoming them into a herd that is not their blood kin). In a in , head keeper Joseph Sauni recounts how an adventurous little one named Irima ran away to try out his independence early. After a few days, a trumpety clamor was heard at the gate. “Irima must have told the group that he still needed his milk and orphan family and wanted to go back,” says Sauni, so Edo, a graduate of the center, walked Irima home. “The keepers opened the gate, and Edo escorted Irima all the way back to the stockades. Edo drank some water from the well, ate some food, and took off again. Mission accomplished.”
Keeping animals in zoos are not very bad, though. The manager of the zoo can earn money by the facilities inside the zoo and the tickets so that they can povide more mordern facilities not just for human but also for the animals.

arguments for and against keeping animals ..
I'm not in favor or against zoos , but seeing the level of urbanization and the destruction of their territories , would be in favor of a zoo that helps the reproduction of species in captivity as long as these animals are well cared for and treated .
