    "Choosing zoos as a means for species preservation, in addition to being
    expensive and of dubious effectiveness, has serious ethical problems. Keeping
    animals in zoos harms them, by denying them freedom of movement and
    association, which is important to social animals, and frustrates many of
    their natural behavioral patterns, leaving them at least bored, and at worst
    seriously neurotic. While humans may feel there is some justifying benefit
    to their captivity (that the species is being preserved, and may someday
    be reintroduced into the wild), this is no compensating benefit to the
    individual animals. Attempts to preserve species by means of captivity have
    been described as sacrificing the individual gorilla to the abstract Gorilla
    (i.e., to the abstract conception of the gorilla)."
