Animals in tourism – level 1

10-10-2014 07:00

This news is about animals. Not all animals are happy. Some must live with people. They must perform at shows.

People like these shows. However, they don’t know everything about the animals. The animals often suffer. Some people are not nice to them. The animals are taken from their mothers. They are often lonely.

This is a big problem. The animals must be helped.

Difficult words: perform (do something which is interesting), suffer (to go through bad times), lonely (when you are sad because you are alone).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you like circuses, zoos or any other places with animal attractions?
