🐡 Animals can be named by the public or by the staff at Zoo Boise.

00:12:30 Science Trek: Zoology explores the naming of animals based on taxonomic classification and scientists' fascination with them. The video also discusses Zoo Boise's efforts to protect endangered animals, such as lions and giraffes.

Animals are named based on taxonomic classification and the scientist who discovered the species.

Scientists have a strong interest in animals from a young age and choose to study them to contribute to animal welfare.

Zoo Boise is implementing conservation efforts and raising funds to protect endangered animals in the wild.

00:16:40 Zoos provide a great opportunity for young people to get involved in animal conservation. They can educate the public, raise money, and teach classes to help protect animals in the wild.

🦁 Zoos provide opportunities for teenagers to get involved in wildlife conservation and education.

Animals go extinct due to the destruction of their habitats, invasive species, pollution, and diseases.

Animals in zoos do not need to adapt since most of them are born in zoos, but there may be a transition period when animals are shipped to other zoos.

Komodo dragons are found only in Indonesia, specifically on four islands with Komodo Island being the main one.
