Be a better selfie this International Tiger Day

Be a better selfie this International Tiger Day


Scroll through Instagram or swipe through Tinder and it won’t be long before you come across a tiger selfie. But one quick holiday snap can mean a lifetime of suffering for tigers.

This International Tiger Day (Friday 29 July), World Animal Protection is calling on travellers to be part of the solution by staying away from tiger tourism venues that allow interaction, such as selfies with tigers or tiger cub feeding.


Education is key. It’s not that tourists don’t care, the vast majority of travellers don’t want to contribute to cruel wildlife tourism but it’s not always easy to spot.

You can be part of the solution by sharing the video using the buttons below – it exposes the cruelties behind tiger selfies.

You can also play your part by pledging to be a ‘better selfie’ by committing to avoid wildlife entertainment venues.

By doing this you’ll be helping to protect wild animals, like tigers, from the cruelties of the tourism industry.

Together, we can help to end the suffering of wildlife.
