World Animal Protection and LUSH join forces to promote animal friendly tourism

23 May 2016

A life entertaining tourists is no life for our wildlife. Across the world, at least 550,000 wild animals are used in the tourist entertainment industry.

They suffer at every stage of this inherently cruel business and endure lifelong misery in barren captive conditions that cannot meet their needs. The demand for wildlife holiday experiences is driving this cruel industry.

LUSH has joined forces with World Animal Protection across Australia and New Zealand to support our Wildlife. Not Entertainers campaign.  

This week, all proceeds (minus GST) from the sale of their Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion will go towards moving the world to protect animals. LUSH will also encourage in-store and online customers to pledge to be an animal friendly traveller on their next holiday.

By purchasing a LUSH Charity Pot and pledging to be an animal friendly tourist, consumers are helping to end the demand for wildlife used for the tourist entertainment industry.

Australians love animals, and want to experience them when they travel. Many tourists simply don’t realize that wild animals don’t interact with people because they want to, but because they are forced to – only cruelty keeps them here.

Education is key as tourists aren’t aware of what goes on behind the scenes. Whether it’s posing for a photograph with an animal, visiting a live animal show or riding a wild animal, reducing demand from people on holiday means the suffering of these animals for our entertainment will end.

Together we have the power to end the cruel wildlife entertainment industry.
