Be an animal friendly traveller
Wild animals belong in the wild.
Across the world, wild animals are captured, taken from their natural habitats or bred in captivity, and suffer a lifetime of cruelty and abuse.
Whether it is riding elephants, taking selfies with tigers, or performing dolphin shows, these activities can cause lifelong suffering for wild animals.
Some are beaten into submission, deprived of food and water or trapped in concrete cages.
Why? People love to see animals when they are on holiday.
And because demand for animals in the entertainment industry is so high, these animals continue to be used and abused for profit in ever increasing numbers.
Please pledge to be an animal friendly traveller, and together, we can show the travel industry just how many people won’t stand for wild animal cruelty.
Travel companies around the world profit from some of the cruellest types of wildlife tourist attractions on earth.
The demand for wildlife entertainment attractions has been growing globally. We know that people visit wildlife tourism attractions because they love animals and many are completely unaware of the suffering that occurs behind the scenes.
Wild animals belong in the wild, not entertainment.
Whether it’s posing for a photograph with an animal, visiting live animal shows or riding wild animals, increasing demand from people on holiday means these animals will continue to suffer for our entertainment.
