Sign up to the Wildlife Selfie Code
Most tourists who take photos with wildlife love animals. That’s why they want to interact with them. So, during once-in-a-lifetime trips to tourist destinations such as Thailand, Bali or the Amazon, it’s understandable that they’d want to take a snap with an elephant, an orangutan or a dolphin for Facebook or Instagram. This snap becomes a fond memory once back home.
But if they knew about the suffering these animals endure for the sake of a photo opportunity, they’d put their phones and cameras away.
Fond memories shouldn’t be created from pain. Snatched from the wild as babies, constantly surrounded by loud noises, passed from stranger to stranger, kept in tiny cages, animals are terrified, bored and depressed, all for the sake of a holiday snap. There is no excuse to cruel wildlife selfies, it’s abuse.
