How to be an animal-friendly traveller
Don’t let wild animals suffer
Tragically, countless wild animals around the world pay a heavy price for being in tourist entertainment. They suffer a lifetime of cruelty, confinement, neglect and abuse. Many even pay with their lives.
Whether it’s posing for a photo with a tiger, riding an elephant or watching a dolphin show, demand from tourists means these animals will continue to suffer and be poached from the wild to live lives of misery in captivity.
As tourists, we have the power to help stop this. By making animal-friendly choices on holiday, you can reduce the demand for wild animals in entertainment.
We’ve put together this checklist for you to use before, during and after your trip, so you can make informed decisions about animal experiences on your journey.
In this guide, you’ll find an easy-to-follow checklist you can refer to before your trip, when you’re on holiday and when you return home to make responsible decisions about the wildlife activities you take part in.
Sadly, many tourists who love wild animals may actually contribute to animal suffering simply because they don’t understand or see the cruelty. That’s why educating yourself and others to make animal-friendly choices is so important.
