Wildlife. Not Entertainers.
Do you love to see wildlife when you travel? You’re not alone.
But did you know that wild animals around the world are facing a lifetime of suffering, just to entertain tourists?
Every day, animals suffer in the name of entertainment
Hundreds of thousands of wild animals across the world are snatched from natural habitats, forced into captivity and subjected to abuse, both mentally and physically, in the name of entertainment and profit.
Sadly, many tourists who love animals may actually contribute to animal suffering because they are unaware of this hidden cruelty.
Whether it’s riding an elephant, walking with lions, or swimming with dolphins – these might all seem like fun ways to interact with wild animals when on vacation. In reality, they cause intense suffering and pain for the animals involved.
Changing the world, together
Petitions take just seconds to support and can be incredibly powerful. Last year over 558,000 supporters signed our petition asking TripAdvisor to stop selling tickets to cruel wildlife attractions and they listened.
Thanks to people like you, TripAdvisor will stop selling tickets to some of the world’s cruellest tourist activities, and their website will now host a new education portal, that will educate millions of tourists about the cruelties imposed upon wild animals used as props for entertainment.
We will be working with TripAdvisor throughout 2017 to make sure they are doing all they can to protect wild animals from cruelty.
Stand up for wildlife
Join the movement to help protect animals today.
By working together, we can help end the suffering of wild animals in the name of tourist entertainment for good.
I stand with World Animal Protection and will not take part in any activities that involve touching or taking selfies with wild animals.
