You can help stop animals being exploited in the wild

 

The story so far

Animals are being exploited for our entertainment. Wild animals are captured, taken from their natural habitats or bred in captivity, and suffer a lifetime of cruelty and abuse. Some are beaten into submission, deprived of food and water or trapped in concrete cages. All because people love to see animals when they are on holiday – demand for the animal entertainment industry is so high, these animals continue to be used and abused for profit in ever increasing numbers.

“For so many people, travelling is a time when they have had the most memorable animal experiences – both positive and negative. Seeing wild animals in their natural habitat is a wonderful experience to be treasured. No doubt, as you read this, you may recall how an animal encounter has enriched your travel experience.

However, people are often unaware of the dark side that lurks behind some animal experiences. Animal cruelty can be a by-product of tourism. Animal circuses, bullfights, marine park programmes and poor welfare zoos are all examples of animal exploitation in the name of ‘entertainment’.”

World Animal Protection works to protect the animals

World Animal Protection are working towards reducing the demand for animals in the entertainment industry, because animals belong in the wild, not in entertainment. They have put together a pledge that you can sign so we can work together to educate ourselves and others to make animal friendly choices when we are on holiday to reduce demand for animal entertainment.
