Animal Friendly Tourism

Responsible tourism means making sure that it’s animal friendly tourism.

Torn from their mother from an early age, captive tigers suffer daily abuse in the name of tourist entertainment. Same goes for elephants.

A tourists was gored by a bull elephant at Bangkaew Adventure tourist site in Tambon Song Phraek back in February. This is a stark reminder that elephants are wild animals and should never be ridden.

Elephants and tigers trained for tourist entertainment are brutally beaten.  Their spirits broken from a very young age to make them submissive enough to be used to give rides, perform tricks and be used as photo props.

“I’m convinced of this: good done anywhere is good done everywhere. As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good.” – Maya Angelou

A life in tourist entertainment is no life for any wild animal. Get involved and become an animal-friendly tourist!

“If animals could speak, mankind would weep.” – Anthony Douglas Williams

So if you are going to travel, make sure that it is animal friendly tourism.

  1. I would agree. I live in Northern Canada and here there’s a zoo that has a bengal tiger in it. It’s crazy to me. People come from far and wide to see this tiger… in a 10×10 cage in Northern Canada. It just makes me so sad. If I’m going to see animals, I want to see them in their natural habitats where they’re free to roam and live their lives as they please. I don’t want them in cages.

    1. I agree. The only zoo I’ve brought my kids to, is a rescue and release center. They only have local animals who have been injured and they release them when the animals are ready.

I love hearing from you!
