Wildlife Tourism

Across the globe wild animals are used for entertainment and they are often taken from their natural habitat and subjected to inappropriate care and treatment.

This has a significant impact on the welfare of the individual animal and in some cases, the conservation of the species. The number of animals involved and the extent of suffering is often unclear. Scientific research into the problem is essential to provide the evidence which can support governments, global industry bodies, NGO’s and the tourism industry itself to work together to end these cruel practices. This page explores the issues and how your expertise could help reduce unethical wildlife tourism.
