We urge the FWC to make animal welfare and public safety a priority. Several travel companies have already taken action on this issue and banned the advertising of elephant rides to tourist. The cruel nature and danger of these "attractions" are becoming more apparent.

Elephants should be respected, and value should be placed on real education and true conservation. Not profit-making spectacles.
