Wild animals belong in the wild, not entertainment

Wild animals belong in the wild.

Right now, animals are being exploited for our entertainment.

Across the globe, wild animals are captured, taken from their natural habitats or bred in captivity, and endure a lifetime of cruelty and abuse. Some are beaten into submission, deprived of food and water or trapped in concrete cages.

Why? Because tourists love to see animals when they are on vacation.

And because demand for the animal entertainment industry is so high, these animals continue to be used and abused for profit in increasing numbers.

Wild animals belong in the wild, not in entertainment.

Whether it’s posing for a photograph with an animal, visiting live animal shows or riding wild animals, increasing demand from people on holiday means these animals will continue to suffer for our entertainment.

Pledge your support to stop the cruelty and abuse suffered by wild animals used for entertainment. You can help protect these animals by reducing the demand for this type of animal entertainment in the countries that you visit on vacation
