In Responsible Travel

Last year we launched our Animal Welfare Policy, as we addressed what animal experiences we’re prepared to sell as part of our holidays abroad. Just like the environment or communities, we want to make sure there is a positive impact on many areas of a holiday – and that includes the welfare of animals you might interact with along the way.

When considering animal welfare in tourism, it’s crucial to be aware of the ethical implications surrounding various activities involving animals. Tourists often encounter attractions such as wildlife sanctuaries, marine parks, or elephant rides, but not all of these experiences prioritize the well-being of the animals involved. One key aspect to look out for is whether the attraction promotes conservation and rehabilitation efforts. Responsible establishments focus on the welfare and preservation of species, contributing to the broader goal of maintaining biodiversity.

Furthermore, it’s essential to scrutinize the conditions in which the animals are kept. Ethical tourism supports facilities that provide spacious and natural environments for the animals, allowing them to exhibit natural behaviours. Beware of places that exploit animals for entertainment purposes, as this can lead to stress and unhealthy living conditions. Responsible travelers should prioritize sanctuaries and initiatives that prioritize education and conservation over profit, ensuring that their tourism activities contribute positively to the well-being of the animal kingdom.
