Every day, animals suffer in the name of entertainment
Hundreds of thousands of wild animals across the world are snatched from natural habitats, forced into captivity and subjected to abuse, both mentally and physically, in the name of entertainment and profit.
Sadly, many tourists who love animals may actually contribute to animal suffering because they are unaware of this hidden cruelty.
Whether it’s riding an elephant, walking with lions, or swimming with dolphins – these might all seem like fun ways to interact with wild animals when on vacation. In reality, they cause intense suffering and pain for the animals involved.
Read our report, "The Show Can't Go On", on wild animal entertainment to learn more about the problem.
