GetYourGuide Employees: Let Your Leadership Know You’re Against Animal Cruelty in Tourism.

Continue making memories, not misery for animals.

A life in captivity is no life at all for intelligent and social animals such as elephants, dolphins, and tigers. Wild animals in captivity are often: 

  • separated from their mothers at a young age 
  • confined in tanks, cages, or enclosures thousands of times smaller than their natural habitat 
  • beaten and deprived of food so they can be trained to interact with tourists 

While many global travel leaders, such as Airbnb, Expedia, and Tripadvisor, have implemented meaningful animal welfare policies, GetYourGuide is still selling tickets to venues with captive animals. This includes SeaWorld, fake elephant “sanctuaries,” zoos that force tigers to perform under blaring music, and many other cruel venues. We’ve reached out to company leadership about this important issue but continue to be ignored. 

As an employee of GetYourGuide, you have the power to affect change. You can voice your concern and join World Animal Protection in asking company leadership to stop selling and promoting wildlife entertainment. Currently, GetYourGuide doesn’t have a public animal welfare policy, but you can help change that. 

Understanding the issue

World Animal Protection has resources to learn more about the captive wildlife industry and our campaign:

Advocating for change

Speaking up at work can be intimidating, especially when you want change to happen. Here are some great resources to get the conversation going and make a positive difference for your company: 

Take action

Join us and tell GetYourGuide leadership to do right by wildlife and end the sale of cruel wildlife venues. Urge leadership to adopt a comprehensive, public animal welfare policy that protects the 500,000+ wild animals currently exploited by the tourism industry.

We’re also looking for employees to speak to privately about our campaign. Interested? Email us at getyourguide@worldanimalprotection.us (we’ll keep your identity anonymous).
