TripAdvisor to stop selling tickets for some of the
world’s cruelest wildlife entertainment attractions

In order to bring an end to the suffering of animals for entertainment, we’ve engaged with the global travel industry, urging tour operators and others to commit to stop sending customers to venues where wild animals are exploited, such as riding elephants, taking selfies with tigers or petting lion cubs.

We’ve identified some of these activities as the world’s cruelest forms of wildlife tourist entertainment.

Earlier this year, we shared the good news that with help from our wonderful supporters, over 100 global travel companies agreed to no longer offer visits to venues with elephant rides and shows in any of their markets.

Now, thanks to over 558,000 supporters we are proud to share that TripAdvisor will stop selling tickets to wildlife activities where tourists are allowed direct contact with captive, wild animals or endangered species. This means activities such as tiger selfies, petting lion cubs and swimming with dolphins will no longer be offered!
