For wild animals it's not just a photo, but a lifetime of suffering or even death.

This is another frightening example that proves how dangerous elephants can be. Elephants are not domesticated and even when born in captivity they remain wild animals and tourists should avoid direct contact with them. Elephant rides, ‘be-a-mahout’ experiences, and washing elephants (as this video shows) all involve health, safety and welfare risks to the animals and the visitors. Elephants...

Concerning stories circulating today about obese tigers at a tiger park in China, where tourists pay to feed the animals for their entertainment, is just one of many poor welfare venues in Asia.
No wildlife attraction should allow visitors to have direct contact or feed wild animals. It poses health risks, as well as serious welfare and safety concerns for the animals and for the visitors....

Through the Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI), we're protecting seals, whales, turtles, and other animals, by preventing...
