Are you #SelfieAware? Many people jump at the chance to get close to wildlife on holiday unaware of the suffering and abuse this causes. If you can take a photo with a wild animal, chances are it has gone through cruel training. Will you stand with us and pledge to not be part of the picture? [ Bit.ly Link ]
The news that one of America's largest circus companies, the Ringling Brothers, is to close in May 2017 is a major victory for the wild animals who have suffered abuse in the name of entertainment. The techniques used to train wild animals to be submissive enough to ‘perform’ are cruel and unacceptable. Lions, tigers, camels, donkeys, alpacas, kangaroos and llamas have been part of the circus... View details ⇨
Great response from people at The Telegraph Travel Show this weekend letting people know to see animals in the wild rather than in entertainment. More about our selfie pledge tomorrow. Wildlife. #NotEntertainers

We are deeply saddened by the news of Tilikum’s death. We also urge SeaWorld to make public the details of his exact illness and the results of any necropsy.
Tilikum’s life has shown the world that wild animals belong in the wild, not in captivity for our entertainment. We are grateful that this will be the last generation of orcas to live in captivity at SeaWorld, and that this weekend... View details ⇨
We demand that the new Romanian government enforce the law, and confiscate the bears suffering in grim conditions in Fantanele. We know that illegally held bears have been used to breed cubs into a life of captive cruelty. It’s time they took their first steps of freedom at the Zarnesti sanctuary. [ Bit.ly Link ]
Mr X knows his captive bears are illegal – but he doesn’t think anyone can touch him. Show him he’s wrong – it’s time the Romanian authorities enforced the law so these bears can taste freedom at long last. Help bring them to the Zarnesti sanctuary! Sign the petition [ Bit.ly Link ]
An amazing 98 bears have been rescued from miserable captivity in Romania since our work began. But it should be over 100. For almost 20 years a man has kept bears in illegal cages on his property. He has also bred and sold cubs. This individual threatens all the progress that has been made for animals in Romania. We won’t let it happen. Please join us in calling on the new Romanian government... View details ⇨
No wild animal belongs in a tiny, rusting cage. Denied the right to behave naturally. Stressed, tormented and neglected – just to be someone’s status symbol. The Romanian law agrees – but Mr X doesn’t. For years he has flouted the law, keeping bears caged on his private property. It’s time they were free. Sign the petition: [ Bit.ly Link ]
The kind of January sale we can get on board with!
If wildlife adventures in Kenya, India, Thailand or Romania are calling to you, World Expeditions will donate up to 10% of the value of your trip of a lifetime to World Animal Protection! [ Bit.ly Link ]
At the Zarnesti sanctuary, bears who once suffered in bitter captivity are now doing what bears do best – climbing, foraging and getting ready for a long winter. The Fantanele bears deserve to be there too. Do you agree? Please help us put pressure on the new Romanian government to do what’s right – so these prisoners can enjoy liberty at long last. [ Bit.ly Link ]
We’re so close to ending the cruel captivity of bears in Romania – but one criminal breeder defies the law, and keeps at least 5 bears in tiny, rusting cages on his private property. Please help free the prisoners of Fantanelle! The Zarnesti sanctuary is waiting to give these bears a new life – we’re calling on the new Romanian government to step in and enforce the law. Please add your voice:... View details ⇨
A new year and some great news for animals already!
China have announced that they are banning ivory trade & processing in 2017. China represent 70 per cent of the globe’s ivory buyers so this move is a real 'game changer' for the many vulnerable African elephants that are being poached for their tusks everyday. #illegalwildlifetrade
