Animal-Friendly Travel Is Easier Than You Think

2.9.2020

We are calling on the public to be responsible travellers and Travel Kind – for the future of humankind, the planet and for animals.

Since launching #LiveKinder earlier this year we have covered many ways in which we can all make small changes to our lives that can impact for animals, our health and the planet. Another way is to become a responsible traveller.

Despite many travel plans being cancelled due to the pandemic, many of us will be dreaming of where our next trip will take us. When making those plans why not consider traveling responsibly and being an animal-friendly traveller? It's easier than you think!

You’re not alone in enjoying seeing animals, but the sad reality is that thousands of wild animals are suffering just to entertain tourists, and domesticated animals are enduring cruel treatment just to cart us around. We can do our bit to save them by making a conscious decision to Travel Kind.

Animal Charity

From only enjoying animals in their natural habit and not hugging, riding or touching them, we can still get up close to nature, but on their terms, not ours. No animal is here for our entertainment, or to pose for pictures. A decision to step away from a picture opportunity or the purchase a souvenir using animal parts, are just some of the simple ways you can choose to Travel Kind.
