Many people love seeing exotic animals when they are travelling abroad. When you are travelling responsibly, this can be an incredible experience. However, there is a lot that you should bear in mind when going to see animals abroad to make sure that you are not participating in something altogether less animal-friendly.
Make sure you do your research. Look at reviews and find out as much as you can about how animals in captivity are looked after.
Go and see animals in the wild. This is the best way to see animals and to enjoy some beautiful landscapes at the same time. Your entrance fees will often help contribute towards preserving the area and animals as well.
Do not ride elephants. Elephants that give rides to tourists are often taken from the wild and may not have been trained ethically. They will almost definitely be overworked, putting them at great risk of injuries and, eventually, deformities.
