3 - Avoid ‘elephant tourism’
The best way to see elephants is in the wild. If you’re going to visit an elephant venue, make sure it allows elephants to be elephants, while educating visitors on their complex needs. A good rule of thumb is that it should be a case of ‘look, don’t touch.’ If a venue allows you to get close enough to ride, bath or touch them, it’s because they’ve been cruelly trained.
The loss of habitat due to deforestation, increases in mining and agricultural activities has been especially harsh on Asian elephants. Asian elephants have lost nearly 30-40 per cent of their habitat, making it incredibly difficult to maintain their offspring and themselves. Avoid contributing to the problem by buying eco-friendly products like our bamboo toilet paper, which doesn’t require deforestation to be produced.
“The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?” — David AttenboroughThanks for keeping our oceans clean and forests green!
