Ban adverts for and sale of Asian elephant tours that do not meet set standards
background
Many endangered Asian elephants suffer from brutal tourism, much of it from the UK. Current guidance and promises by the tourism industry are insufficient, and the Government must legislate to ban adverts for and sale of Asian elephant tours that do not meet a set standard.
additional details
Elephants as “megagardeners of the forest” are key to biodiversity, nourish land, store carbon, and protect from climate change. Yet 40% of tourists to some countries plan elephant rides. In Thailand captive elephants, which can transmit TB, gave 13 million rides in 2016. Operators advertise and sell Asian elephant tours with no legal constraints. 90% of people surveyed say using elephants in tourism is unjustified. Petitions to end their cruel treatment have received millions of signatures.
