+TripAdvisor updates its policy on selling tours that offer animal and wildlife encounters: "TripAdvisor and its Viator brand will no longer sell tickets for specific tourism experiences where travellers come into physical contact with captive wild animals or endangered species."

In addition, TripAdvisor, in partnership with leading industry experts, plans to launch a new education portal next year, offering information on animal welfare practices, "designed to inform travellers about a range of opinions that exist on the conservation implications and benefits of some tourism attractions."
