Did you know that big cats and cubs are exploited and even abused at tourist attractions here in the U.S. and in dozens of countries around the world?
What can you do to make sure you don't unwittingly participate in tourist activities that exploit big cats and other wild animals?
Easy ways YOU and your family can be responsible tourists:
• Never pay to touch or have your photo taken with a tiger or lion cub
• Don’t attend circuses, fairs, or attractions that feature wild animal shows
• Don’t purchase items made from wild animals, such as furs and rugs
• Don’t partake in local “delicacies” made from wild animals, such as tiger bone wine
• Only visit sanctuaries that are accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (http://bit.ly/1D4KB6q).
http://bit.ly/1D4KBmE provides more information about tiger cub petting and allows visitors to sign up for notifications on big cat issues.
But companies like Rite Aid are playing a big role in driving forest destruction by purchasing paper from destructive logging operations that destroy pieces of forest everyday.
YOU can help make a difference! Tell Rite Aid to adopt a forest-friendly paper policy today! >> http://bit.ly/1TOK52z
