Elephants Performing – Help This Become a Thing of the Past

Elephant ride and activities Thailand

Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle—a “luxury camp” in Thailand—continues to force elephants to give rides and play polo, despite claiming to give refuge to endangered Asian elephants. Offering these rides sends a dangerous message to tourists and drives demand for an abusive industry that controls animals through violence and domination. Dozens of travel companies have committed to not offering rides, and as a result of the public’s “mood shift” against the use of animals for entertainment, Ringling Bros. circus has shut down after 146 years. It’s well past time that Four Seasons ended rides and all other direct-contact activities with elephants.

Please take a moment to urge Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle to end the use of elephants for rides, polo, and all other exploitative activities.

Good News: Trip Advisor Will Stop Supporting Cruel Wildlife Experiences

There is strength in numbers. The more people sign petitions and speak up against animal cruelty, the better chances are that those involved will listen:

“TripAdvisor announced they will stop selling tickets to cruel wildlife experiences where tourists have direct physical contact with captive wild animals.

As the world’s largest travel site, the influence TripAdvisor has on the industry is immense and the impact they can have for animals is enormous. This is a significant step towards ending elephant rides, tiger selfies, swimming with dolphins and other forms of cruel tourist entertainment.

The power of the people

Over the past six months, more than 558,000 supporters across the world including around 70,000 Australians called upon TripAdvisor to stop profiting from the sale of tickets to cruel wildlife tourist attractions. And they listened!

In addition to ceasing the sale of tickets we will work with TripAdvisor as they establish an animal education portal on their website to help millions of tourists become aware of the cruelties wild animals face for tourism entertainment.

There is more work to be done

Sadly, however, certain venues that involve animal suffering where direct contact doesn’t occur will still be bookable via TripAdvisor or its Viator brand.”

There is more work to be done, so please keep spreading the word on animal awareness, thank you!

Good News:Virtual Reality Surgical System Replaces Practice with Live Pigs

Technologies in many fields are advancing at an ever faster pace. Some of these save lives, and some of these also save lives of animals in a different ways.

Many doctors had to do their training on live animals, but now there are some fascinating replacement technologies that not only save human lives but also the lives of other beings.

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) doctors-in-training at renowned Rush University Medical Center in Chicago will no longer practice surgical procedures on live pigs. Thanks to a collaboration between the hospital and PETA, medical residents will now train on a state-of-the-art virtual reality surgical system.

“The surgical experience of our residents takes a huge leap forward as we move toward a more humane and effective method of simulation training,” said Dr. Xavier Pombar, the OB/GYN residency director at Rush University. “Representatives from PETA have worked steadfastly with our department toward this goal. I cannot thank them enough for their efforts.”

Now this news has to spread so that more doctors can learn without harming other beings.

Should We Wipe Mosquitoes off the Face of the Earth?

This is a very insightful and informative post from a fellow blogger:

Animalista Untamed

It’s funny how certain incidents stick in our minds while others just fade away in the memory fog. Do you find that? These are a couple that stuck in mine:

The first was a friend ‘liking’ my Animalista Untamed Facebook page and adding the comment, “Love animals and love people who also love animals. I do mean all animals though, not just the pretty ones.” Look lady, I said (only to myself though, not to her!) I’m vegan. I believe in reverence for life and ahimsa. I feed slugs for goodness sake. I’m not just into fluffy bunny rabbits.

The second was a friend watching me stop kids stamping on a colony of ants that were scurrying busily about on their day’s assignments. Later, sitting in her kitchen she saw me absently touching my bare arm – a reflex to a slight tickling sensation. “Oh, so you don’t mind killing mosquitoes then!”It seemed like she couldn’t wait to say…
