The Amazon rainforest is famous for its diverse wildlife. And the number of tourists who want to take selfies with its fascinating animals is rising fast. Sadly, this has led to exploitation.
Championing the cause for animals since 1950
For more than 70 years, World Animal Protection India has been advocating to put an end to cruelty and suffering towards animals. During this period, we have expanded our reach and impact. We have played a pivotal role in elevating the importance of animal welfare on a worldwide level, bringing about notable advancements in the treatment of both farm and wild animals.
1,500 wild animals are being kept captive for entertainment tourism in Bali. Avoid wildlife abusement parks and call on travel companies to play their part in combatting animal cruelty.
Lions are being exploited and killed in their thousands for profit. To protect people, the planet and wild animals, we must end the global wildlife trade. Forever.
We helped to end bear dancing in India–an age old tradition cruelly exploiting bears for entertainment; with cubs poached from the wild and trained to ‘dance’ for tourists on the streets of India.
