Elephants forced to give rides to tourists at Amer Fort in India.
Elephants at Amer Fort in Rajasthan, India, are often controlled with bullhooks which cause wounds and scarring. They carry heavy seats for tourists to sit on, which aggravates injuries and causes them severe muscle strain. Yet they are forced to give rides hour after hour. There is no pride in elephant rides.

Thousands of wild animals are poached every day, farmed or sold into the global multi-billion-dollar trade – for food, pets, traditional medicine, and entertainment. Horrific conditions cause unimaginable suffering for every single animal involved. Unfortunately, they also create a hotbed of zoonotic diseases like COVID-19.
Animals cannot tell their stories of suffering. Together, we must be their voice. We can end this by loudly calling out cruelty, and influencing governments and businesses to change their practices. Together, we can give all animals a life worth living. We can change their lives for the better.
