We’ve partnered with World Animal Protection to develop our Animal Welfare in Tourism Code of Conduct. We believe that animals should have a good life, one that is defined by the five universally accepted principles of animal welfare.

  • Freedom from hunger or thirst by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health,

  • Freedom from discomfort by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area,

  • Freedom from pain, injury or disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment,

  • Freedom to express (most) normal behaviours by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind,

  • Freedom from fear and distress by ensuring conditions and treatment that avoid mental suffering.


World Animal Protection aims to:

  • End the needless suffering of animals

  • Influence decision makers to put animals on the global agenda

  • Help the world see how important animals are to all of us

  • Inspire people to change animals’ lives for the better

  • Move the world to protect animals.
