Expedia's new animal welfare policy is not bold enough

24 February 2020
News
Expedia's new animal welfare policy promotes only zoos and aquariums that are members of WAZA, but dolphinaria and other animal shows will continue to be promoted.

Following a protest by World Animal Protection's activists, one month ago Expedia released a statement saying, “We are working closely with globally respected organizations to re-examine our animal welfare policy. We are still working on the policy and while we can share there will be particular focus on the value of those that are members of and/or are accredited by The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums or one of their regionally recognized organizations, we have no news to share today. We will also be clarifying existing policies and developing new policies related to animal activities outside of zoos and aquariums.”
