Expedia's new animal welfare policy is not bold enough
New animal welfare policy published by #Expedia: https://t.co/PmVeSaVu54— Ilaria Di Silvestre (@IlariaEG4A) February 21, 2020
Shameful that attractions using animals for entertainment, like #dolphinaria, and proposing interaction with wild animals will continue to be promoted 😡 You should do MUCH better than this @Expedia !
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.”
