Soft adventure tailor-made specialist Adventure World is on a mission to help agents ensure their clients have ethical wildlife experiences whilst in India and Asia with the release of their 2017/18 tailor-made collection.
Adventure World in association with World Animal Protection has a commitment of not providing any product incorporating elephant rides or shows in their itineraries and further to this in partnership with the TreadRight Foundation they are supporting Wildlife SOS – India’s ‘Captive Elephants Welfare Project,’ which specifically addresses the problem of injured and sick elephants made to work in stressful and oppressive conditions. Their aim is to reach out to lone elephants, wounded and dehydrated on the streets, which do not have access to proper medical care. The project’s goal is to bring about change in the state of captive elephants in Delhi and other areas by providing veterinary support, with a long-term goal of ending the trafficking of wild elephants for captivity.
“Awareness and education is the first step in changing the lives of our animal friends in India & Asia. Consumers may unintentionally request certain experiences not aware of the animal welfare implications and to help our agents it’s important they are aware we have taken the stand to be ethically driven rather than commercially to initiate change”
Neil Rodgers Adventure World General Manager
The just released Adventure World India & Asia 2017/18 brochure includes a wide array of ethical wildlife experiences that clients can enjoy including an increased portfolio of boutique safari lodge options in India’s National Parks to spot the elusive Tiger. Plus their ‘Wildlife of Gujarat’ itinerary allows clients to explore the lesser known Gir National Park, home to an array of big cats and other exotic animal species of the Devaliya region.
In Sri Lanka, leopards, elephants and wild buffalo can be observed on Adventure Worlds ‘Undiscovered Sri Lanka’ itinerary and in Borneo there is an array of eco-friendly programs with a focus on the preservation of the Orang-utan.
