Tourism interaction with animals and especially elephants is becoming more and more controversial. There are, sadly, far too many examples of elephants being poached in the wild and being mistreated whilst in captivity. There is a long list of problems and far too few solutions except, perhaps, a boycott that would not provide the desired benefits in terms of animal welfare. However, a group of specialists has created a new set of standards for elephant camps in Southeast Asia. Discover more about this important initiative in this latest edition of PATA VE Bulletin.
