Big News! Airbnb Experiences Ban SeaWorld, Elephant Rides, Tiger Cub Petting, More.
After working with PETA, international hospitality company Airbnb announced the launch of new policy guidelines governing its Animal Experiences, which ban direct-contact activities that abuse and exploit wild animals!
Airbnb Experiences are bookable tours and activities, designed and led by local experts. While Airbnb has excluded elephant rides from its tourism experiences for some time now, the new policy prohibits other encounters that cause animals harm, such as swimming with dolphins and photo ops with tiger cubs.
Peta has worked together with Airbnb to make new guidelines.
These guidelines mean that Airbnb will ban direct-contact activities that abuse and exploit wild animals!
Another big step!
