As captive wildlife interactions remain is a complex issue, SATSA – the South African Tourism Association, has launched a guide to Evaluating Captive Wildlife Attractions and Activities.
The guide is an interactive tool for easy decision making, through eight simple questions, on interactions through a “decision tree”.
The guide is aimed at four key groups: foreign and local visitors interacting with animals, buyers such as destination management companies, tour operators internationally and locally as well as industry representatives such as associations, industry bodies and government among others.
The tool will allow these groups to assess animal interaction operations and make informed decisions to support ethically sound and responsible operators in South Africa.
