CONFERENCE THEATRE

There is mounting concern about the ethics, value and impacts of the tourism industry on wildlife conservation. Whilst views about what is desirable and unacceptable differ by source markets and age, there is no doubt that views are changing. The animal welfare issue was debated at WTM  London and World Animal Protection has published research on how little the trade associations are doing to improve practices in animal welfare.  In this panel, we are broadening the animal welfare debate to consider how the tourism industry can positively support overall conservation goals.
