Implementing responsible tourism policies requires constant regulation, something Intrepid knows all too well. The company has just audited its 140-plus wildlife tours to maintain its ethical practice standards. -Selene Brophy
Intrepid Travel, one of the world’s largest tour operators with a reputation for responsible tourism, has cleaned up its wildlife tours offering, maintaining its animal welfare policy standards.
The travel company has reviewed its 140-plus range of wildlife experiences and removed tours that failed to meet its standards of ethical engagement.
Its customers will no longer be able to book certain tours, ending support and inclusion of Madagascar’s Adasibe National Park experience for example, “due to enclosed animal living conditions for the sole purpose of travel and entertainment, without clear conservation intentions.”
