Thank You, TripAdvisor!

On October 12, 2016, TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, announced a policy change that can’t be easily ignored—

[The company] announced its commitment to launch a set of industry-leading actions, including changes to its policy on selling tickets to animal attractions, and the launch of a new education portal to help inform travelers about the standards of care for wild, captive, and endangered species in tourism and their interactions with tourists, and their impact on wildlife conservation.

This is a huge step in the right direction in terms of raising awareness about wildlife captivity.
