Working together with ANIMONDIAL – For a world where tourism is kind to animals
Since 2019, Natucate works together with ANIMONDIAL, a leading tourism consultancy specialising in responsible animal tourism. In the following blog, you can learn more about ANIMONDIAL's Build Back Better for Animals initiative.
Animals are a popular element of many holiday trips: on the one hand, this manifests in wildlife watching in the wild, on the other hand in visiting facilities or attractions where animals are in a captive environment.
Tourism that is well managed and thought-out can actively contribute to the protection of animals and nature. However, if certain measures and safeguards are missing, animal welfare is often put at risk. From a conservational view, this can pose threats to entire species – from an economic perspective, people, business, and destination reputation may suffer severe damage.
