Survey reveals Chinese tourists more aware of wildlife protection

Published on : Wednesday, May 22, 2019

According to a Chinese Daily most Chinese respondents in a recent survey say “no” to any activities that might have a negative impact on animals during their tours.

 

More than 90 percent of Chinese travellers who took part in an overseas wildlife tour revealed that they would consider if their activities negatively affected the animals before making future tour decisions.

 

 

Zhao Zhonghua, chief representative of the World Animal Protection China office said that wildlife-friendly travel plays a crucial role in the healthy growth of wildlife tourism. The research showed the responsibility that Chinese travellers would take, which is very encouraging.

 

 

Marketing company CVSC-TNS Research and World Animal Protection — an international nonprofit animal welfare organization jointly conducted the research. This was based on 2,206 questionnaires.

 

 

For entertainment and profit hundreds of thousands of wild animals across the world are taken away from natural habitats, forced into captivity and subjected to abuse, both mentally and physically.

 

World Animal Protection developed an initiative in 2015. It called for animal-friendly tours and for tour operators worldwide to keep wild animals in the wild where they belong. Many travel agencies supported it.

 

 

More than 200 companies removed the wildlife-related entertainment services by the end of last year.
