As the UK’s no.1 specialist in sustainable and responsible travel to Latin America, we are committed to protecting the incredible people, natural habitats and diverse wildlife of the continent we love.
Our Animal Welfare Policy ensures that all services we offer involving an element of animal interaction follow the best practice guidelines, and that our activities do not have a detrimental effect on wild, captive or working animals. We believe all animals involved in our holiday experiences should be healthy, comfortable, well-nourished, safe, able to express natural behaviour and are protected from unpleasant feelings such as pain and distress.
Our comprehensive animal welfare policy includes:
- We advocate for improved animal welfare standards and responsible tourism practices for any experiences involving animals.
- We will never knowingly include or promote holiday activities that put people or animals at risk.
- We seek to protect animals and plants that may be threatened by trade.
- We encourage our staff, clients and partners to monitor animal welfare standards throughout our operations, and report concerns back to us, so we can take appropriate action.
- We work with our partners locally to improve standards through raising awareness of animal welfare concerns.
