At Expedia, we believe it is our responsibility to help educate travelers on issues related to wildlife tourism so that they can make informed and ethical decisions about how they travel and interact with the people and animals that share our planet. Knowing more about the places we go, the activities we engage in, and the ways in which we leave lasting impacts on our destinations is key to responsible travel. As we help people go places, we want to help them do it well—thoughtfully, intentionally, and sustainably.
In an effort to further educate customers about wildlife tourism issues, Expedia has partnered with the Association of Zoos & Aquariums, African Wildlife Foundation, U.S. Wildlife Trafficking Alliance, Humane Society International, and PETA to create informative articles about conservation.
