I’m not kidding myself anymore given what I’ve seen in the past few months, not only worldwide, but right here under our roof…I’ve got a name for it, and I call it “R-A-B-I-E-S”: Rebellious Acquired Behavior In Every Species.

For every good organization, business or tour group out there, there are many more who don’t have the animals interests at heart. A combination of greed, opportunism, apathy and a huge lack of education and understanding from the general public can lead to animals actually being harmed and exploited by the wildlife tourism industry and the very tourists who have come to see them.
