Tourism and animal welfare


Animals are among the most sought after tourist attractions and the impact on them is a matter of concern to an increasing number of people. Tourism and Animal Welfare uniquely addresses the issue of animal welfare within the tourism experience. It explores important foundations such as the meaning of 'animal welfare' and its relation to ethics, animal rights and human obligations to animals. It also explores the nature and diversity of the position and role of animals within tourism.

'Tales from the front line' is the section of the book that provides the reader with the views and experiences of animal welfare organisations, individual leaders, tourism industry organisations and operators, and academic experts. These case studies and opinion pieces will encourage the reader to consider their own position regarding animals in tourism and their welfare. The book:

· is written by an authoritative author team that draws from the fields of tourism studies (Neil Carr) and animal welfare science (Donald Broom);

· contains 14 case studies written by internationally recognised experts and iconic individuals in the field of animal welfare;

· is written in an engaging style and features full colour illustrations.

From students and academics to vets and those working within the tourism industry, this book will provide an engaging and thought-provoking read. It will also appeal to those with an interest in animal welfare, particularly in relation to the tourism industry.

This text is long overdue and timely. Carr and Broom have placed the issues firmly in the broader context of the relationship between our species and the others which share this planet with us...As they argue it is possible for tourists and the travel and tourism sector to take and exercise responsibility to drive change, Carr and Brooms text helps us to understand the issues and the context and to make better-informed choices.

Responsible Tourism Partnership -

A timely and useful book that should lead to enhanced understanding of the problems, challenges, knowledge gaps and future possibilities for improvements in welfare through the wide and very diverse aspects of animals in tourism. - Ronda Green, Journal of Ecotourism

Tourism and Animal Welfare invites the readers to continue the dialogue about what each of us can do to ensure the welfare of animals. It is an excellent introductory book offering a thorough overview of the current situation of animals in tourism. The reader will find this book informative in its presentation of many site-specific examples. Tourism and Animal Welfare can also serve as a useful source of educational guidelines for tourists and tourism operators. Rie Usui, Tourism Geographies January 2019.
