With the global travel community in upheaval as we work through the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that educational opportunities for our members, and community, allow us all to look to the future when travelers will return, in force.
Animals in tourism - identifying and managing risk in your supply chain
Animal welfare specialist, Daniel Turner from ANIMONDIAL, considers the importance of reviewing your animal-based activities and experiences, in order to identify and mitigate risk. From viewing wildlife in the wild, to riding a camel, or to visiting a zoo, or the holding of an animal for a photograph, safeguards need to be in place to protect both the people and animals.
We know animal experiences are popular with travelers, but how do we guarantee their health and safety?
Daniel will help us understand the underlying risks - from the potential of physical injury to the transmission of disease. What actions are necessary to identify and measure risk? Moreover, how to work with colleagues, partners and suppliers to mitigate risk, improve standards and deliver experiences that are safe for animals and people.
