Wildlife SOS, India, has launched a petition to end the abusive practice of riding elephants and is encouraging supporters to share these online posters through their #RefusetoRide campaign. These three posters – ‘Here’s What Goes Into Making an Elephant “Rideable”’; ‘Signs of an Abused Elephant’; ‘Demand Enforcement of India’s Strong Elephant Protection Laws’ – contain a wealth of information.
Please take this information to heart as the concept of ethical elephant riding simply does not exist. Unimaginable cruelty takes place, unseen by tourists and in preparation for them. Stand up for our elephants and just don’t do it; elephant riding, that is.
Elephant riding should never be promoted as the end-all be-all experience of a lifetime. In the twenty-first century one should know better than this.
Help our elephants and pledge to end this cruel tradition of riding an elephant while on holiday and encourage others to do the same.
