Basic principles of wildlife engagement
Tribal Tourist believe’s, by bringing more visitors to Africa, we can protect our wildlife and enhance the lives of local communities. It is our responsibility to protect our wildlife and cultural heritage for future generations. We need to ensure we tread respectfully amongst local tribes and cultures and without causing disruption in nature.
- We should never touch, feed or provoke wild animals.
- Always avoid the use of animals as photographic props (having a photo taken with a lion, tiger, elephant, chimps, snakes, tortoises, exotic birds or wildlife)
- Never interact with dangerous, wild animals. They are unpredictable and you will place yourself at great risk.
- Don’t get so close that animals become alarmed or feel threatened, this is for your own safety.
- Always speak quietly when encountering wildlife and avoid sudden movement.
- Avoid breeding sites (nests, burrows, dens) as it could prevent procreation.
- Try to avoid flash photography as it can lead to aggression.
- Souvenirs – do not purchase souvenirs that are made out of wildlife products or other threatened natural materials – including turtle shell, feathers or ivory.
- Don’t drive off road in protected areas and destroy natural plant life.
- For Marine encounters, always allow animals to approach you, keep a safe distance.
Photos of tourists with captive wild animals abound on social media platforms such as Instagram. With the tap of a finger, travelers post their images of exotic animals for the world to see. But often travelers and fans alike are unaware of what the animals’ lives are really like.READ THE FULL STORY
