What is TripAdvisor's animal policy?

TripAdvisor does NOT list attractions where the primary purpose of the business includes the harming or killing of endangered species or captive animals.

TripAdvisor does NOT list attractions that conduct feedings of live animals to other animals for entertainment purposes (e.g. feeding live cows to lions).

TripAdvisor does list attractions where tourists come into physical contact with endangered species or captive wild animals, but we do NOT sell tickets to these attractions.

We believe informative reviews help consumers weigh their travel options and hold the tourism industry accountable for matters of quality, customer service, and ethical issues (such as how animals are treated).
