We have submitted our endorsement of the SATSA Animal Interaction Charter whereby we have agreed to abide by the ethical approach adopted by the guidelines to animal interactions thus ensuring we are on the right side of the ‘Line in the Sand’ and working with organisations considered acceptable based on this guide. We are proud to update our Thompsons Africa Wildlife Pledge to include this commitment and endorsement of the SATSA Animal Interaction Charter.
Thompsons Africa Wildlife Pledge
At Thompsons Africa we are mindful of the plight of wildlife across the globe and in Africa in particular. We are especially conscious of the importance of conserving our wildlife heritage. After all, we are blessed to be the caretakers of an abundance of wildlife that brings so many travellers to our shores. Thompsons Africa does not support any wildlife interaction that we deem to be unethical in either its purpose or in any way results in cruelty as a side effect. As a priority we ensure that we are 100% involved with our partnered wildlife organisations, and as a member of The TreadRight Foundation, we practise the promise to make the welfare of our wildlife our number one concern. Our endorsement of the SATSA Animal Interaction Charter further reinforces our commitment to an ethical approach to the long-term conservation of wildlife welfare.
