Important questions to ask before travelling

Please ask following questions before you volunteer or visit a wildlife farm, game park, sanctuary or national park in Africa:

  1. Do you allow human interaction with the animals?
  2. Do you breed animals?
  3. Do you trade animal?

If a facility answers “yes” to any of these questions, theymay participate in breeding of wildlife, animal tourism, trophy hunting andbone trade, and even in poaching business.

Please check also the “The Good, Bad and Ugly Lists” on Facebook made by Volunteers in Africa Beware. Note that the lists may not be updated with the latest information at all times.

Please read also the information on our webpage so that you get an overall picture of the trophy hunting business, and that you learn how to distinguish the cruel activities which are linked with it from serious conservation.
