A tour operator may choose to involve animal or nature-based experiences in their portfolio. By doing so, they have a duty of care, in addition to the supplier, to ensure the animals are well treated and kept appropriately, nature is protected, and that their customers are not exposed to potential risk.
Our auditing service provides reassurance that all animals within an attraction, or tourism experience, are in a good physical and mental welfare state, and are protected against harm. This requires an assessment of the living conditions and husbandry standards for animals kept in a captive environment or used to carry people or loads, and for animals in the wild, a review of viewing practices. Auditing ensures tourism operation and activities do not negatively impact on individual animals, cause biodiversity loss, or degrade natural habitats.
It is a complex topic, with many species and activities involved, but fundamentally it requires knowledge of animals and nature, and expertise on how to mitigate negative impact. Our team of auditors are fully trained by ANIMONDIAL , the experts in animal and nature protection, guaranteeing a trusted and reliable service.
Our animal welfare auditing is built on the animal welfare principles (referred to as the Five Domains), the most contemporary and well-accepted framework for measuring animal welfare. While our unique Nature Positive Tourism auditing combines sustainability, animal welfare and Nature Positive approaches to provide a one-stop-shop of nature protection.
