When Wildlife Tourism Hurts Animals | National Geographic ctm magazine



Wildlife tourism is growing in the Amazon, a region that once virtually defined hard-to-reach. Visitors come to experience unspoiled nature, but that’s not always what’s on display. At some destinations, local residents keep captive wildlife, taken illegally from the jungle, to offer visitors the chance to hold a sloth, an anteater, or a caiman as if they were stuffed animals. Tourists also have the chance to swim with river dolphins, which tour operators attract with bait. The practice encourages aggressive behavior, endangering the very object of visitors’ admiration. All of these encounters are stressful for the animals and can pose health and safety risks to tourists.

    I fucking hate humans.

  • West Coast on October 10, 2017

    Iโ€™d kill all those idiots and let the animals go free.

  • rick on October 10, 2017

    please stop exploiting wild animals just to earn some profit. you are endangering their lives by doing so. its terribly disgusting side of human nature

  • panthera50 on October 11, 2017

    fucking idiots. ๐Ÿ™

    Each of the people that are getting these animals illegally should be placed in a cage so tiny that they can't move, only fed if someone feels like it, do not allow them to sleep keeping a bright light on them 24/7, do not give them anything to wear then allow people to come see them poke them smack them pull there hair and feed them nasty stuff that makes them sick. As for the people who go to these places giving them money to kill and miss treat these poor animals so when that one dies they go get another animal out of the forest. Well First every single one of you know what you are doing is wrong. Being upper class I know you think I can do what ever I want, but remember KARMA because some way some how that KARMA will bite you in your A$$ then you will be just as those poor animals are . Just read what I wrote about the ones who get these animals and you will then know what will happen to you!!!

    SEI Lร ESTES ANIMAIS NรƒO DEVERIAM TER ESSE CONTATO COM OS HUMANOS,ELES CORREM PERIGO DE VIDA SENDO DOMESTICADOS…

  • Gustavo Kraizfeld on October 14, 2017

    The problem is the people, I guess. It's possible to have an eco-tourism without putting the wild animals at risk, but people are always pushing the borders that divides us from wild animals and, for most of them, It isn't enough to close watch, they need to touch/grab/take a selfie with the animals.

  • Nj on October 14, 2017

    Why don't they let them live

  • cherryoctopi on October 14, 2017

    This honestly opened my perspective

  • MisterHeroman on October 15, 2017

    Lot of PETA in these comments.

  • VeganVixen on October 22, 2017

    When will we understand that animals are sentient beings, not things for our use?!?!

  • Shuttle on October 29, 2017

    They wouldn't like to be baited, would they?

    I think that still a win win solution for both community and the wildlife . Those people get money without logging the forest.

  • MOVIE TOWN on November 16, 2017

    nnnnnnooooo why peapole wwwhhhhyyyy

  • Sofia P on November 24, 2017

    So sad

  • blue girl on December 11, 2017

    They don't care about nature!! (By the way that dolphin is cute)

  • Titanus Mekagojira on December 17, 2017

    Anyone who hurts these animals will be hunted and killed by meh.

  • Maria da Luz Moutinho on December 29, 2017

    A dualidade…tentamos enterder-nos a nรณs conjugando uma visรฃo subjectiva com a objectiva neste mundo fรญsico..mas sendo parte deste sobrestimamo-nos ou ignorar tudo ou mais profundo?? Isto aleija… A nossa ignorรขncia profunda!! As asfixias a que sujeitam a vida selvagem…Obrigar a superar estas prรกticas tรณxicas e a respeitar o habitat! Estes animais agradeciam se os deixassem em paz e viver a sua vida selvagem…

  • Paloma Blanca on February 26, 2018

    We are a doble moral!!

  • Der Obernugget on February 28, 2018

    I really love animals and i rather would be an animal too ( I know human are animals too but not to be a human) and have a free life. Every time I see something like this i cry because i dont want that animals are sometimes used as "toys"

  • Wildlife lovers? pfft.. You meant those spoiled tourists?

  • Ludwig TheHolyDick on March 17, 2018

    Not toy…

  • sdq sdq on March 17, 2018

    wtf now you want intervene with their livelihood , give the locals a good reason to protect their wildlife

  • BeaveHolio on May 7, 2018

    Tourism helps conservation because now these people have an economic incentive to protect these animals. If the were forced to look for other jobs they'd likely lead to even more habitat destruction.

  • Tiger's Mom Gao on May 26, 2018

    Evil

  • J Sweeting on May 29, 2018

    The Plague of ignorance spreads across this unique sphere of life destroying anything in it part. Why humanity, why?

  • Eli Hernandez on December 20, 2018

    Americans won't criticise them tho because they are "minorities". I guess minorities don't know any better.

  • Eduardo M on December 25, 2018

    Pessoas que pagam pra ficar importunando esses animais, deveriam ser jogadas em moedores de raรงรฃo!!!

  • STRANGEJAWA on April 21, 2019

  • Safal Pathak on May 16, 2019

    Please don't harm nature

  • Natures Finest on June 18, 2019

    that's sad we need to make a change in the world

  • King K on December 2, 2019

    They do not seem to suffer . They are just with people like if you would meet them in the forest and wanted to see who you are as a lot of animals are curious.

  • Shubhangi on November 15, 2020
