Three different travel associations have announced that they will be doing their part to try and inform travelers about which animal products come from trafficked animals and are actually be illegal.
The ASTA, CLIA, and the Adventure Travel Trade Association are supporting the goals of the U.S. Wildlife Trafficking Alliance to raise awareness about animal trafficking.
David J. Hayes, the chair of the U.S. Wildlife Trafficking Alliance spoke out about the support.
“It is exciting to see the U.S. travel industry step up and use their deep relationships with the traveling public to raise awareness about the global wildlife trafficking crisis and give unsuspecting travelers the tools to make good buying decisions.
“The Alliance applauds ATTA, ASTA, and CLIA for its socially responsible leadership, in concert with the non-profit and government sectors, in working to close down the illegal wildlife markets that are fueling the senseless killing of endangered species around the globe.”
