According to Oxford University's Wildlife Conservation Research Unit, there are tourist traps around the world that exploit wild animals in the hopes you'll visit and participate. If you want to avoid supporting animal cruelty, be on the lookout when you travel abroad, and avoid these exhibitions at all cost. They include riding with elephants, taking selfies with any animal, performing and swimming with dolphins, holding wild animals like sea turtles and dancing monkeys. If it doesn't feel natural or right, it probably isn't.
