MYTH: Paying to interact with lions is acceptable as the money goes to conservation

There is no evidence that money raised through interactive captive wildlife activities is donated to the conservation of the species in the wild.

Furthermore, not one credible conservation organisation would be willing to raise funds in such an unethical manner.

The reality is that the lions and other big cats kept in captive facilities offering hands-on interactions are part of a vicious cycle of abuse and exploitation that serves no conservation value.

Don’t be part of the problem #CancelCaptivity
