Tourism, Parades & Elephant Rides
People love elephants. So when they travel abroad, it can be a thrill to get an elephant ride. But, as Juliette reports in the movie How I Became An Elephant, the elephants are constantly being prodded or hit with bullhooks that result in open wounds. So, it’s not worth it! Tourists vote with their dollars, so if you travel to an area with elephants, try to do something like visit a sanctuary instead.
