Wildlife conservation expert Adam M. Roberts “The Compassionate Conservationist” discusses travel and animal welfare, and how a new tourism consultancy, ANIMONDIAL, works in partnership with travel businesses, not-for-profit organisations (NGOs) and governments so that tourism brings greater protection to animals, their natural environments and the people that depend upon them.
