ABTA directs members to stop advertising elephant rides

Thanks to Save the Asian Elephants’ (STAE) constant lobbying of the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), ABTA now admits that all elephant rides and related activities are ‘unacceptable’ and they are directing their 5,000 corporate members to stop such advertising.

Duncan McNair of STAE welcomes this but says that more is needed.  A new UK law to ban the advertising and sale of any unethical Asian elephant related holiday is needed.
