5 documentaries about animals in tourism
We are aware that this is just one side – the negative side of it and We are sure that there are some places out there that treat their animals right. But it is still a problem when we forget that “wild is wild”. We have been taking part of this, swimming with dolphins, petting tigers and visiting the zoo. Some of the things we did not approve of but some of them were informative and seemed good. But we do want to bring the light to this industry and one way is to give you five documentaries that you can watch.
