Dear (MP NAME)
Demand Government honours its promise to introduce a ban on advertising of brutal elephant venues
I write as your constituent to express my deep shock at reports that our government is considering betraying its promises to the country to ban the advertising and sale of access to “attractions” abroad where elephants and other species are routinely brutalised and tortured for easy use in tourism.
Numerous promises of change by the industry have proved empty and no steps have been taken during lockdown to improve safety or welfare.
New law is urgently needed and will steer the market to ethical tourism for elephants and other endangered species. As stated in the government’s Action Plan: “The way we treat animals reflects our values and the kind of people we are.”
Please demand the Prime Minister honours his promise to introduce a ban on advertising in the UK of brutal elephant venues abroad.
