Journeys International Drops All Elephant Camps From Its Site

After hearing from PETA and more than 20,000 of our members and supporters—all in one single day—travel company Journeys International removed all elephant camps from its tours. Even though the company had agreed to remove elephant rides more than a year prior, it still offered trips to exploitative facilities that chained elephants, hit them with weapons, and forced them to perform in shows.
