Elephants Are Being Exploited, and Priceline.com Is Involved

PETA and 85,000 supporters have e-mailed Priceline.com asking the company to stop offering bookings for exploitative elephant camps, but our pleas have been ignored.

This has to end. Elephants used for rides and other interactions with humans endure the constant threat of violence and are routinely kept chained.

Companies listen to their customers—please take the following actions to end Priceline.com’s support of elephant abuse.

Chat With Priceline’s Bot, and Urge It to End Bookings for Elephant Interactions

Not sure what to say? Use our sample comment:

I was shocked and disappointed to see that despite overwhelming evidence of the suffering that elephants endure at camps around the world, your company is still offering bookings to facilities that use these animals for rides and other forms of human entertainment. I won’t be using Priceline.com until it stops supporting elephant exploitation.

If the bot claims that the company doesn’t have elephant-activity bookings, pass along these URLs: https://www.priceline.com/travelguides/tgdetails.do?pageType=D&attrType=hotels&attrId=1920479#tab_ratings; https://www.priceline.com/travelguides/tgdetails.do?pageType=D&attrType=hotels&attrId=1918409.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
