Animals need your protection. Across the world, animals suffer unthinkable cruelty – but you can help protect them from harm. Some animals are very young when they learn just how cruel people can be. Baby bears are being taken from the wild, in some cases forced to watch their mother killed in front of them, to face a lifetime of torture, all in the name of ‘entertainment’. Young elephants are easier to “train” – so the torture begins when they’re small. Beatings, starvation and sleep deprivation make sure their wild spirits are utterly broken, just so tourists can ride their backs on holiday. Captive dolphins are separated from their mothers far too young, confined in tanks 200,000 times smaller than their natural home and deprived of food so they can be trained to entertain tourists. But with your help, there’s hope.
