    I don't think that that will have a deep impact.
    However, will TripAdvisor also no longer sell tickets to attractions where people can shoot with guns, where children have to work for a pittance or airplane tickets to destinations where people are observed and controlled by their government?
    What a hypocritical, inconsistent policy.

    Airline tickets per se too for fossil fuel burning!

    Also: This is pure symbol politics that will do zilch for species conservation in situ nor public awareness. Since mass tourism thks to TA is one of those penultimate environment adverse activity perhaps an eco tax on them to put climate and biodiversity conservation and reperation on TA business is in order?

    Perhaps we can start this now here

    This speed in this video has been doctored. Editing videos and posting them to suit an agenda is pathetic

    Adding the sad music has a similar effect.

    Yeah, it doesn't do anything for conservation, and from an animal welfare perspective, it could possibly make things worse for captive cetaceans.
    Big travel website not selling tickets to these attractions=less attendance=less money for the facilities=less money for the animals' care.
