Companies such as Virgin Experience Days market ‘zookeeper’ experiences to customers, where they're invited to feed and handle captive wild animals. This is exploitation, with innocent victims who are harassed, molested, and used as props and toys for businesses’ private gain. Find out more about this cruel industry in our campaign launch news page.

We are calling on Virgin Experience Days to immediately and permanently stop the sale of animal encounters, ‘zookeeper’, and animal handling experiences. Animals are not toys and it is irresponsible, disrespectful, and mercenary to sell contact with them.

However you choose to contact them, please see our Supporter Engagement Guidance for information on how best to communicate when taking part in an online action.
