Filter cruelty out of selfies

There are few places with a greater diversity of unique animals than the Amazon rainforest.

But the growing popularity of wildlife selfies means more and more of these animals are being exploited, abused and held captive in appalling conditions – all so they can be tourists’ photo props.

Sloths and other animals are torn from their mothers in the wild and forced into a life of near-constant handling and mishandling. When not in front of the camera, they’re often kept out of sight in filthy, cramped conditions.

It’s incredibly distressing for sloths, quiet and gentle animals, to be always surrounded by noisy tourists, and passed from stranger to stranger. It’s likely many don’t survive this torture more than six months.

Don’t be part of this ugly picture. Sign our Wildlife Selfie Code and help filter cruelty out of selfies.
