We DO NOT publish articles that mention or recommend animal tourism or attractions such as zoos, marine parks and aquariums as most of these are abusive to animals.

Exceptions to this rule include articles featuring or recommending responsible animal tourism such as:

  • Wildlife safaris where the tour operators demonstrated responsible practices and kept a respectful distance from the animals. These include African safaris, whale watching, encounters with marine and other wildlife.
  • Reviews of responsible and well-managed wildlife sanctuaries or wildlife rescue and rehabilitation facilities, or your experience of volunteering in such facilities.

We do not publish press releases or news articles. We only accept content from creators with good reputations and demonstrated expertise in the topic of their content.

  • You must agree not to publish the article anywhere else for a month after it is published on AhoyMatey.
