Wild Animals and Leisure : Rights and Wellbeing Hardback
Edited by Neil (University of Otago, New Zealand) Carr, Janette (Adelaide SA University of South Australia, Australia) Young
Part of the Routledge Research in the Ethics of Tourism Series series
Wild animals form an integral component of the human leisure experience.
They are a significant part of the leisure industry and are economically valuable entities.
However, as sentient beings, animals also have rights and welfare needs, and, like humans, may also have their own leisure desires and requirements.
This collection provides an in-depth analysis of the rights and welfare of humans and wild animals as the two relate to one another within the sphere of leisure studies.
It examines a wide array of animals, such as wolves, elephants, dolphins and apes, in a diverse range of leisure settings in international locations, from captive wild animals in zoos, hunting, swimming with dolphins and animals used as educators and for tourist entertainment.
This book provides a forum for future considerations of wild animals and leisure and a voice for animal welfarist agendas that seek to improve the conditions under which wild animals interact with and are engaged with by humans.
