We hate to think that we are in any way responsible for the injury of any wild animals of even worse the elimination of a species. Even if we are not directly responsible we see things on a daily basis that greatly effect the lives of creatures on land, in the sea and in the air.

We take our responsibility seriously as wildlife viewing tour operators and do not want to see things such as the story in the link below continue.
