The tourists are looking for places that are more special, exotic and experience very close to the large animal groups, such as the lion, sea turtle and the dolphin, to have a picture taken with them. After that, the person will post it on his social media, to get conscious as unconscious confirmation through the attention that others will give the person’s ego via likes, comments and share the picture.
If you post a picture of yourself or someone you know, you will feed others to wish it together and pass on the information that it is perfectly okay to get close to a wild animal, touch it with your bare hands or hold it. Through here you want to suppress the animal, because what is natural in that image for the animal natural behavior? BECAUSE the picture conveys the message that it is okay to do it against a wild animal. People who see your image lose understanding of what natural behavior is for a wild animal.
You may not know how harmful it is to continue giving this kind of image. Maybe your picture is taken with the best intention, perhaps of an animal that has been rescued? Unfortunately, those who see your picture will NOT REMEMBER your text to picture or your story in the video, they will REMEMBER the picture, feeling as they got and the thought that came afterwards. If the person looks up to you, they will begin to think that it is okay to have contact with a wild animal anywhere in the world. This results in the person will pay money to have a picture taken with a wild animal.
Why should beach after beach, rainforest after rainforest, savannah for glaciers be taken in by the tourists, yes, by you, by your friends, by your family and by your network, before you are full? Now you know how harmful it is to get taken and share this photo. What do you want to do from here on out?
