Last weekend we were at Camp Bestival in Dorset hosting a tiger themed stall to let people know about the growth in Thailand’s 'tiger selfie' tourism and how it can be stopped.

Children and their families let us know how much they loved tigers by making tiger badges and masks and painting tiger t-shirts. We had lots of donations and petition signatures calling on TripAdvisor to stop promoting and profiting from cruel wildlife attractions such as Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand.

Many tigers suffer terribly for the sake of a photograph, so we decided to ask people to take a ‪#‎betterselfie. Do you have a #betterselfie? Send yours in! You can see some of the better selfies we took at the festival below.

A life in entertainment is no life for a wild animal, if you haven't done so already please sign our petition calling on TripAdvisor to stop profiting from animal cruelty.
