Zoos & Circuses
HSI continues to work for all wild animals, both captive and free, from cruelty and avoidable suffering, from exploitation, or from threats to their survival or well-being. Where ever possible we work to improve the welfare standards of wildlife in zoos, seek to prevent the international trade in wildlife for entertainment, and work to release wildlife from cruel situations where they are suffering at the hands of humans.
