There has been such a proliferation of such terms as “eco-tourism,” “wildlife tourism,” and “sustainable tourism” that one wonders what is legitimate and what is just greenwashing. But is there such a thing as wildlife tourism; i.e. paying to see wild animals in their homes, without contributing to exploitation, such as going on a safari in Botswana or a mountain gorilla trek in Rwanda? Today’s episode answers that question.
One of my goals has always been to take the word “vegan” out of the box called “vegan.” My goal is constantly thwarted by
*the overuse of the word vegan
*the use of “vegan” to refer to food as well as people
*the attempt by some vegans to narrow the definition
