ASTA Partnerships and Global Support

ASTA joined the U.S. Wildlife Trafficking Alliance to help travelers recognize and avoid purchasing the illegal wildlife products that are decimating global populations of elephants, rhinos, tortoises and other endangered species. This public-private partnership works together with governmental entities to raise awareness about the dangers of wildlife trafficking and to stop consumer demand for endangered species products.

A Wildlife Trafficking Alliance toolkit has been created for members to use for their personal or business Facebook or twitter pages.  

 

ASTA supports the travel industry in the ongoing battle against child sex tourism with its adoption of the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism. The Society encourages its members to support measures taken to counter the exploitation of women and children.
