Behind that WAZA membership, these venues hide their activities and are promoted by travel and tourism companies as high welfare venues, when the reality tells another story. On assignment for World Animal Protection documenting in Buenos Aires, Argentina an offline activity asking WAZA to raise their standards and to protect animals from cruel venues and practices.
