Travelling with Purpose
In 2019 Tucan Travel will complete a critical review 75% of our existing policies and systems.
This review will include refreshing our Animal Welfare Policy as an extension to our existing commitment to uphold animal rights. Since 2014 we have refused to offer elephant rides on any of our tours. We want to go further to ensure that all species are treated with respect. We will also revise our Anti Slavery and Child Welfare Policies. We will critically evaluate our products against these revised policies and advise all services within our supply chain of our zero tolerance towards human and animal exploitation. Any product that does not meet our revised standards by March 2020 will be changed or removed from our itineraries.
Tucan Travel also pledges to support the wellbeing of all of our staff and crew by launching an employee assistance programme by January 2020 and enabling access to a wide range of self-help and counselling, guidance and support for all staff and crew.
This pledge is important to us because we want to make a difference. As a small independent company there is a limit to what we can achieve so we will act with purpose to do what we can and trust Tucan Travellers to do the same. We will update the information available to our travellers to help them make informed decisions and provide guidance on how they can help us to support animals, humans and the habitats in our destinations. This pledge sets us on a path for change, and one that we believe will give security of mind to everyone booking and with us that we can make travel purposeful.
