Easia Travel

"Passionate lovers of our environment, we are heavily integrated with the destinations and communities we operate in. Indigenous flora and fauna are an essential part of what entices travellers to our environments and without the rich tapestry of insects, mammals and other animals (both wild and domestic), our destinations would lose a large part of their enticing allure.  

 

We are proud to join FOUR PAWS pledge to support the wellbeing of animals and encourage local authorities to help end the dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia."

Global Work and Travel

"We try to help animals as much as we possibly can, so it was completely natural to us to want to put forward our name to helping end the dog and cat meat trade. Having travelled to a variety of developing countries, I have seen many unpleasant conditions for animals, especially ones that are soon to be slaughtered. As humans, we should try to give our voices as much as we can to the animals that cannot speak."

Jürgen Himmelmann, CEO, Global Work and Travel
