Andaman tour company ends human safaris
|Jarawa, Andaman Islands |
Following Survival International’s condemnation yesterday of human safaris to the Jarawa tribe on the Andaman Islands, the company Andaman Island Adventure has said it will stop promoting the tours.
The company was one of four highlighted by Survival for promoting illegal visits to, or sightings of, the Jarawa. It appears to have removed the relevant page from its website.
Many more companies sell such tours from their shops in the Andaman Islands.
The Indian government issued a public warning to tour operators after Survival alerted it to the safaris.
