Throughout Europe hundreds of thousands of animals suffer for human entertainment in zoos, circuses and other animal ‘attractions’. ENDCAP is the European network to END the keeping of wild animals in CAPtivity. ENDCAP is a dynamic initiative and working throughout the European Union to investigate captive animal exploitation, expose cruelty, and alleviate suffering.
Co-ordinated by Born Free’s Zoo Check team, this proactive animal welfare collaboration focuses predominantly on zoos and circuses across Europe. ENDCAP brings together like-minded organisations to share information and expertise, and work in partnership on specific issues and campaigns, to improve welfare standards for Europe’s captive wild animals. By working together, organisations can pool resources, share information and expertise, and achieve more with greater efficiency.
