Purpose: The connection between Tourism and Wildlife and their uses in terms of show and attractions are an age-old practice. In India it is one of the important components during visits to Historical places like Rajasthan. But today the Animal welfare is a significant issue and a matter of high concern. We could see and read many incidents of animal exploitation and hence this study makes a modest attempt to study the tourist’s mindset towards the various practices & activities which may fall under the category of tourist responsibility to Animal’s wellbeing. We strongly believe that the Tourist will play a very important and vital role in ensuring that these animals are not exploited in the name of Tourism Attraction. Design & Methodology: We surveyed 120 participants who experienced the role of Elephants in the Forts and palaces of Rajasthan using the contacts from pre-visited data collected from 3 well known Travel Agencies. Approach: Statistical tools like One-Way ANOVA (Welch’s), is being used to measure and compare significant relationship amongst different variables. Findings: Result suggests that Gender and Age may play an important role while educating the tourist and use of animals in a more humanly nature and some activities may not be required as part of Tourist attraction. Originality of the Research: The Research is an original article with a list of recommended measures, drawn for more sustainable use of the animals in Tourism Promotion and attractions.
