          Abstract

          The recognition of animal welfare is reflected in national laws and policies to guide tourists and operators in dealing with animals. However, studies portray that tourists are ignorant that wildlife attraction is harmful to animals. This raises the issue as to whether the existing states' laws and regulations of zoos prepare tourists for sustainable tourism and tourism in more delicate destinations like the Antarctic. Using qualitative method, this paper focuses on Malaysia’s development of the Wildlife Conservation Act 2010 and concludes that although the Act improves the condition of animals, it is not the only solution for visitors’ knowledge conversation.
