Choose compassionate transport. An investigation by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals revealed the immense suffering of horses, donkeys, and camels forced to carry tourists under the hot desert sun at Petra. Handlers repeatedly hit the weary animals to keep them moving and between rides, they’re kept tied up, with no shade or relief from the heat. Please help to stop this cruelty by never taking an animal ride at Petra. New electric carts provide an ecological, comfortable, and safe means of transport for visitors, covering the 4-kilometre return journey between the Visitor Centre and the Treasury.
