DropTheProp is a campaign group founded in 2018 in response to further research showing that using animals as photo props is neither good for the tourists or the animals.
It is clear that traditional campaigning efforts simply are not working. The practice in the Jemaa El Fna Square is not only using monkeys who are endangered but it is illegal! It needs to stop and governments need to realise the devastating effects they cause by letting these practices carry on by turning a blind eye.
DropTheProp aims to use partnership working, research and also showcasing public disgust at the practices to make long-lasting change.
