Airbnb’s new “animal experience” platform aims to offer animal-loving travelers an alternative to petting zoos and marine parks. Guests can book daytime activities like hiking with rescue dogs, visiting with llamas or picnicking with pigs, visits that can involve education about the animals from their owners.

It’s part of Airbnb’s broader push to expand its “experiences” category, which also includes tours, educational courses and multi-day excursions. The company hopes to draw in new customers, particularly as its lodging platform, still its primary business, draws continued scrutiny from regulators.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
