The global wildlife trade is animal cruelty and puts our health and the world economy at risk from pandemics like COVID-19. Join us in calling on the G20 to end the wildlife trade. Forever.
End the global wildlife trade. Forever.
Every day, thousands of wild animals are poached, farmed or sold into the global multi-billion-dollar trade – for food, pets, traditional medicine and entertainment. Horrific conditions cause unimaginable suffering for every single animal involved. They also create a hotbed of zoonotic disease, leading to outbreaks like SARS and now COVID-19.
With the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping across the globe, we can no longer ignore the dangers of exploiting wild animals.
Beyond the pain inflicted on animals, we must stop this trade in wild animals now to help prevent future global health crises and protect our environment for generations to come.
As well as signing the petition, you can help end the global wildlife trade by: not visiting cruel wildlife tourist attractions when they reopen, not buying traditional medicine with wild animal parts and not buying exotic pets.
Demand world leaders act to end the suffering of wild animals and protect our health
When the G20 meet in November, they will focus on dealing with the pandemic and coordinating a global response.
That response must include a commitment to ending the global trade in wild animals forever.
This will help stop future pandemics and protect millions of animals.
Call on our leaders to protect wild animals, our health, the environment and the economy. Sign our petition today.
G20: End the wildlife trade
The global trade of wild animals is cruel, unsustainable and puts our health and the world economy at risk. We demand that the leaders of the G20 commit to a global ban on the wild animal trade, forever.
