#livekinder to end the Wildlife Trade

Stop the exploitation of wild animals

This year has turned attention to the link between how we treat animals and the health of humans and the planet. 

COVID-19 has widely been linked to a wildlife market in Wuhan, China, but more importantly, 70% of emerging infectious diseases have come from wild animals, so it is critical that leaders address the root cause to prevent the next pandemic, which is the dysfunctional relationship between humans, animals, and nature.

In particular, the exploitation of wildlife on an industrial scale for traditional medicine such as bear bile and tiger parts, entertainment, food, fashion such as fur and exotic leather, hunting trophies, and as exotic pets.

FOUR PAWS is part of the Coalition to Ban Wildlife Trade alongside other organisations, calling on G20 leaders to support a global commercial wildlife trade ban to help prevent a future pandemic.
