Share this action:

The extraction of animals from the wild, and the sale of live and freshly slaughtered wildlife in markets for food, creates conditions that can lead to pandemics such as the COVID-19 crisis that is currently devastating communities across the globe.

Please tell Congress that we need to close markets and end the commercial trade in live and fresh wildlife for human consumption while ensuring consideration of the needs and rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities that are dependent on wildlife consumption for their food security. It’s within our collective power to make the future safer both for humanity and for wildlife.

Tell Congress: to prevent future pandemics, close markets and shut down the commercial trade in live and fresh wildlife for human consumption.
