STOP EATING WILDLIFE. STOP FUTURE PANDEMICS.


COVID-19: We talk about how many deaths the virus has caused, but do we remember where the virus came from?

It is believed that Wuhan’s wildlife market was the origin. We know from previous zoonotic disease epidemics, such as HIV, Ebola, SARS, and H5N1, that viruses can easily jump from wildlife to humans.

THE #STOPEATINGWILDLIFE CAMPAIGN


In addition to our continuous efforts on the ground, our #StopEatingWildlife social media campaign aims to fight the supply, demand, and consumption of wildlife meat by making Cambodian consumers more aware of the health risks of eating wildlife and how the trade supports the brutal snaring crisis of Cambodia’s wildlife. Furthermore, it aims to draw attention to the threat that the wildlife trade poses to public health at the global level to an international audience. Epidemiologists and conservationists around the world are calling for an end to the illegal wildlife trade, and Wildlife Alliance is joining them too.
