Illegal wildlife trade has affected all of us. It’s time to put a stop to it.
✅ I want to help stop online wildlife trafficking in online marketplaces
When nature is not protected, it puts our health, well-being, economies, food security, clean air and water sources at risk.
We need to confront the environmental drivers of pandemics by engaging businesses and governments to stop illegal wildlife trade.
What does it mean to you as an individual?
Consumers have the power to influence market demand. With your help, we can get businesses on board and work towards a real solution. Let us know your favorite online store and we will work with them to prevent illegal wildlife product listings on their platform.
A zoonotic disease is a disease that jumps from animals—wild or domestic—to humans. These jumps, known as spillovers, are increasingly common. Every year, 3-4 new outbreaks of zoonotic disease occur around the world. As habitats get destroyed, wildlife species are put into more regular contact with each other and humans. This lets microbes easily jump between species and new diseases to emerge.
Zoonotic diseases are a stark reminder of how people and nature are interconnected. To protect people from zoonotic disease, we must address the key, human-led drivers that put us at risk.
