1 million of you have demanded G20 global leaders end the cruel, dangerous global wildlife trade. Thank you! Watch these wildlife advocates reading out a letter to the G20 global leaders in the video below.
End the Global Wildlife Trade. Forever.
Global leaders are meeting at the G20 Leaders’ Summit this weekend, 21-22 November.
By choosing to end wildlife trade, they can make one good thing come out of 2020.
Every day they don’t act, thousands more wild animals are poached or farmed and sold into the global multi-billion-dollar trade - as food, pets, traditional medicine and entertainment.
Not only is this animal cruelty, it’s also putting us at risk from zoonotic diseases like COVID-19 and destroying delicate ecosystems.
When the G20 meet on 21-22 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.
G20: End the wildlife trade. Forever.
The global trade of wild animals is cruel and puts our health and the world economy at risk. We demand that the leaders of the G20 and our own Prime Minister - The Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern - commit to a global ban on the wild animal trade.
