The global trade of wild animals is cruel and puts our health at risk from pandemics. Every day, thousands of wild animals are poached or farmed and sold into the global multibillion-dollar wild animal trade – for food, for pets, for traditional medicine, and for entertainment. Beyond the pain inflicted on animals, we must stop this trade in wild animals now to help prevent future global health crises and protect our environment for generations to come. Join us in calling on the G20 to support and champion a global ban on the wildlife trade.
Wild animals like parrots, otters, and tortoises might seem like fun pets, but in reality, they are extremely difficult to care for, and ultimately, as wild animals they suffer. Captivity limits their natural behavior and places both their mental and physical well-being at risk. While kept as pets, these animals often suffer from chronic stress and poor physical health from being kept in environments that can’t give them what they need to be happy and healthy. Wild animals are not pets; they belong in their natural habitat. Make the pledge.
We know that eating less meat is better for farm animals, the planet, and our health. An approach to eating meat that can make a huge difference to your life and the lives of billions of factory-farmed animals; if more people started eating a little less, and higher welfare, meat each week, they could help the billions of animals who are factory farmed every year.
Big cats such as lions, tigers, cougars, leopards, and jaguars are wild animals and belong in the wild. Yet today, there are more tigers in captivity in the United States than in the wild. Individuals and families often purchase them as babies to be kept as pets, often ignoring just how large the animals grow. As a result, many are left to waste away in cages in backyards and basements. The Big Cat Public Safety Act would help end this cruelty. Click here to take action.
