For millions of wild animals around the world, life is miserable. It’s a cycle of pain and suffering for animals used as entertainment, for Traditional Asian Medicine or kept as exotic pets. Every animal deserves a life worth living from a captive lion used as a photo prop to a wild pangolin killed for its scales to a sugar glider treated as mere merchandise in the exotic pet trade.
Animal cruelty makes pandemics like Covid-19 possible. The coronavirus pandemic has made us realize that how we treat animals is directly linked to our health. Animals are at the heart of this pandemic but, of course, they’re not to blame. Humans are. It’s time to change our troubled relationship with wildlife and stop using them as commodities for entertainment, Traditional Asian Medicine, or as pets. It’s critical that governments, corporations and people end the exploitation of wild animals.
World Animal Protection is working to stop the cruel exploitation of wildlife, solve the root causes of animal suffering and move governments, corporations and people to end animal cruelty.
