Prohibit the exploitation of wild animals for entertainment purposes and ban the trade of wild animals.
Prohibiting the exploitation of wild animals for entertainment purposes because travelling with a variety of animal species, public appearances and frequent direct contact entail an increased risk of spreading zoonoses and cause animal suffering.
Banning the trade of wild animals for private keeping, human consumption as well as use in traditional medicines and immediately closing all markets that sell live wild animals to not only protect animals and ecosystems but help prevent future pandemics that arise from zoonotic diseases such as COVID-19, SARS, MERS, HIV and Ebola.
