Please take action to support a complete ban on captive breeding of wildlife for all commercial purposes, wildlife markets, eating of wild animals and trade in wild animals and derivatives in China. 

The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) has raised great concern for wild animal protection and biodiversity. On 17 February the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s top legislature, announced that they will review a draft decision on banning the illegal wildlife trade, as a move to stop the eating of wild animals and protect the health and safety of China’s people.

We applaud the NPC of China for taking urgent steps to address the wildlife trade, but we urgently need your help to support a further amendment to the Wildlife Protection Law in China. Please show the support of the international community for a complete ban by the NPC on the captive breeding of wildlife for all commercial purposes, and the permanent closure of all wildlife markets and trade, as well as eating of wild animals in China. We are urging China to extend the recent ban on eating wildlife to include all 54 species on their list currently exempt from protection for food, fur, Traditional Chinese Medicine, derivative products and entertainment.

Please take action now to stop the commercial exploitation of wild animals in China. Thank you for participating and helping to create a more compassionate world by Caring for Life!
