Ban live wildlife markets and trade!

Ban wildlife markets and trade! – The Humane Society of the United States

As the deadly coronavirus continues to spread around the world, it is more important than ever to address the dire public health threats posed by the sale and trade of live wildlife. Markets where live wild animals are sold are a human health hazard and animal welfare nightmare that have been the source of previous pandemics in addition to being the likely origin of the virus that causes COVID-19.

We need the U.S. and all countries to permanently ban the trade and transport of live wildlife for human consumption to reduce the risk of mutation or another pandemic.

The Preventing Future Pandemics Act, H.R. 151 and S. 37, will ban the import, export and sale of certain live wildlife in the U.S. when the primary purpose is for human consumption, and will bolster U.S. leadership and resources to end the trade globally and to eliminate wildlife trafficking. 

Your voice is needed to ensure passage of this critical bill!

TAKE ACTION


Please make a brief, polite phone call to your Senator and each of your U.S. Representatives. 

Look up their phone numbers. 

You can say: “Please support the Preventing Future Pandemics Act, H.R. 151 and S. 37, which will ban the import, export and sale of certain live wildlife for human consumption in the U.S. and will position the U.S. as a global leader in zoonotic disease prevention.”

After making your call (please do not skip that crucial step!), fill in and submit the form below to send a follow-up message. Editing your message will help it stand out.
